District Information System of Education (DISE)
In the light of the Right of children to Free and Compulsory Education (RTE) Act, 2009 the
Government of India has revised the DISE Data Capture Format (DCF).
The importance of timely submission of complete and accurate information through District
Information System of Education (DISE) has been emphasized by the Board in the earlier circular issued to the schools No. CBSE/AFF/Circular No. 3/2009 dated 20th October, 2009.
It is reemphasized that every head of the institution has a responsibility to ensure timely
submission of accurate data to the District Information System of Education (DISE) in the uniform structure developed by the Government of India. Therefore, schools are requested to cooperate with the local DISE Agency to achieve the targets set by the Government.
The Affiliation Bye-Laws of CBSE Rule 13.3 also prescribe that “the school shall supply
information and returns called for by the Board/State or Central Government within the
prescribed time given for its furnishing to the authority concerned”. Any non co-operation or
default in timely submission of information asked by the State/Central Government Authorities can lead to invoking of provisions against school under rules of Affiliation Bye-Laws.
Therefore all the Heads of Institutions affiliated to CBSE are requested to cooperate with
various Government Agencies in the process of collection of date through District Information
System of Education (DISE) and Secondary Education Management and Information System
(SEMIS) by submitting accurate information in the structured format within the time frame fixed for the same.
