The rules state that:

"Special training for the special category children shall be undertaken by the school management to integrate them with other children. Teachers and the school management should be sensitized for the proper integration of these children through professionally conducted trainings."


"Under no circumstances should the special category children be discriminated against regarding their access to infrastructure, co-curricular activities or in the behavior of teachers, management and/or students. A serious contravention of this rule may lead to the withdrawal of recognition."
