The Rishabh Academy Co-educational English Medium School in Meerut has imposed new rules for 2800 students between Class 1-12.

The school asked students to get Yogi haircuts, not bring non-vegetarian food to campus and other personal impositions. The rules go beyond CBSE guidelines and norms for affiliated schools.

The matter came to light when several students were refused entry for not having correct haircuts.

School management justifies move

The Management Committee of the school said "We basically want very short haircuts, of the kind the Army gives. Also, the students have been told strictly to not keep beards as this is not a madrassa or a place where they come for namaz."

Will not tolerate inter-community friendships: School
