To take RTE fee, pvt schools need to give record of online class: Govt

Bikaner: It will no longer be easy for private school operators to get the fee of children studying for free under the Right to Education Act (RTE) from the government. 

Now, only those schools will be paid, who have taught these children online during the Corona period. If they failed to do so then the government will not pay the fees.  

Recently, the Supreme Court had ordered the RTE payment of the session 2020-21 to the Education Department. 

The Directorate of Secondary Education has issued an order in which private schools are asked to put information on the government portal about when and what type of online classes they conducted. 

What were the children taught during this time and how many attended? After all this information, if the department is satisfied, then private school will be paid for year 2020-21.

The private schools will have to upload information on the portal before May 15. Earlier, the department officials used to physically verify information, but this time it will be online.

In Rajasthan, eight lakh children study in about 37,000 schools across the state under RTE.

The department will also be making random calls to parents to verify the authenticity of online classes.
