Information on website
“There was a problem in submission of application at the beginning which has been solved now. We have not received any call from parents about the inconvenience. They can apply for the seats off-line also; however they should enter the information online with original documents. Information has been provided in the department website- www.schooleducation.kar.nic.in, under ‘instructions’,” a department staff told Deccan Herald.
For the verification of the applications, sometimes problem occurs during the ‘login’ stage, he added.
