The order also mentioned that the Delhi government recognises : Central Board  of Secondary Education (CBSE), Council for the Indian School Certificate Examinations (ICSE), and National Institute of Open Schooling (NIOS) only and the government does not run any State board. The DoE asked to all societies/ trusts/ agencies/ organisations and individuals to discontinue education activities from the academic session 2018-19 and action would be taken against those who would fail to follow the order. Any person who establishes or runs schools without certificate of recognition or continues to run a school after withdrawal of recognition would be fined and the fine amount could reach upto Rs. 1 lakh also. “Any such schools can seek recognition till 31 May’, it added.
