UNFAIR TO EXCLUDE UNAIDED MINORITY SCHOOLS FROM RTE ACT, 2009
It is unfair to exclude unaided minority schools from the application of the provisions of Right of Children to Free Education Act, 2009. There is no justification for treating this category of schools different than that of unaided non minority schools. It is submitted that the Hon'ble Supreme Court cannot be blamed for the same as it is duty bound to interpret the law as it is. However, the responsibility now goes to the Central Government to bring back unaided minority schools within the purview of RTE Act, 2009 by amending Articles 30 and 15(5) of the Constitution of India.
