Thanks for the valuable feedback Ragu...... No wonder they are keen in opening branch after branch with no focus on child's education.......It's high time that parents do not just fall for the brand image ......As these branded school are more focussed on opening new branches rather than focusing on children......especially if they are a new school, they play havoc on the children's Phsychology......they learn from mistakes using our children as samples! When a school opens many branches every where ......their greed is exposed.....and is run like a business entity. Velammal is one classic example.......very sad!!!

Velammal New Gen School Medavakkam - Untold Tragedy Story of Chennai CBSE

We have opted this school to our Little boy since this campus is walkable from our home but its a total disaster for us & our Kid So we are planning to move out of Velammal.

1.      First of all its a construction yard and I wont call this campus as a School at all.

2.      No facilities... Yes literally no facility for anything and everything

  • No Play ground
  • No outdoor activities
  • No sports day
  • No annual day
  • No power backup
  • No proper water supplies
  • Not sufficient wash rooms
  • Not enough staffs - Especially if you are looking for Play school & KGs please dont come to velammal, medvakkam. They are scoring '0' in this area. Kids are going to rest rooms on their own where there are risks for physical injuries as well as Infections.
  • No parents teacher association

3.      They committed to open the school by June but they could open only by August but we paid school fee for the whole academic year. No apologies or refund from the Management till now.

4.      They committed for Air conditioned class rooms also charged fee for that but till now none of their class rooms are air conditioned

5.      They are distributing the actual uniforms during end of the academic year and that too just the materials / incomplete one.

I am writing this not to discourage parents who are collecting feedback about Velammal but just to create awareness about this campus. There was a protest against the management last week and parents have formed a group in WhatsApp and Hike messengers to fight with the management to get all the facilities committed by the management during the admission.

After this protest Management has installed a power generator for the power backup and installed air conditioners for few class rooms. Still it will take minimum 3 years to provide all the facilities but they have drastically increased the school fee this year (from 52,000 to 90,000)

So parents.. Go for Velammal New Gen Medavakkam only if  you want to spoil the play school & kinder Garden experience of your little ones.

Bottom line: There are many corporation schools running in Chennai and they are doing better than velammal New Gen, Medavakkam. But they are far from our home so we are moving to a different CBSE school from next year.

Hi all,
I made a big mistake of admitting my kid to Velammal New Gen Medavakkam. 
- They charged us for Aircon - but no air con.
- Charged for Uniform - Uniform not given even after 4 months of school. When asked, no response.
- No proper communication about school holidays. They keep changing every week.
- Only on friday will come to know whether saturday they have school or not.
- NEW GEN - nothing difference from CBSE. They kept that name for increasing the fee.

Whatever promise they give at the time of admission are all FALSE promise.

Worst infra structure. Not worth paying that much money to them.

We are residing in nanmangalam.
Planning to get admission in the same school  for 1st std- velammal new gen near kovilambakkam-Hows the fee structure and teaching /admission procedure/private fascilty - contact num?.please share your feedback

600100 2017-12-05 14:48:37


Already mentioned, they aren't maintaining their promise. Don't expect Air-con, You cannot plan holidays, schedules are all last minute update. Vidyashram is good. New Gen - not a bug difference. Only difference is the fee.

Hi all,

People who residing medavakkam to camproad can prefer M.A.V Vidhyashram for their kids.
Felt comfortable on their procedures and policies.
Admission going on... 

Facilities good and decent environment nature for kids 
Fees to normal only. Instead of paying high fees in other branded schools and get nothing.


2o20 2018-03-02 16:33:43


Compare with Surapet (60K) , Medavakkam has higher fees (80K) .


2o20 2018-03-02 16:35:06


I agree. No Extra curricular activities and no written works. No communication. Teacher's attrition more within one year.

Not worth it..... please think twice 

rsubr003 2018-06-12 13:35:31



Please share your experience with velammal new-gen school medavakkam, i am looking to put my kid there for pre-kg.

Smiley4u 2018-06-13 06:38:47


Opt for some other schools 

Sanmsk 2018-06-14 12:44:44


Good decision. Try for school with better infra and suggest me as well.

600100 2018-06-14 14:14:31


Velammal Newgen is literally looting money. Fees are too high and the facilities are horrible. The worst is the toilet. In the name of cost cutting they don't even spend money on toilet amenities. While going for PTM, the bathrooms will be neat/ clean and refreshing. My daughter always complaint during normal days. They charge us for Air-con but they never on it most of the time. Better opt for some other school.

Worst experience. Please try for some other school. They never respect parents word and never listen to parents. They never installed CCTV even after 1 year of follow and now they have 500+ students still not fixed CCTV in Madipakkam school. Look for any school which has good infrastructure. Also kids are playing in concrete floor which is very dangerous of they fell down.

Sanmsk 2018-06-24 16:44:41


Everything you wrote is true.

Hi, worried to hear. My kid was the first batch in std 1 at medavakkam school. His school experience was a night mare. His school going dreams were shattered, since he felt unhappy we've moved him at 2nd term in std 2.. Now he is a happy school goer.

probcert 2019-06-04 08:23:27
