The commission has directed Kendriya Vidyalaya Sangathan (KVS) to disclose whether they have framed any policies regarding corporal punishments against students, details of incidents, compensation liable and paid every year starting from this academic year within three months. All 1,099 branches of Kendra Vidalaya Schools will be affected by this order.
CIC has also asked school boards like CBSE and ISCS to take in account incidents of corporal punishments and set up multi-disciplinary panel for inquiry.

The order by Information Commissioner, M Sridhar Acharyulu came in response to an RTI application by Bhramanand Misshra who had sought an inquiry into corporal punishment of a student by KV teacher Yagya Dutt Arya in Pilibhit.

The CIC ordered disclosure of the information as well as that of all teachers who had been punished for corporal assaults on children. Directing KVS to adopt the guidelines against corporal punishment outlined by the National Commission for Protection of Child Rights (NCPCR), Acharyulu said, “It will go a long way in making school a place of pleasant learning free from assaults and humiliations.''
