CBSE Alert Schools Against Fake Letters Attributed To It By Wizcorp Edtech To Grab Tenders
The Central Board Of Secondary Education (CBSE) has released an alert to notify school authorities regarding a fraudulent letter exploited by a certain company to unlawfully obtain tenders. In the advisory, CBSE points out that a company by the name of Wizcorp Edtech Pvt Ltd has been utilizing a fabricated letter falsely attributed to the board to secure government tenders and contracts, primarily targeting schools in Maharashtra.
CBSE explicitly clarifies, "CBSE unequivocally affirms that there is no affiliation whatsoever with the purported letter circulated by Wizcorp Edtech Pvt Ltd. The mentioned letter has never been endorsed or released by CBSE, and any individual claiming otherwise is engaged in deceitful and deceptive conduct." The board urges all educational establishments and schools, especially those situated in Maharashtra, to exercise caution when engaging with Wizcorp Edtech Pvt Ltd, as stated in the public advisory. CBSE further asserts that it cannot be held accountable for any financial or other ramifications stemming from the consideration or acceptance of this falsified or counterfeit letter.
In the public announcement, CBSE also explicitly communicates its intent to pursue legal remedies against Wizcorp Edtech Pvt Ltd for its fraudulent actions in disseminating a fabricated letter. Concurrently, CBSE issues a cautionary directive to schools against commencing the academic session prior to April 1st. The board underscores that integrating extracurricular activities like life skills development, value education, physical well-being, work education, and community service within the academic calendar leaves students with inadequate time.
Anurag Tripathi, the Secretary of CBSE, conveys, "It has come to our attention that a number of affiliated schools have initiated their academic sessions unusually early in the year." Tripathi also directs school administrators not to adopt this practice, as it could potentially overwhelm students, leading to challenges in keeping up with the curriculum, thus causing stress and burnout.
