The education department has taken out the final list in which it has been clear that only 65% of the seats have been reserved from 1017 private, unaided schools under Right to Education (RTE) admission this year. The numbers are far behind of the seats registered for admission last year. The list also suggested that the number of schools registered for RTE admission has also gone significantly down this year as last year it was about 2500 private schools from Indore.
This year only 210 schools from Indore Urban-2 and 169 from Indore Urban-1 have been given recognition for the admission under RTE by the education department. 236 schools from Indore rural, 144 from Depalpur, 118 from Mhow and 140 from Sanwer have also got the recognition by the department this year. Due to various reasons, 301 schools from the recognized ones couldn’t lock the seats under RTE admissions this year. The RTE admission online procedure would begin from 23 June and continue till 30 June, 2016. The students would be selected on the basis of lottery drawn, the first of which would be held on 7 July, 2016.
According to Zila Panchayat CEO Varadmurti Mishra, “Now when the schools have declared the seats reserved under RTE, parents can apply for a school which falls in 3 km radius from their house. Parenst can select the school they want to apply in and approach the school, nodal officers or BRC’s for online application of their child along with valid documents.”
Schools are bound to keep 25% of their seats for RTE admissions for the entry level classes. The first phase of admission has got delayed and thus the education department is trying to rush the admissions in order to reprimand the lost time from the session.
