The admission process of private schools in Indore is underway under the Right to Education (RTE) quota. Started on 23rd June, this process will continue till 30th June and the final seat allocation will be declared on July 7.
Under this RTE act, the right to education for all has been illustrated and also there is a reservation of 25% seats for students who belong weaker sections of the society. Thus, making a great opportunity for students to take education from private schools where fees are very high as compared to government schools.
Earlier, this admission process has been reported undergone through a wrong process. This year, for the transparency, the government decided to make the application process online. To aid this process, National Informatics Centre (NIC) has tied up with school education department to provide RTE admission portal.
For the convenience of those parents who are not comfortable with the online process, they can fill the downloaded form manually and submit to the nearest school and Block Resource Coordinator.
This year the number of registered schools under RTE has come down. Last year around 2500 schools registered under this Act. It has been reported that many schools didn’t register under RTE due to specific reasons. Also, it seems that the number of seats will also go down this year as last year only around 23% seats got filled while previous year more school participated.
The reason for this low number is assumed as a lack of awareness in rural areas. In rural areas, people are not aware of the law. Also, in urban areas people prefer to send their ward to CBSE affiliated schools over state board affiliated school.
