764 RTE applications found faulty in Mandya, face rejection

Last date to submit the rectified applications is today by noon

Even as the new academic year is round the  corner, discussion on Right To Education (RTE) Act, has gained momentum.

The department of Public Instruction has completed the application process for admission to LKG and class 1, across the State.

In Mandya district, the number of seats available for LKG under RTE is 2,588 and till now, the department has received 3,151 applications. But, 764 applications have been rejected as they have errors. If the applicants fail to rectify the errors immediately and re-submit it, the number of applications might come down, indirectly benefiting private institutions.

While some taluks in the district have received applications less than the seats available, some have received applications in excess of the available seats.

The reason for the decrease in applications is said to be the failure to provide necessary documents, and importantly, the applications have to be submitted online, which has kept many at bay.

However, with the RTE application process completed, in all, the district has received 3,151 applications. Out of this, 986 applications were faulty. While 218 applications have been rectified and re-submitted, errors are yet to be set right in 764 applications.

In Maddur, for 156 seats available for LKG 118 applications have been received.
Similarly, Mandya North has 93 seats but has received 85 applications. Nagamangala taluk has 61 seats, but has received 68 applications.

First standard

No seats are available for first standard under RTE in Malavalli taluk. But, 13 people have applied. Nagamangala has 204 seats for first standard but has received only 95 applications.

Similarly, KR Pet has 144 seats but has received 126 applications. Mandya North has five seats while it has received seven applications. Srirangapatna has 196 seats but has received 206 applications.

As a few taluks have received lesser number of applications than the seats available, it is sure to benefit private institutions.

Moreover, if the applicants fail to rectify the cited errors in the applications and re-submit it, the seats will go to the institutions.

Last date

The last date to submit the rectified applications is May 6, before 12 noon. As the applications are submitted online, the officials will not know, which application has errors. The details can be known by the parents only, through computer centres or they can check it at the office of the respective Block Education Officer.

Speaking to Deccan Herald, Nodal Officer Chandrakanth said, the applications were usually rejected due to duplication, spelling errors, or inaccuracy in caste and income certificates.

The department had given time to the parents to make changes. But only a few applicants have exercised this option. The parents can rectify and re-submit it before 12 noon on May 6, he added.
