The Central Board of Secondary Education (CBSE) has sought a report from the Gujarat Education department on how the land of a school was leased out to self-styled godman Nithyanand's ashram in Ahmedabad without its permission, according to officials.

"The board has written to the State Education Department to inquire into the matter of leasing out the land of DPS Maninagar, Ahmedabad to Swami Nityananda ashram without permission of the board," a senior CBSE official said.

"It has been asked to conduct the inquiry expeditiously and convey the outcome of the report and status of No Objection Certificate (NOC) issued by the state department to the school for seeking CBSE affiliation," the official added.
