The process of the admissions to LKG and Class1 have started in Karnataka schools. The procedures are online and the Aadhar number has been made mandatory to eliminate any risk of duplication in the application process. The child must have an Aadhar card or should have a valid Aadhar enrollment number in order to apply under RTE. The government has also decided to give preference to children of farmers who have committed suicide.

The Sarva Shiksha Abhiyan (SSA), Karnataka has also made Aadhar number compulsory for children applying for RTE quota seats. The registration for RTE admissions will not be completed without the Aadhar number or Aadhar enrollment number. The inclusion of Aadhar number will simplify the process of verification. 

The application process is expected to begin today for 1.3 lakh seats for LKG and class I students at private-aided schools. Currently the official website of Department of Public Instruction (DPI) for school education in Karnataka hosts the trial link for application process.

Justice S Sujatha passed an order in a petition filed by eight children, all six-year-olds.

The petitioners were allotted seats in Venkatesh Education Society (MVJ International School) located in Marathahalli, but the school happens to be a minority institution that is exempted from allotting 25% of their seats under the RTE Act. The judge directed BEO to allot them seats in another neighbourhood school without any lottery process as they have already been allotted seats through the lottery system.

Bengaluru, dhns: A CBSE school in the city, run by energy minister D K Shiva Kumar, has now agreed to give seats in Class I, under the Right to Education Act quota, to underprivileged children.                                                The school in Rajarajeshwari Nagar was supposed to give seats in two entry points - Class I and LKG.

Shiva Kumar, who is the chairman of the school, had refused to give admission to students who had been allotted seats in Class I through lottery process, and admitted students only to LKG. Parents, whose children had been allotted seats in the school, had protested in front of the premises earlier this month.

After holding several discussions with the management, the Block Education Officer said that now the school has agreed to give admission to 40 children in Class I.                                                                                                   The school has two units in the same locality and will now admit 28 students in one unit and 12 students in the other.

While the academic year for schools in the city has begun, three schools have come under the radar of the education department for various issues and have been slapped with criminal cases in the Kumaraswamy Police Station limits.

Firdose International School in Sarakki, IQRA Public School and Rani Mother Mary School in Illyas Nagar have slapped with an FIR by the Block Education Officer who made surprise visits to these schools recently. A senior official who is handling this case in the station said, "These schools violated many rules and regulations. All three were running without licences."

The police officer added, "The schools had permission to run batches from nursery to Standard 2, but they took in students till 4th standard without the education department's permission. These schools claim they had applied for permission and it was rejected by the department as they did not meet certain criteria required for admission."

Surprisingly, the education department which is busy hunting down schools that are violating its diktats is making sure the schools follow every single rule in their rule book.

"These schools have been booked under the Karnataka Education Act, 1983, the Right of Children to Free and Compulsory Education Act of 2009 and IPC 418 and IPC 420. We have got this complaint from the BEO and we have issued a notice to the schools to come back with whatever documents they have, so we can compile a report and submit it to the education department," said the official. Since the schools have begun their classes across the city, a few are still rushing up with their admissions. The police officer said, "We have stopped all admissions for these schools this year and we are taking necessary steps to shift these students to other schools immediately."

Speaking to Bangalore Mirror, N Venkatesh, Block Education Officer, South division 1, said, "These schools did not have permission to run any kind of educational activity. They were cheating parents with their own pricing. They had sent a request earlier for legitimacy, and we had rejected it on grounds of our policies and rules. Still they continue to function. That is the reason we gave a complaint in the police station and asked the school to immediately shut down."

"In all this, students should not become victims. Hence, we have formed a committee to look into alternative measures. We are admitting these students to nearby schools and we have also informed the parents about this," he added.

These surprise visits in the city will continue for a few more days, he said.
