Applications for admission under RTE released

Bangalore, May 9, 2012, DHNS :

The Department of Public Instructions (DPI) on Wednesday uploaded the forms for parents who wish to seek admission for their children under the Right to Education Act (RTE). The forms can be accessed online on www.schooleducation.kar.nic.in.

However, the reservation appears to have been officially created from class one, though most unaided private schools begin admissions from pre-school.

Till late Wednesday night, there was no clarity on whether pre-schools are included under the Act or if it is only from class one for this academic year.

It is said that the department has already issued orders to deputy commissioners to circulate the available forms at the offices of the block education officers in their jurisdiction.

Apart from the basic details of the child, the parents will have to mention their income, caste and other necessary details in the lengthy 11-page form. The form is also available on the website of the department.

It is learnt that the DPI, along with the Sarva Shiksha Abhiyan, has now set up a centralised helpline to answer queries on RTE.

The number is likely to be functional in a few days, said officials from the department.

Along with this, a Government Order has also been issued to the deputy commissioners of each district to provide a dedicated local number for the RTE queries.

Deputy commissioners have also been asked to make a list of the total number of unaided private schools and aided private schools to ascertain the total number of seats available under the 25 per cent quota.

The helpline number for RTE queries that will soon be functional is: 1800-4253-4567
