These students will be guaranteed free education from class I till they reach the age of 14. The apex court also said that the RTE Act would not apply to boarding schools.

Thanks for sharing the same.


supreme court actually destroys the personal liberty of schools and thus destroying the quality of education by giving this act constitutional validity.

Considering the economic backwardness  of the country, I am of the firm opinion that Supreme Court did the right thing at the right time as a sort of social Engineering.
