RTE quota: Child can apply for admission only in three schools

To streamline the admission process for the 25 per cent reservation quota under the Right to Education Act, the State government has restricted the number of schools a child can apply for admission to three.

According to the Commissioner for Public Instruction, Mohammed Mohsin, the number has been limited to three to make sure there was no confusion or duplication in the seat allotment.

This year, the government has also given an option for filling applications online. However, parents can also go for the offline mode if they are not comfortable with or do not have access to online applications.

The Department of Public Instruction on Wednesday put up on its website the schedule for the RTE admissions for the academic year 2015-16. As per the schedule, the updated list of neighbourhood schools (uploaded on the official website of the department www.schooleducation.kar.ni.in), will be thrown open to the public for objections on December 3.

November 21 was the last date for the block education officers (BEOs) to upload the verified list of schools in their respective zones on the department website. The last date for receiving objections is December 6. The publication of the final list will be on December 10.

The block education officers will announce the number of seats available on January 1, 2015. Parents can start submitting applications from January 13 to February 14 next year. The documents will be verified from January 16 to February 16.

The list of eligible candidates for admission will be put up on the website on February 19.
The list of allotted seats (through online lottery) will be done on February 28.
An additional selection list will be hosted on March 7 and the admission process will commence from March 10.

The block education officers and local officials have also been directed to take active interest in collecting documents for admissions for orphans, HIV-affected children, children from migrant labourer families and the differently-abled students.

They have been asked to take responsibility for getting them attested documents as these children would not be in a position to procure these documents without assistance.
