In a significant move, the Maharashtra government has extended the Right to Education (RTE) Act to encompass government and aided schools starting from the academic year 2024-25. This expansion aims to ensure broader access to quality education for all children.

For the academic year 2024-25, a total number of 75,039 schools in Maharashtra have been registered under the RTE Act, resulting in 9,61,668 RTE seats being made available to students. Under the oversight of the School Education Department, the RTE admission process reserves 25% of seats for children from economically and socially weaker sections, implementing recent amendments to the RTE Act.

 Additionally, “All schools, except minority, residential, and partially aided ones, are now registered,” mentioned a spokesperson from the state education department. Registration data collected will be forwarded to the National Informatics Centre (NIC) for further processing before the commencement of the student registration process.

 The State Director of the Primary Education Department, Sharad Gosavi, highlighted the distribution of registered schools, noting, “Pune district leads with 4,986 registered schools offering 74,024 seats, followed by Ahmednagar with 4,052 schools and 51,338 seats. Nashik, ranking third, offers 60,296 seats despite fewer registered schools compared to Ahmednagar.”

This expansion signifies a concerted effort to ensure equitable access to education across Maharashtra, aiming to empower students from all backgrounds.
