The second round of the lottery process for allotment of seats in private schools under the Right to Education Act was initiated on Monday. A total of 1,10,625 applicants are taking part in the lottery and the number of seats available in this round is 40,990. Initiating the process, Commissioner of Public Instruction Sowjanya said that 5,000 new applications were received in the state for the second round. Applicants who did not get a seat in the first round were allowed to change their preference of schools in their ward.

Admit kids to class I under RTE, high court tells school 18.5.2017 deccanherald.com
The vacation bench of the High Court of Karnataka on Thursday directed National Hill View Public School, Bengaluru, to admit 24 children to class I under the RTE Act. The school had refused admission to the children under the RTE Act. According to the school website, Energy Minister D K Shivakumar is the chairperson of the school. Six-year-old Prateeksha K Gowda and 23 other children have moved the court seeking direction to the school to admit them to class I as per the allotment made by the Primary and Secondary Education department. The petitioners said they belong to the economically weaker sections and disadvantaged groups of the society. They are aggrieved that though the government had allotted them seats under the quota of the RTE Act, the school not only refused to admit them, but also prevented their entry into the school. The counsel representing the petitioners said the school had sought time to scrutinise the caste certificates of the petitioners and the income certificates of their parents. ...

City's parents to join RTE protest in Pune 18.5.2017 DNA: Mumbai
Hundreds of parents from Mumbai are set to join the state-wide agitation for poor implementation of the Right to Education (RTE) Act in Pune, on May 20. This year, despite a high enrollment rate, 37 per cent of the seats reserved under the RTE quota in city schools are lying vacant. Several parents, whose children failed to secure a seat in any of the city schools under the RTE quota, largely owing to technical glitches in the admission process, are left in the lurch, due to a lack of redressal to their complaints. They are now joining the movement for a more accountable and transparent system of RTE admissions. "Several children had to bear the brunt of the corporation's apathy in fixing existing issues in the admission procedure. While several students did not get any allotment letter, several others were allotted schools far away from their homes due to a decimal error in the admission software," said Sudhir Paranjape, an activist from the Anudanit Shiksha Bachao Samiti. Several NGOs across the state ...
