BENGALURU: Day one of the RTE admission process for the academic year 2015-16 may have been riddled by technical glitches. But Mohammad Mohsin, Commissioner for Public Instruction, said the department has taken steps to resolve most of the issues.

“There were some problems with the link. We realised that most parents found it difficult to navigate to the correct page within the website ( So we have featured it on our home page now so that they can find it easily,” he said.

He said he himself has been checking the link throughout the day to make sure that if issues crop up, they are resolved without any delay. Most parents had found the digital process cumbersome and preferred the offline mode of submitting applications. But Mohsin maintained that it is preferable that parents go the online route. “Since it is online, everything is transparent. So there are no middlemen involved,” he stated.

He said he has received complaints that some schools are not on the list though they should be there.

“These schools are registered as Kannada medium schools though the medium of instruction they follow is English. Because their names are in the Kannada medium category and parents search for the schools in the English medium category, they appear to be missing.”
