Collection of PTC fund violates RTE Act

NVS has been blamed for violation of RTE for JNVST(Please refer to the previous posts). But anothor aspect of our system may also be projected as violation of the RTE Act. Parent Teacher Council Fund may also become controversial and result in headache for NVS.It has been a practice in some vidyalays to collect a nominal amount of money in the name of PTC fund and use that amount for Vidyalaya development under the supervision of Parent Teacher Council. Collection of fee in the name of PTC fund may be considered as violation of Section 3(2)of RTE Act which says “no child shall be liable to pay any kind of fee or charges or expenses which may prevent him/her from pursuing and completing the elementary education”.

Let's hope NVS Administration would take stepts to educate the principals on the need for not resorting to collection of funds from parents in the name of PTC fund. Hope it would happen before the media or some out side agency finds fault with us.

  1. A great blog Sir. I myself passed from JNV, Mandaphia (Chittorgarh, Rajasthan) and those were the best days of my life. Your posts remind me of those days and I love to read about how Navodayas are doing.
    Please keep posting. Thanks.
