The Students Islamic Organisation (SIO) has appealed to parents and students belonging to economically weaker sections to avail themselves of the benefit of free admission to private schools under the Right to Education (RTE) Act for the next academic year. In a press statement issued here on Sunday, SIO said the 25 per cent of the seats in preschool or class 1 in the private schools is reserved for poor sections. The SIO would be conducting street corner meetings throughout the district to create awareness among the people to take full benefit of the facility. The applications forms were available with the SIO. For details, call 8904882690. — Special Correspondent
