    Thane is a hotbed of illegal schools, the number of which continues to increase every year, reveals an RTI (Right to Information) query. The RTI response revealed that year 2018-19 saw the number of illegal schools rise to 62. Of these 62, the maximum increase was seen in English medium schools — 49 schools compared to last year's 38.

    The RTI response revealed that year 2018-19 saw the number of illegal schools rise to 62. The number of illegal schools for the financial year 2017-18 was 55, as reported by DNA in April this year. And in 2016-17, there were 39 such schools in Thane.

    Of these 62, the maximum increase was seen in English medium schools — 49 schools compared to last year's 38. The number of illegal Hindi medium schools have grown to 10 from last year's eight. On the other hand, the number of illegal Marathi medium schools have declined from seven to three.

    Most of these illegal schools are in Mumbra, Kalwa and Diva. There are over 271 civic, government, aided, unaided and private recognised schools in Thane. And 184 are unaided but recognised private schools in Thane.

    When contacted Manish Joshi, deputy commissioner- education, TMC confirmed that such schools mushroom in Mumbra, Diva. "People want schools at their doorstep, and are least bothered to know whether it is legal or illegal," says Joshi.
