School admission in Noida: RTE law: Only 952 out of 3,717 students were admitted to Gautam Buddh Nagar, 22 schools will be notified
NOIDA: Nearly two dozen private schools in Noida and Greater Noida have been notified of alleged non-compliance with the Right to Education Act (RTE) and refusal to admit economically weaker students, officials said Monday. Up to 6,261 children had applied for benefits under the RTE Act at this meeting in the Gautam Buddh Nagar district, a key law that requires every child aged 6 to 14 to attend free and compulsory education.

Out of the total applicants, 3,717 schools were assigned through an online lottery system, but so far only 952 of those children have received admission, Basic Shiksha Adhikari (BSA) Dhirendra Kumar said, citing parents’ complaint for non-compliance with the law.

The government of Gautam Buddh Nagar has also set up a six-member committee to follow up the matter in their areas by order of the BSA.

This is the second time the Gautam Buddh Nagar District Education Department has notified private schools of the failure to implement the RTE. 58 private schools were notified beforehand, said Kumar.

“On Monday, notices were issued to 22 schools for the second time. Measures will be taken against the schools that do not allow access to children assigned to them under the RTA quota, according to the rules,” he said in the regulation.

A team from the education department also visited two private schools to review the implementation of the RTE law, he added.
