Indore : Underprivileged students will continue to stand in line for admission under Right to Education Act (RTE) till September, while other students would have completed a major part of their syllabus for the first semester exams. This delay is a result of automated system, which government had decided to install in December, but did not complete installation till June.
Discussing the same matter with disability programs consultant (DPC) Akshay Rathore, Indore Parent Association (IPA) coordinator Anurodh Jain said, “Over 600 schools are out of affiliation and most of them are waiting for the last date of RTE admissions to pass, before reapplying.”
He explained that since, school’s affiliation has expired; they are not liable to give admissions to RTE students. “But it’s a tricky situation, as even after RTE admissions close, schools can apply for affiliation and continue to function legally,” Jain said.
Rathore considered the memorandum and assured IPA that he would be bringing up the matter with additional chief secretary (school education) SR Mohanty.
