Students who desired to get admission through Right to Education (RTE) online admission process might have to wait for some more time as it is delayed because of a conflict between some schools and state government.
It is to be noted that the admissions under RTE are conducted through a lottery system by BMC, and the second phase of the lottery is still 15 days away.
The schools which are in conflict with the State government want to admit children under RTE quota to pre-primary classes, but the state government wants admissions to take place from the first standard.
Now, the matter is in the Bombay High Court and BMC has been asked to disclose how many children are yet to get admissions in schools, and how many schools have vacant seats under 25 per cent quota.
K Narayan, Secretary, Anudanit Shikshan Bachao Samiti met the Deputy Director of School Education to demand that the department should take action against those schools which has refused admissions to students under RTE.
