Pune: Over 400 schools in Pune and Pimpri Chinchwad have registered online to providing admissions under 25% quota of Right to Education (RTE) Act the academic session 2016-17. Last year, only 240 schools had registered.
The deputy director of education (Pune) will announce the schedule student enrolment this week. Last year, about 13,782 seats were up grabs students from economically weaker sections under the RTE. With more number of schools registering this year, the parents will have more seats to choose from. The Schools can register online till March 31.
The admission process wasgot delayed this year too due to technical glitches school managements faced during registration. Mahavir Mane, director of primary education, said, “It is good to see more schools enrolled. This will give more options to students and their parents.”
In the first week of March, the managements of private English medium schools were told to register online, giving details of available seats and location of school. However, the government website remained dysfunctional throughout last week of admission. Except schools from Nashik, from other districts of the state no other school could complete the task. The process has gathered momentum over the last few days.
