PROCUDURE FOR DISCIPLINARY ACTION
For a meaningful education discipline is indispensible. A Disciplinary committee is in place to deal with cases of indiscipline. We believe that disciplinary measures must be corrective rather than being purely punitive. The Disciplinary committee is there to help instill and inculcate discipline. The committee presided by the Principal is assisted by a team of senior teachers. The committee awards merit cards to deserving students and demerit cards for indiscipline and has the power to counsel, reprimand, suspend or expel students depending on the nature and gravity of the indiscipline.
Exceptional presentations, participation and winning of major tournaments or publications of articles in magazines (other than the school magazine), or in News papers or contribution in social work etc. are rewarded with merit cards. Indiscipline on the other hand will lead to the issue of demerit cards. The issue of demerit cards will also result in the deduction of House points.
Demerit cards are issued after due investigation and deliberation only. The decision of the Disciplinary committee will be final.
- Bills are dispatched one week in advance for the forthcoming month and have to be settled before 10th of each current month, failing which a surcharge of 5% will be added to the bill amount and an additional surcharge of 10% will be added to the total due amount for the payment made after two months.

POLY BAG FREE ZONE
In order to create awareness and to contribute to environmental protection Maharshi has declared the campus a ‘POLY BAG FREE ZONE’. The school has banned the use of plastic/ poly bags and wrappers. Parents are requested not to allow their child to bring any plastic/ polythene packaged items/ food or carry bags to the school.
The school cafeteria serves a variety of hygienic food to day-scholars. Students are not allowed to bring cash to the school. Parents are advised to buy coupons in advance and give the same to the child/children as per their daily requirement.
Children are taken on excursions as per the requirement, and an additional bill is sent to meet the expenses incurred. This is compulsory for all students.

COMPLAINTS AND SUGGESTIONS
Verbal complaints are not entertained. Parents are requested not to get into disputes with any members of the staff but to put down their grievances, complaints or suggestions in writing and forward the complaint letter in a sealed envelope to the principal.
If the situation so warrants, alterations in fees, uniform, rules and regulations, etc. will be made by the School Managing Committee (SMC). An advance notice will be given to parents in such cases. Drastic changes will be avoided as far as possible.
A cordial relationship among the school, parents and students is very crucial for the development of a child’s full potential. Therefore, parent-teacher meetings are held in the school from time to time to share information about the students’ activities, their personal growth and academic progress so that necessary steps can be taken for their further improvements. In addition, special meetings with individual subject teachers are also arranged for parents on their request to discuss their ward’s progress in his/her studies. Any suggestion from parents and guardians is always welcome, and will be taken as instrumental in bringing a positive change to the student.
