How to start a new ICSE school in India?
Over the years, the government has taken various initiatives to make educational institutions accessible to the society at large in a bid to ensure education for all. Although government schools are the largest provider of elementary education in our country with over 80% of all recognized schools being run or supported by the government, but still the demand for private schools is on the rise. We need more and more good quality competent schools to spread the social cause of education and to increase the literacy rate in India.

Why Feasibility Study is important for school project?

For any new school promoter it is very important to understand the viability of the project. To do so, one must do a feasibility study, either on his own or by a professional agency. This also gives a fair idea of investment required under various heads. Professional agencies like us also provide a 10 year financial plan (DPR) to the clients. This study will help in understanding the duration required for Operational Break Even Point and the Capital Break Even Point. This will also enable the promoter to have proper fund planning to meet the requirements.
