Uttar Pradesh’s basic education department is going to perform a physical verification of students who got admitted to private schools in 75 districts all over the state under the Right to Education Act (RTE). Vijay Kiran Anand, Director General, School education, UP, in a letter to each Shiksha Adhikari (BSAs) stated- a total of 3,41,305 students were enrolled till the last academic session. A proposal demanding Rs 340 crores as a fee as compensation had been received by his office.
Under the Right to education (RTE) Act 2009, physically verifying students was crucial to know if they are actually studying in non-aided recognised private schools. A team of district levels and development block officials will conduct the verification process so that the existing number of beneficiaries under the above-mentioned scheme can be complied with according to the school. The officers of block education are mandated to get details verified by the school principals by July 15, 2022.
Verification of these certificates/letters received from the school should be completed by July 30, 2022, under the district magistrate’s supervision.
Anil Agarwal, President, of Unaided Private Schools Association (UPSA) said that “The state government is welcome to do physical verification of students who were given admission under RTE. We have given admission to selected genuine students on the basis of applications revived by the basic education department”.
” This year, we have not given any admission under RTE till we receive our fee compensation for the admission given to students of economically weaker sections,” he further added.
“It’s high time the state government reimbursed the fees for poor students given admission under RTE.
Beneficiary students complied data should be sent by August 5 through email at firstname.lastname@example.org. According to the Association of Private schools, the administration was not paying listening to the problems faced by the private schools in Uttar Pradesh because of the numerous requirements of the Right to Education (RTE) Act 2009.
