Unregistered madrasas have been given 3 months to sign up under the Madrasa Education Board

The Education Ministry has given three months’ time to madrasas, running without government permission, to get registered under the Madrasa Education Board.

The Technical and Madrasa Education Division of the ministry issued an order in this regard on Sunday.

The madrasas have also been ordered to drop the words “cadet” and “international” from their names.

The order, signed by Assistant Secretary Abdul Khalek, asked madrasas to follow the curriculum and textbooks of the National Curriculum and Textbook Board (NCTB) and Bangladesh Madrasa Education Board.

According to the order, the madrasas have to hoist the national flag and students must sing the national anthem.

Each madrasa has to be registered under the Madrasa Board and tuition fees will have to be fixed and collected like other secondary education institutions, the order also stated.

The Directorate of Madrasa Education, Madrasa Education Board, deputy commissioners, district education officers, upazila executive officers and education officers will monitor the activities of the madrasas regularly.
