Nagpur state board schools report 98% vacant free seats under RTE quota

With the closure of admission process for free quota seats under RTE (Right to Education) on July 5, 2012 in Nagpur, about 98% of the seats available in state board schools were left vacant. Sources from education department revealed that the city has about 450 private unaided state board schools (English medium) to which 25% free RTE quota seats were applicable and total intake capacity is 11,000. About 634 applications were received by the schools of which only 272 admissions were made till last date.

The rest of the applications are under consideration due to lack of essential documents to be submitted. The department also declared that the admission process will remain open till all the vacant seats under RTE quota are filled. The earlier deadline of July 5, 2012 was only the first round to get the process started in schools. The CBSE (Central Board of Secondary Education) and other board schools are yet to submit the final figures for the total admissions to the local education office; however, the sources expect the overall percentage to remain same.

The schools of Nagpur had decided to follow a ‘common plan’ under which the admissions for the free 25% RTE quota seats were reopened.

The city has been repeatedly appraised for being a pioneer in implementing the RTE quota. Despite of having only 2.5% admissions against the free RTE quota seats, Nagpur is still called the leader. This shows how poorly other states have been performing in implementing RTE.

CBSE school principals of the state called a special meeting on July 6, 2012 to discuss the implementation of RTE in detail. Till now no CBSE school has submitted the details of number of applications received and admissions made against the free seats under RTE to the education office.

Also South Point School received the first certificate of recognition (CR) on July 5, 2012 as made compulsory by RTE. Sources from the school revealed that all schools irrespective of their affiliated boards must apply for a CR and get it renewed yearly. As per RTE, schools can lose their recognition and charged a fine of Rs. 1 lakh along with an additional amount of Rs 10,000 daily for not having a CR.

Royal Gondwana and Bhavan's Group of Schools are the only CBSE schools which have applied for CR till now. The last date to apply for CR was June 30, 2012. Now the deadline has been extended to July 31, 2012 and after that strict action will be taken against the defaulters.
