How do I start a Primary School affiliated by CBSE?

In India, opening a school is a time consuming process but the unending demand of the schools has increased the interests of more and more people as they are stepping forward to start a venture.
CBSE is a self-financing body that takes into consideration the needs and requirements of the affiliated schools.

Various steps are involved in opening a school and getting affiliation like procurement of No Objection Certificate or recommendation by state education department. Therefore, if an individual wants to get CBSE Affiliation, then they have to seek permission from the state department.
