Tripura orders ban on political events on school premises

Tripura has banned restrictions on political rallies and programmes on school premises during school hours. The orders were issued after the state’s education department received some reports against a section of headmasters who had been found allowing such programmes during school hours. However, for any such programme, a NOC from the education department has been made mandatory.

“It is hereby reiterated that no school resources including playground shall be used by any political party/organizer to conduct political functions/rallies etc. No objection Certificate from the Director Secondary/Elementary Education or concerned District Education Officer as the case may be a prerequisite for organizing of other programmes as well strictly during holidays or after school hours,” the order undersigned by Director of school education department Chandni Chandran reads.

“…it is completely unacceptable that the Headmasters are allowing such activities seriously hampering teaching-learning activities and violating the norms of the Department. The undersigned is to inform all Headmasters/TICs that strict action will be taken against them for the violations already committed and to warn others against any such violations in future,” the order stated.

“In case any organization is planning to conduct a non-permissible activity or a permissible activity without obtaining approval, it is the duty of the HM/TIC to inform the Inspector of Schools/District Education Officers. After receipt of such information, the matter has to be immediately taken up with local administrative and Police authorities – Sub Divisional Magistrate & Sub Divisional Police Officers requesting cancellation of permission given for the programme. Any such request should be intimated to concerned District Magistrates and Director Elementary/Secondary Education for follow up action,” read the order explaining the consequences of violation.
