Karnataka | Govt plans to bring BPL family kids under RTE

Bengaluru: Minister for primary and secondary education Kimmane Ratnakar on Saturday said the department is contemplating extending the ambit of Right To Education to include all children from BPL families on priority.

The government also intends to start Lower Kinder Garten (LKG) in government schools across the state, the minister said.

Speaking to reporters at Congress Bhavan, Ratnakar said the decision to extend RTE quota to BPL card-holders was taken due to lack of transparency in issuing income certificates.
