News : Parents to Set Up Helpline for RTE Applicants
Bengaluru, Jan 20, 2015 -- With the admissions for the RTE quota all set to go online from Sunday, parents whose children got RTE quota seats last year, will set up three helpline centres to guide parents who wish to apply for the seats this academic year.
RTE Students and Parents Association chief secretary B.N. Yogananda said: "We urged the Education Department to open helpline centres in all wards and also accept applications at the BangaloreOne, MysoreOne Centres. As we have not heard from the department, we have decided to open helpline centres. We can extend this service to all wards in the city, if the government supports us."
The RTE Helpline centres will function between 10 a.m. to 7 p.m. daily till February 19.
The association has demanded that the list of minority institutions be made public so that schools later do not claim self-styled minority status once the admission process begins.
