BANGALORE: The Right of Children to Free and Compulsory Education (RTE) Act 2009 marks a historic moment for our country’s children. Kapil Sibal, being the key initiator of this Act, has opened pathways for students of SC/ST to achieve their dreams, through education.

It is now mandatory for all the under privileged children aged between 6 and 14 years to receive free education. Bangalore Central Youth Congress, led by president K C Prabhakar Reddy, acknowledges and appreciates this initiative extended by the Supreme Court. The schools, which have already catered to the student enrolments, without adhering to the provisions of the Act, have to now incorporate the same and re-start the admission process. One of the members of the Bangalore Central Youth Congress said that the names of students, who get this facility, should be mentioned on the school notice board, to make clear the recipients of this.
