Poor response to admissions under Right to Education (RTE) Act has forced the education department to extend the deadline of third round of admission by one more week. The actual deadline had ended on Thursday but education department has now asked the parents to
complete the formalities required and secure admission by July 24. Several seats in private schools reserved for poor children remained vacant despite the completion of third round of admissions under Right to Education (RTE) Act.
On Thursday, the final day of third round of admission process, 757 seats were left vacant. In the third round, 434 out of 1191 students confirmed their admission. Considering this, the deadline was extended till July 24.
Meanwhile, the decision to extend deadline has irked the parents who was waiting for their turn. They have raised question on the motive of education department to provide more time to parents who are not interested in admitting their wards under RTE. It is worth to mention here that 26040 students had applied for admission under RTE.
In the first draw 5799 students were allocated schools but a few took admission, following which the deadline was extended several times. The second round too failed to get good response and now in third round too just 434 students have taken admission.
