Private institutions to comply RTE


Primary and Secondary Education Minister Kimmane Rathnakar said on Wednesday that action will be taken by the state government, against the private educational institutions which are unwilling to follow the rules implemented by the Supreme Court's order on the Right to Education Act (RTE).

A severe action will be taken against private institutions which refuse to enroll students from socially and economically weaker sections. "We will not hesitate to file criminal cases against the guilty. There are also reports of parents submitting bogus income certificates to get admission for their children in private schools," he said.

"In the seven months that I have been minister, the Department has appointed 12,000 guest teachers," the minister said assuring that the distribution of uniforms, textbooks and bicycles on the first day of each academic year will be taken care of.

He added that, INR 6,000 crore is planned to be mobilised by the Department to give required infrastructure in all state-run schools.
