By: M.S.Yatnatti: Editor and Video Journalist Bengaluru: Department of Public Instruction (DPI) has failed to streamline the process admission using the technology .Every year is the same problem and same story. Despite introducing a slew of measures to "tighten” the verification system, the Department of Public Instruction (DPI) has still not been able to weed out duplicate applications for the Right to Education (RTE) Act quota seats in unaided schools. For the 87,000odd students who lost out on the first online lottery allotment of seats under the 25% Right to Education (RTE) quota, the wait will be longer.Owing to glitches in the admission process of students who were allotted seats in the first round, the department of public instruction said the second round will be delayed by a few days. V Ponnuraj, commissioner of Public Instruction, told reporters that some schools have not yet started the admission process. "We are getting in touch with each school and fast-tracking the process. We will, however, complete the second round before the end of this month," he said.The department has received around 2,74,628 applications after the commencement of the online lottery process. After the first round that was conducted on May 7, out of 1,87,495 eligible applicants, 1,01,345 were allotted seats. The second round that's scheduled to begin on May 22 will be held only for those applicants who were not allotted any seats in the first round."Our plan was to complete the admission process between May 10 and 20 and immediately start the second round. However, many schools had been complaining about not receiving the login details to access the list of allotments and we have to sort it out first," Ponnuraj said. 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.
