BEO told to allot seats to 8 kids under RTE

The High Court of Karnataka on Wednesday directed the block education officer (BEO), Bengaluru South Division, to allot seats to eight children for Class I under Right to Education (RTE) Act quota to another neighbourhood school without insisting them to go through the lottery process again.

Justice S Sujatha passed an order in a petition filed by eight children, all six-year-olds.

The petitioners were allotted seats in Venkatesh Education Society (MVJ International School) located in Marathahalli, but the school happens to be a minority institution that is exempted from allotting 25% of their seats under the RTE Act. The judge directed BEO to allot them seats in another neighbourhood school without any lottery process as they have already been allotted seats through the lottery system.
