Nagpur: A meeting of Verification Committee URC 1 for 25% reservation for economically weaker section under Right to Education (RTE) Act was held on Saturday. The meeting was attended among others by Vijay kakode, Education Extension Officer Jyotsana Harde and RTE Action Committee Chairman Shahid Sharif.
In the meeting, parents raised various issues regarding RTE admissions including residence proof, date of birth and income. The meeting decided to give some time to those parents who do not possess all the necessary documents. But the admissions will not be cancelled for want of some of the documents. The Verification Committee will resolve shortcomings in the admission forms submitted by parents. There is great demand for admissions under URC 2 as majority of good schools come under this category.
In the lottery system for RTE admissions, 5699 students have been selected. The students who have been selected will have to submit necessary documents in two sets to the RTE Verification Committee. After verifying the documents, those documents with shortcomings will be separated. Documents in order will be updated and admissions will be provided to the selected students. The Verification Committee has received 118 forms under URC 2 and 80-90 forms under URC 1. In all over 25,000 applications for RTE admissions were received. Forms of those selected have been forwarded to Verification Committee.
