Around 334 private aided schools in the city is under the scanner as they have failed to comply with the norms of the Right To Education (RTE) Act after the expiry of the March 2015 deadline.

While the future of around 1.2 lakh students is under threat, education department officials have maintained that the process to renew the recognition of the schools in question is in process and will be done by 2016.

According to Ramesh Joshi, general secretary of the Brihanmumbai Municipal Corporation (BMC) Teachers Association, who had sought information under the Right to Information (RTI) Act about the number of schools that had not renewed the recognition said that most of the 334 schools had flouted the norms of the Right to Education (RTE) Act and had failed to comply by the March 2015 deadline.

      Replying to an RTI query, ministry’s central public information officer (CPIO) Anand Prakash, also the deputy secretary, informed that he had directed the department of school education to take necessary action on the issues related to MHRD urgently, as directed by Madras HC. He also sent a copy of his reply to Dr Indrajit Khandekar, professor and in-charge of Clinical Forensic Medicine Unit (CFMU) at Mahatma Gandhi Institute of Medical Sciences (MGIMS), Sevagram. 
      In the order, justice N Kirubalan had directed the central government to take a decision to introduce free and compulsory comprehensive sexuality education at the high school level. It should be done to enable students to understand gender identity, sexuality, age-related physical changes and problems, and to protect themselves from sexual advances and abuses. “India has its commitment under United Nations International Conference on Population and Development (ICPD) Agenda 1994, affirming the sexual and reproductive rights (SRRs) of adolescents and young people as per Article 253 of the Constitution of India,” the judge had said.
