MUMBAI: Technical glitches marred the online admission form process for Right to Education (RTE) seats on Friday morning, first day of submission of the forms.
Parents, who tried to log on to the website in the morning, could see only three help centres although the BMC has set up over 26 such centres.
“Over 100 parents came to our office to fill up forms but help centres available on the website were in south Mumbai. People from Andheri, Dharavi, Goregaon cannot go all the way to verify documents,” said K Narayan, secretary of Anudanit Shiksha Bachao Samiti. “It’s a repeat of last year’s poor show.”
However, civic education officials said that the website was functional by afternoon. “There were technical problems in the morning but they were rectified and parents could fill up forms. By the end of the day, almost 35 forms were filled and most schools had completed registrations too,” said an official.
Online application will be open up to March 18.
