Many RTE quota seats left vacant in private schools of Pune

The recent visit to the city private schools by the Pune Municipal Corporation (PMC) School board has highlighted another failure story of the implementation of Right to Education (RTE) Act.

Of the 7,361 seats reserved for economically and socially weaker sections as per the RTE Act in 2009, the city has managed to fill only 2,998 seats till date despite the city having 306 civic and 380 private schools.

One of the major reasons could be lack of approach by the parents to claim the seats. In case of any school denying admission to a student, the officials from the PMC stated they would give a letter directing the concerned school to comply and admit the student. This will be done provided the said student meets the necessary criteria and if the quota is not filled by the school, added the sources from the PMC.

Another reason for the vacant seats would be the guideline of RTE which directs schools to admit children at the pre-primary level. However, many parents are willing for admissions into Class I. In addition, it is mandatory for the parents to submit income certificate and the caste certificate along with the application forms. With most parents failing to provide the necessary documents, the admissions were denied for some children.

Of the 380 private schools, only 64 have filled 25% quota. The PMC has received only 10 applications seeking admissions to private schools so far.
