A spelling bee is a competition in which contestants are asked to spell a broad selection of words, usually with a varying degree of difficulty. The "Classmate Spell Bee" competition has been conducted for 5 seasons and all over India. This year their aim is to conduct India's largest school spelling competition.
When the news about the "Classmate Spell Bee" competition- Season 6 came about, The State Convener of Tamil Nadu People's Forum for Tobacco Control (TNPFTC) sent out a letter to the State School Education Department referring to the G.O. 242 and highlighting the point that through the competition ITC is promoting its name and is on its way to fulfil its mission by covering most of the schools in India.
The State School Education Department has thus issued the letter banning all Educational Institutions from participating in "Classmate Spell Bee" competition in reference to the G.O.- 242
