Under the Right to Education Act (RTE), the schools will have to register from January 23 to February 3 in the online admission process for admission to 25 percent seats reserved for economically weaker sections in private schools in the state. The Directorate of Primary Education has informed that parents can apply after completing this registration process. The list of documents required for admission in this admission process has also been published.
Through the ‘RTE’ admission process, children from economically weaker sections get free admission in nominated private schools. Therefore, parents in the state are waiting for this admission process to start. Accordingly, in this year’s ‘RTE’ admission process, schools will have to register from January 23 to February 3. The responsibility of completing the registration of all the schools in the district will be the responsibility of the Education Officer of the Primary Division.
Only after the registration is completed, the parents can submit the application for the admission of their child. So parents are likely to be able to apply in the last week of February. Meanwhile, if more than 50 per cent of the total students of class I to VIII in the school are admitted through the ‘RTE’ admission process, such schools will not be registered in the admission process. Similarly, new private schools should not be included in the ‘RTE’ admission process for three years. Director of Primary Education Sharad Gosavi has also clarified that only after completing the educational inspection and verification of these schools, they should be included in the process.
Scrutiny of documents
After the application form is filled by the parents, their documents will be scrutinized by a committee constituted under the chairmanship of the Group Education Officer. After this verification is successful, the parents will be able to directly take admission in the school. It has been clarified that there will be no verification of any kind of documents in the school.
These documents are required
– Ration card, driving license, electricity or telephone bill, property tax payment or house rent, Aadhaar card, voter identity card, passport, passbook of nationalized bank etc. can be used for proof of residence.
– Copy of registration with Sub Registrar Office as tenancy agreement is required. The address will be verified by the Education Department. If it is found that the child or parent is not living at the address at this time, legal action will be taken along with canceling the referral.
– Proof of date of birth
– Salary Slip, Tehsildar Certificate, Company Certificate as proof of income
– Proof of caste certificate
– Medical certificate from District Surgeon or Medical Superintendent for disabled children.
