School’s bid for own food stayed by HC

23,September, 2016

CHENNAI: A school’s attempt to ban home-cooked and anyoutside food for its students, and make lunch prepared by its own vendor mandatory, has been stayed by the Madras high court.

Granting interim injunction restraining Hiranandani Upscale School at Kelambakkam on OMR, Justice M Sathyanarayanan said a circular issued by the CBSE director only sought to inspect students’ lunch boxes for unhealthy food. "The circular mandates a particular institution to not compel students to take lunch or snacks provided by it by paying charges," he said.

The matter was brought to court’s notice by a parent, Bharathi Rajendran who said that 600 of them signed a petition against the school’s decision.
