66000 Students Gets Admissions Via RTE
It is a great result from RTE Act. Among 66,306 students out of 209 lakh students from the economically and socially weaker sections have received admissions into 8,500 Private schools in the State Maharashtra, under the 25% reservation seats provided under the RTE (Right To Education) Act.


About 5,440 students were given admission to private schools under this provision in Pune district. According to the RTE Act, all private schools other than this provision in Pune district. According to the RTE Act, all private schools other than unaided minority schools will have to enroll 25% students from the economically and socially weaker sections, in Standard 1 or the entry level.

The State Directorate of Primary and Secondary Education reported that not a single parent complained to the directorate against any school for not admitting their ward in Private Schools. As per the report, In Pune District, 1188 students were admitted in 317 private schools in the jurisdiction of the Zilla Parishad, whereas 3008 students took admission in 380 private schools within the city limits and 1244 students took admission in 180 private schools in Pimpri Chinchwad.

In the month of May, the government had sent a notification to all schools in the state in order to reserve 25% seats in the school for economically weaker and backward class students. The deadline for completing admissions under this provision of the RTE Act was June 30. The government collected reports from each of its regions and prepared a report on the data received.

The report stated that all the students who approached the schools for admissions had been admitted. However, the percentage is low because the notification and the government resolution was issued in the month of May, when the admission process was already over.

Most of the students had taken admission by then, as many schools completed their admission procedure in the month of January and February. Well, this is a positive approach made by the state government of Maharashtra.
