RTE admissions: private schools get HC relief

The Federation of School Associations of Maharashtra has said that private unaided schools have received an interim relief from the Bombay High Court to not grant admissions for 25% of seats under the Right to Education (RTE). The Aurangabad Bench, acting on the Independent English School Association’s plea, said no coercive action could be taken against schools for not admitting students under the RTE till the next hearing on February 28. The federation has now urged schools to accept admissions only if they had received reimbursements of their fees from the State, convener Bharat Malik said.
