The state education minister Vinod Tawde told the legislative assembly that nearly 70 schools of Indian Education Society (IES) are flouting the school rules by taking more capitation fees and carrying out construction work and repairs without inviting tenders. He said that he has received complaints of the same and hence he has decided that the state will carry out a forensic audit of these schools.

Once the HC takes the decision on the same, we will take action,” Vinod Tawde, Education minister.
