Raipur: The Chhattisgarh government on Wednesday
brought into force a rule which prohibits failing a student
throughout the primary school years.

The state government notified rules under Right to
Education Act, which also ban capitation fees for admission to
pre-primary or primary schools.

No child will be detained in a class until standard
fifth.

The rules also say that no primary school teacher would
be allowed to give private tuitions.

The person/institute found to be taking capitation fees
in any form would be fined as much as 10 times the amount
taken.
