Bangalore: Karnataka High Court on Thursday ordered issue of notices to the state government, Chief Secretary and others on a Public Interest Litigation against alleged failure to implement the Right to Education (RTE) Act.

A division bench headed by Chief Justice Vikramajit Sen also ordered notices to the Education Secretary, president and secretary of Karnataka Unaided School Management Association (KUSMA).

In the PIL, Bangalore-based advocate S Vasudeva charged the state government with not implementing the RTE Act, despite the Supreme Court in its April 12 last order upholding it and making it mandatory for all the states to implement it.
The court adjourned further hearing of the matter to August 23.
