By: M.S.Yatnatti: Editor and Video Journalist Bengaluru: It is alleged that The New Generation School (code 29200139516) declined the admission of RTE allotted student for the student Application No.090371, which has been allotted to New Generation School. MUMTHAZ AHMED KHAN national president of ALL INDIA UNIVERSITIES PARTNERS, AFFILIATED COLLEGES AND STUDY CENTER ASSOCIATION (AIUPASA) has demanded Commissioner of Public Instruction to Issue directions to block educational officers and relevant schools of particular ward and jurisdiction has declined admissions and behaved very rudely with the parents. He says his association AIUPASA has received several complaints from the parents stating that the schools are denying to take the admissions of RTE students in particular New Generation School , Basavanagudi has declined admissions and behaved very rudely with one of the parent and similarly several parents has given the complaint about New Generation School, Basavanagudi, Bangalore and the management of NGS is not taking any responsibility making every parent to run from pillar to post . It is a clear discrimination of Right to Education to Free and Compulsory education Act 2009.
The Right to Education will be accorded the same legal status as the right to life as provided by Article 21A of the Indian Constitution. This entitles children to have the right to education to enforced as a fundamental right. To implement RTE a lot has been done and but still a lot has been left to be done. AIUPASA NGO has received several hundred compliant from parents and Guardians of students in respect of RTE bungling against department of public instructions and in particular BEOs appointed by Government of Karnataka, for refusing to allot seats under RTE Act 2009. Parents and Guardians of students are facing several barriers and problems in filling and submitting RTE forms online as before launch of online platform no training was given to all stake holders. Facility has become problematic and it is neither feasible nor affordable. RTE is for poor people do not have computer literacy. Department of public instructions should have provided free uploading facility by at various select locations by select agencies.
Reportedly few School expects money? Schools and department of public instructions troubles parents to go from pillar to post and cancels the allotted seats for silly reasons. Reportedly to allot seats the running bribe rate is from 5000 to 50000 apart from that to scrutinize application for final approval the reportedly BEO panel seeks 10000/- and then school turn they ask 25000/- for books and cloths department of public instruction inform parents to take care of extra curriculum activities, and pay fees for swimming, karate, sports if they needed their children to become national or international players RTE fees is not covered in schools, it's a clear discrimination. It has been requested to issue direction to BEO and schools to obey the rules and regulation as per the RTE Act 2009. In view of this AIUPASA will hold a peaceful protest.
"There are numerous problems that eligible parents face while taking admissions under RTE . Unlimited corruption reported in education department in RTE admissions says MUMTHAZ AHMED KHAN national president of ALL INDIA UNIVERSITIES PARTNERS, AFFILIATED COLLEGES AND STUDY CENTER ASSOCIATION (AIUPASA) . Despite seats are allotted few schools are declining seats under RTE.AIUPASA PresidentMumtaz AhmadKhan have demanded Commissioner of Public Instruction to follow the RTE Act in letter and spirit and resolve the problems of poor's faced at Bangalore schools . He demanded as per the Act, a school can admit students who live within 1km from it at the primary-level under RTE, while it's 3km for higher primary and 5km for higher secondary. But the government had not done the mapping, instead applied the ward limits for RTE .Let Government do the mapping for each school and a school can admit students who live within 1km from it at the primary-level under RTE. Each should have different distance and different map need to be applied for each and this will create logic and it as per Act.
