Karnataka exempts minority institutions from RTE
Bangalore: Karnataka Government today decided to exempt religious and linguistic minority institutions from the ambit of the Right to Education (RTE) if they have 75 per cent of strength belonging to these sections.
The state cabinet at its meeting held here took this decision on the basis of a Supreme Court ruling, Minister for Primary and Secondary Education, Vishweshwara Hegde Kageri, told reporters.
To be eligible for exemption, all minority institutions should have at least 75 per cent of their students from the sections, he said.
The government will soon issue an order in this regard, he said, but declined to comment on private educational institutions allegedly refusing to implement RTE.
"It is a separate matter," he said.
