RTE law comes into force from tomorrow

By The Assam Tribune

NEW DELHI, March 31 (PTI) - A historic law making education a fundamental right of every child will come into force from tomorrow, directly benefiting close to one crore children who do not go to schools at present.

The importance attached to the legislation could be gauged from the fact that Prime Minister Manmohan Singh in an unprecedented move will address the nation tomorrow highlighting the various aspects of the law.

Nearly 92 lakh children, who have either dropped out from schools or have never been to any educational institution, will get elementary education as it will be binding on part of the local and State governments to ensure that all children in the six to 14 years age group get schooling.

The law is coming into force after the Centre and States resolved all issues for its implementation and agreed to share of funds in the ratio of 55-45.
