Educational institutions in Chennai have been notorious for imposing regulations on students- from strict dress codes to access to technology. Now a school in the city has come up with a Facebook ban for its students.
Srimathi Sundaravalli Memorial School in Chennai does not permit its students to operate any accounts on social networking sites like Facebook and Twitter. Distributing forms that require a declaration from the parents of the students, this school has taken violation of privacy to a new level.

Ironically, a parent took to Twitter to express dissent over the declaration form.
The form asks the parents to tick two boxes- one that says that the ward does not hold any social networking account and another that says that the ward will not open an account till the time he/she is a student of the school.
The school authorities confirmed the rule when The News Minute contacted them. They were however, unavailable for further comment on the rule.
