Hello All, Can I ask for the details of a private school (a school that is not funded by any state or central govt. agency but has recognition awarded by the state education dept.) - details such as how much fee is collected from each student, how many teachers does the school employ and what are their salaries etc by writing an RTI application to the state education department? Rgds, Suresh
Recently a primary school has come up in our locality in NOIDA which is causing a big nuisance. It is not understood that how can DEO give permission to the school to run in a group housing society. Definnately some rules have been flouted. Please advice what all questions to ask in RTI.
Dear Members, I would like to know if there is any data available (if yes how many students) on enrollment of 'migrant children' under RTE in Delhi. Second, what is the percentage enrollment of children (eligible vs enrolled) in Delhi schools. Whom should I send my application to, please suggest. Thanks in advance, Yogesh
Atul Patankar posted a topic in RTI in MediaAs reported by Neelam Pandey at hindustantimes.com on February 14, 2011 MCD’s education department has received several complaints alleging that a number of schools are not admitting students from the economically weaker sections (EWS), saying the seats are full. There are 757 schools recognised by the Municipal Corporation of Delhi (MCD) -— a number of which are violating the RTI guidelines, which makes it mandatory for schools to reserve 25% of its seats for children belonging to the EWS. The civic agency has now asked its education department to inspect these schools, and initiate action, including derecognition, against those found guilty. “Several parents met me personally complaining that a number of schools have not been giving admission to their children. Some of these are posh schools in south Delhi that have got land from the DDA at cheap prices but are not fulfilling the RTI guidelines. We will be taking strict action against them,” said Mahender Nagpal, chairman of MCD's education committee. “We have already sent two notices to schools asking them to give us details of the students that they have admitted under the EWS category. A survey will be carried out after February 15, which is the last date for admitting students from EWS. We will prosecute the authorities found guilty,” Nagpal said.
Despite the introduction of online system by DoE there is a huge gulf between the target and the achievement. The major flaws are: 1. The students seeking ADMISSION/SLC/TC have to wait for the hours or even weeks. 2. The names are repeatedly written manually every time acquaintance roll or exmination result is prepared. 3. The salaries are prepared yet manually, when there are varieties of softwares available. Since most of work is done by the teachers, so the students have to bear the loss.
Atul Patankar posted a topic in RTI in MediaAs reported by Ashutosh Shukla at dnaindia.com on April 16, 2010 Mumbai: Want information from your kid’s school and frustrated with the stonewalling tactics of the school administration? Well, help may be round the corner. The state’s information commission has asked the education department to direct all aided schools — there are 1,300 — to keep all information related to their functioning handy. Schools have to produce this information on demand from parents. All details have to be with the school head or the public information officer, according to the recommendations of Suresh Joshi, Maharashtra’s chief information commissioner, to the state government. “What happens is that either the trust sends the parent to the school saying they don’t have the information or vice-versa,” said Joshi. “Ultimately the parent does not get any information.” A few months ago, Joshi had instructed colleges to do the same. The schools will also have to make public information about the public information officer, and the first appellate authority. This is one of the several recommendations made by the commission to the state government in its annual report for the calendar year 2009. It was submitted on Thursday. Most of the other recommendations, however, are repetitions, except for the one asking the chief secretary to appoint officers to keep a tab on penalty deducted from the erring employees’ salary. Emphasis on section 4 (voluntary disclosure by public authority) featured amongst the prominent ones followed by the appointment of senior officers as the first appellate authority. Overall, the implementation of the Right to Information Act (RTI) shows significant improvement. Pendency is down by 3,000 to 13,000. “We can now safely say that pendency in Mumbai, Konkan and Nagpur regions can be taken up within two months,” said Joshi. The state received 4.40 lakh applications in 2009 as compared to 4.16 lakh in 2008 and 3.16 lakh in 2007. Of the total 36 departments, the top 10 accounted for 82% of applications. “The forest department has moved to the seventh position from 10th. The irrigation department has made an entry, which shows that tribals are using the act in a big way,” said Joshi. The Brihanmumbai Municipal Corporation alone got 59,018 applications, approximately 60% of pleas received by all 22 corporations. There was also a jump in the amount recovered as penalty from information officers. Though the total fine amount slumped in 2009 to Rs26.56 lakh (collected from 347 officers) as compared to Rs34 lakh in 2009 (from 256 officers), in Mumbai, the fine amount increased. The city saw collection increase to Rs3.74 lakh with 58 officers being fined as compared to Rs2.4 lakh a year before. The percentage of total applications moving up to the FAA and commission remained constant. Of total applications, 10% — 43,848 — went for first appeal and of those 50% —18,205— at the second appeal. The year’s disposal rate at the second appellate authority improved considerably with a jump of 9,000. Complaints, however, jumped by 1,000. “These would not really speak of any trend because people file complaints for various reasons,” added Joshi.

Atul Patankar posted a topic in RTI in MediaAs reported at ptinews.com on 03 Mar 2010 New Delhi, Mar 3 (PTI) The Central Information Commission has issued a show cause notice to deputy director of the Education Department for not providing information to the applicant about implementation of quota for economically weaker section in Modern School here. Information Commissioner Shailesh Gandhi while issuing a stringent order said the Deputy Director did not obey orders of his senior officer to provide information to an RTI applicant which "raises reasonable doubt that the denial of information may also be malafide". The case relates to an RTI applicant Sunita who sought to know several information about Modern School. In her application she asked if the school was on government land and if economically weaker section quota is implemented while giving admission. When no information was received, she approached the higher authorities in the department with her first appeal. Source: fullstory
