The Gujarat High Court has directed the State government to ensure that the schools affiliated to the State Board implement 25 per cent reservation for poor children.
The court has asked the schools to implement the above order under the Right to Education (RTE) Act. The schools have been asked to begin the implementation from the next academic year.
The court also asked the Government to take action against the schools which will found violating the norms. The court also instructed the government to take up the cases of children left out from the admission process under the scheme.
