Self-financing schools urged the concerned authorities at the Centre and State to take steps to reimburse the expenditure incurred by them by way of providing free education to downtrodden children under the Right to Education (RTE) Act. The Self-financing Nursery and Primary Schools Association passed a resolution in this regard at its meeting held here on Wednesday. “We have not been paid the expenditure incurred by way of providing free education under the act for 2012-13 and 2013-14 academic years,” S Subbaiyya, founder of the association told reporters. He noted that the cumulative amount due to schools could be about `4 crore. He urged the authorities to take steps to reimburse the amount.
