Can a school in India run without any affiliation till 8th (read description please)

By sudhendu | Nov 3, 2015

Hello Everyone,
Hope all are doing well.I am currently doing some research (on education in India) and in that, I am stuck around the question of "whether a K-10 school in India run without affiliation to any board (State board or IGSCE, CBSE, IB, etc.). The idea is to provide school with 'inbound' curriculum till 8th standard and then do affiliation with any board (for 9th and 10th standard, mainly to provide a valid exit certificate to student). We teach children our way till 8th standard. This is to develop a more dynamic and relative up-scaled courseware.
The question then is:
1. Is this legally possible in India?
2. Are there any school/s running following this model of teaching?
3. Do we need special permission to run this kind of schools?
4. Can we affiliate after 8th standard to any board (the board doesn't matters).

I have been struggle with the answers. Hope I get some guidance over here. Thanks
