Controversies[edit]

Student's expulsion and MNS protests[edit]

In 2010, Maharashtra Navnirman Sena (MNS) activists allegedly ransacked Vibgyor High School in Mumbai,[51] protesting against the expulsion of a female student at the Goregaon school, reportedly because her mother had led morchas against the fee hike effected by the school.[52]

Principal of Pune school held for land scam[edit]

In 2013, the principal of Vibgyor High Pune and her spouse were arrested in Hyderabad for allegedly trying to sell defence land to a Hyderabad-based education trust for Rs 18.5 crore, claiming to be the owners.[53]

Pune School directed to refund fees on cancellation of admission[edit]

A consumer forum in Pune ordered Pune-based Vibgyor High School to refund the entire fees upon cancellation of admission to the father of two children besides paying a compensation of Rs 10,000.[54][55]

Bangalore rape incident[edit]

On 2 July 2014, a six-year-old female student was allegedly raped by two staffers of Vibgyor High school, Marathahalli, Bangalore.[56] A medical examination confirmed the girl was sexually abused.[57] The incident triggered large-scale protests in Bangalore[58][59][60] and across India.[61] Eight staff members were detained by police in connection with the incident.[62] The Bangalore police initially arrested a skating instructor at the school, although he was later released as innocent.[63][64] Two gym teachers at the school were then arrested for the crime a couple of weeks later.[65][66] Charges of gang rape were filed against the two in October.[67]

Following the rape incident, Karnataka government transferred Bangalore city Police Commissioner Raghavendra Auradkar.[68]

The chairman of the chain of schools, Rustom Kerawala, was arrested on 23 July 2014 on charges of intentionally suppressing information about the rape.[69][70] He was later released on bail, and charges were filed in October 2014 under The Protection of Children from Sexual Offenses Act.[67][71]

Refusal to Refund fees[edit]

Several parents moved their children to other schools due to the lack of accountability shown by Vibgyor management. The Department of Public Instruction (DPI) has directed the controversy-hit Vibgyor High School in Marathahalli to refund the full amount to the parents who opt to take their children out of the school. Several parents complained that even after the DPI order, the school was denying refund of the amount.[72]
