NCPCR able to resolve less than 6% complaints under RTE
Information obtained from the National Commission for Protection of Child Rights (NCPCR) through an application filed under the RTI Act has revealed that only 100 of 1,761 complaints made between April 1, 2011 and March 16, 2012 regarding the Right to Education (RTE) have been resolved by NCPCR. During the year 2010-2011, which was the first year of enforcement of Right to Education (RTE), the NCPCR had resolved 692 of the 1,089 cases brought to them. The figures indicate that the resolution of applications has fallen from nearly 54% to just 6%. The figures for Delhi show that 32 of its 61 complaints were resolved in the first year while in the second year, 80 were resolved out of the 517 cases. The large number of unresolved complaints by the National Commission for Protection of Child Rights (NCPCR) raises a question mark over the efficacy of the RTE.
