May 5, 2023

The Right to Education (RTE) Act, which aims to provide free and compulsory education to all children aged 6 to 14 years, has seen a significant increase in its implementation in Gujarat. In the first round of admissions under the RTE Act, 54,000 students have been admitted to various schools in the state.

The RTE Act was enacted in 2009 and is aimed at ensuring that every child has access to quality education. Under the act, private schools are required to reserve 25% of their seats for children from economically weaker sections (EWS) and socially disadvantaged backgrounds.

The first round of RTE admissions for the academic year 2023-24 began on April 16 and ended on April 30. During this period, parents of eligible children were required to apply for admission to private schools. The admissions were conducted online, and the results were announced on May 4.

According to the Gujarat Education Department, a total of 1.06 lakh applications were received for admission under the RTE Act in the first round. Out of these, 54,000 students were admitted to various schools across the state. The department has also stated that the remaining 52,000 seats will be filled in the second round of admissions, which will begin soon.

The department has expressed satisfaction with the response to the first round of admissions and has stated that it is committed to ensuring that every child in the state has access to quality education. The department has also stated that it is working closely with private schools to ensure that they comply with the RTE Act and reserve the required number of seats for EWS and disadvantaged children.

The RTE Act has been a significant step towards ensuring that every child in the country has access to quality education. The act has helped bridge the gap between the privileged and underprivileged sections of society and has provided an opportunity for children from disadvantaged backgrounds to receive a quality education.

The successful implementation of the RTE Act in Gujarat is a positive development and reflects the state’s commitment to ensuring that every child has access to quality education. The state’s efforts in this regard must be lauded, and it is hoped that other states will follow suit and take similar steps towards ensuring that every child in the country receives a quality education.

In conclusion, the first round of admissions under the RTE Act in Gujarat has seen the admission of 54,000 students to various schools in the state. The successful implementation of the act is a significant step towards ensuring that every child has access to quality education. The Gujarat Education Department’s efforts in this regard must be commended, and it is hoped that other states will follow suit and take similar steps towards ensuring that every child in the country receives a quality education.
