Memo No. 107/Sec/23 Date. 05/04/2023


From: Prof. Subrata Ghosh, Secretary, West Bengal Board of Secondary Education


Sub: Extension of tenure of the Managing Committees/ Adhoc Committees/ Organising Committes/ Administrators of recognised Secondary Schools upto 15/07/2023

It has come to the notice of the Board large number of schools have submitted election programmes for their respective Managing Committee (as applicable) in the Month of April and May 2023. However, due to the upcoming Panchayat Election 2023, whose schedule is expected to be announced shortly, resulting in pre election restrictions, therefore, constitution of Managing Committee/ Organising Committees/ Ad-hoc Committees will not be possible.

Similarly the terms of D.D.O./ Administrator ending during this period cannot be extended for the said restrictions.

To avoid administrative vaccum and consequent hardship upon the schools, extension of the term of Managing Committee/ Ad-hoc Committee/ Organising Committee/ Administrator for a short period, seems necessary.

Therefore, it is hereby notified that the tenure of Managing Committee/ Ad-hoc Committee/ Organising Committee/ Administrator is extended upto 15/07/2023. From this day of notification till upto 01/06/2023, no election programme shall be conducted in the school for reconstitution of Managing Committee. Between 02/06/2023 to 15/07/2023, the reconstitution of Managing Committee/ Organising Committee/ Ad hoc Committee of schools be completed, as deemed necessary.

Nevertheless, the following be noted:

  1. The Board, reserves the right to appoint Administrator/ Ad-hoc Committee where the same will be necessary for Administrative reasons.
  2. This circular is not applicable in respect of schools where contrary order from the Hon’ble Court prevails.
  3. In case of any doubt or dispute in the matter of holding election for constitution/ reconstitution of Managing Committee at any stage, the matter shall be referred to the Board.
  4. If the schools fail to hold election, as applicable, between 02/06/2023 to 15/07/2023 as per adopted election programme without bonafide reasons, such schools will not get the benefit of this circular.

This Notification is being issued with the approval of competent authority.
