School admission before January is illegal

Government has issued a circular to all the private schools and parents, stating that giving admissions for the academic year 2014-15 before January is totally illegal.

According to the circular "It is hereby brought to the notice of the general public and parents that admissions if any made by the schools, before the notification of the calender of events by the department, such admissions will become illegal and are automatically liable for cancellation. The department will not recognise such admissions. Therefore, the parents and general public are hereby cautioned that they do not get into such unnecessary trouble."

No admissions till January


According to the department of public instructions, the process of admission for academic year 2014-15 will begin from January 2014.

The circular further added "It has come to our notice that certain private schools in Bangalore and other places have already begun the process of admission for the year 2014-15 and inviting application online or otherwise, from children and parents seeking admission to such schools. This action of the schools amounts to clear violation of the provisions of the RTE Act and rules by such schools. Further certain schools are adopting screening procedure for admissions of children and collecting capitation fee from parents in contravention of section 13 of the Act."

Going by the rules, schools need to notify the block education concerned the number of seats available under the Right To Information Act.
