As a result, the Government warned that, the schools that will not submit the self-declaration cum application form as required under RTE 2009 shall be de-recognized from the upcoming academic year.

The District Education Officer (DEO) on Tuesday said that "These schools have already missed the first deadline to reach the expectations of RTE. Infact, we had issued a remainder to all the schools in order to submit the declaration before April 15, which is the last deadline".

"According to the RTE Act 2009 Section 18 (a) and 13(1) of Gujarat Rules 2012 required that all granted, non-granted or private primary schools affiliated to any board must get registered. And the recognition certificate is mandatory to run the schools", he added.

He mentioned that in case these schools fail to submit the form before deadline, then they shall not be allowed to conduct admissions o run classes from June as the schools will be automatically de-recognized. Also, the schools will also have to pay up ro Rs. 1 Lakh as one time penalty and Rs. 10,000 extra per day as penalty if they continue running the classes without proper recognition.
