There’s no doubt that India is the country where education and civilization have taken their roots and have been spread to the whole world from here.

It has been in Delhi in any event 14 lakh kids get admissions to schools in various classes every year. However, a school gets recognition only if it has been affiliated through a prominent board such as the Central Board of Secondary Education (CBSE). There are certain rules and regulations involved in getting a school affiliated through the CBSE board.
