Mumbai |891 kids get RTE seats in third lottery

Mumbai: A total of 891 children from poor families were allotted seats in private schools under the Right to Education Act, in the third online lottery on Wednesday. They have got seats at the entry level in unaided non-minority schools across the city.

According to the BMC education department, the students have been allotted 1,008 seats, with some of them being given the choice of more than one school. Parents must approach the schools by September 5 to confirm the admission.

 As many as 105 RTE seats in some non-state board schools in the city are still vacant as the schools have been turning away students for various reasons. “If schools refuse admission to students despite having right documents, the parents can approach BMC or the school education department,” said Nisar Khan, education inspector, BMC.
In the first and second lotteries conducted in April and July, 2,423 students secured admission in various schools.
