Schools Fail To Meet Registration Deadline
Parents of students eligible for the 25% quota in private schools under the Right of Children to Free and Compulsory Education (RTE) Act can expect a delayed admission process this year too.
The RTE Act, 2009, mandates reservation of 25% seats for students from economically weaker sections.
The deadline for registration of schools eligible for these admissions has been extended by a couple of days as the school managements failed to register online by the last date of February 3.
For the past two years, the regional directorate of education, which conducts RTE admissions in Pune region, has failed to meet the admission deadlines. Consequently, the school allotment rounds were conducted till August, two months after the start of the academic year.
