India’s CBSE to set up office in Dubai

India’s Central Board of Secondary Education (CBSE) will open a centre in Dubai to cater to its schools in the region, an Indian minister announced on Wednesday.

Speaking via Skype from New Delhi, Dr M.M. Pallam Raju, Minister for Human Resource Development, told a packed conference of CBSE schools at the Indian High School in Dubai: “I am happy to say that a CBSE sub-regional centre will be opened in Dubai [shortly].”

He said the centre will cater to specific needs of CBSE schools in the region and co-ordinate with NCERT for timely availability of textbooks, besides addressing other issues such as fee structure etc.

Vineet Joshi, CBSE Chairman, told XPRESS that the centre would be ready in a couple of months. “The biggest challenge facing CBSE schools in the region is the increasing number of students – there are 60,000 students between grades 9 and 12 alone - and the huge responsibility it calls for. The regional centre will help deal with specific issues concerning them.”
