Delhi High Court and CBSE have ordered to stop commercial activities (selling uniforms, books etc) in schools but hardly any impact visible on ground. It can only be achieved when all school specific items (like uniforms, books, notebooks etc) are removed and only generic are allowed. Otherwise it will create more troubles for parents as well. Though we are discussing CBSE affiliated private, public schools here but these points are applicable for schools affiliated to state boards as well.
Does school specific uniforms, specifically adopted books, branded notebooks and other school branded items anyway help students in academics, learning process, in any other manner?
It will save lot of school administration critical time wasted on uniform, books, notebooks related matters like dealing with uniform shop vendor, book shop vendor, kids and parents complains etc. Schools should focus rather more on education quality, student safety, better teaching methodology, imparting values to students, teachers training, students issues. Schools must not engage in any commercial activity other than imparting best education to future of country (children).

What should be done to stop schools from commercial activities?
1. Same school uniform (at least within state)?
A set of 3-5 uniforms (like in UK) can be finalised in each state and school may be given freedom to choose one say white shirt, grey trouser and similar combination for girls. Schools may have (if want) small tag with school name placed with pin on shirt to distinguish particular school. May have particular house coloured (out of defined standard 4-5 colours) scarf/band rather than complete new uniform. Similarly common uniform colour sweater/blazer can be defined for winter. State education department, CBSE, private school representative and other key stakeholders may be invited to this decision making process and must not be changed frequently.

2. All CBSE schools must follow same books for all classes
CBSE must adopt some standard books for all CBSE pattern schools for all classes and make those mandatory in all affiliated (no other book can be forced to students). CBSE may go with NCERT books or some different books but only these books MUST be taught in all affiliated schools. Schools may have freedom where teachers can refer other good books, tools, supporting material but cannot ask students to buy.

3. No school specific notebook, diary etc material
Students must be allowed to use generic notebooks, almanac, diaries and any other kind of stationary, tools, study material from market and not be forced to buy school branded or recommended product.

Benefits of this
1. Students will read best quality books, prepared by the best experts. Quality of education will improve and learning process will be easier for students.
2. Student and parents don’t need to worry (for books, notebooks, uniform) on school, city change.
3. These books, notebooks, uniforms and all other stationaries will be easily available in open market in ordinary shops, in neighbourhood market. No need to buy from school only during specific hours.
4. Books, notebooks, uniform prices will come down heavily
5. Reuse of school books, uniform will increase that will reduce burden on parents and save so many trees. Reduce wastage of uniforms.

Request all Indian citizen to sign this petition in the interest of all students, parents and nation.
