The RTE Students and Parents’ Association has asked the school education department to extend the last dates of admissions for reserved seats under the Right to Education Act by another 15 days. February 19 is the last date for submitting applications.
Speaking with the Deccan Herald on Monday, B N Yoganand, general secretary of the association, said: “A number of parents have applied for income certificates but they are yet to receive it. Also for the first week, the servers were very slow. As a result, not many applications were processed,” he said. He also said that a few block education officers did not display the complete list of seats leading to confusion and delay.
Members of the association submitted a request in this regard at the offices of Department of Public Instruction (DPI) and the Ministry of Primary and Secondary Education, on Monday.
