Hello Mr.CM, despite your directive Schools are denying admissions under RTE

Nagpur: Despite Your (Chief minister) strict directions, many schools are still refusing admissions under 25 percent reservation under Right to Education(RTE) Act. You had taken a tough stance on schools, which are refusing admissions and had warned of show cause notice to about 290 schools.

However, on Tuesday, in your own City, when applicants turned up to the schools that they have been allotted were again given vague replies. Some of the schools again raised entry level point and refused admissions.

Even after getting the allotment in schools in the online RTE draw, the applicants are made to run from pillar to post to get their allotted seat.Many prominent schools have refused to give admissions to these allottees. Some schools are refusing admission citing ‘ Entry point’ factor and many other schools are asking money under various heads.

You have directed the education department to take strict action against schools not following the RTE guidelines and refusing admissions.

On the basis of the your direction, many applicants again approached the schools for admissions . However, they had to return disappointed. The government has directed admissions in Nursery, KG as well as Class 1.

According to sources , many prominent schools are saying that their management will decide whom to give admissions.

Request from parents, start a Complain Number were in such we (parents) can send their grievance directly to your office directly and even a video as proof , as a Parent you can understand that with fear of our wards getting punished directly or indirectly we  are not willing to come forward and disclose our identity but if you take an initiative than we might come forward.

Nagpur Today on behalf of many helpless parents.
