Those who need greater clarity on the modalities of the Right to Education Act can now hope for help through a helpline and cells specially opened at State and district levels to coordinate implementation of the legislation.

While a centralised helpline number — 1800-425-34567 — will soon be accessible, specific numbers for all districts will also be announced.

According to Education Department officials, there will be one State-level cell at the Sarva Shiksha Abhiyan office in Bangalore, which will issue guidelines and coordinate implementation of the Act.

Cells will also be opened in districts.
