Chandigarh to monitor online school admissions from next term


To monitor online admissions, the Chandigarh Department of Education will study the practices and procedures followed by the governments of Maharashtra, Haryana, Punjab and Delhi.

Chandigarh Department of Education will monitor online admissions to all schools in the city from the next academic session to ensure uniformity in the SAP admissions process. This was decided during the 11th meeting of the State Advisory Council, held on Friday under the chairmanship of the Chandigarh Councillor.

The State Advisory Council was constituted in accordance with the provisions of the Right to Education Act (RTE) to advise the government on the implementation of the various provisions of the act.

The admissions process was moved online after the onset of the Covid-19 pandemic in 2020. To monitor online admissions, UT’s Department of Education will study the practices and procedures followed by governments from Maharashtra, Haryana, Punjab and Delhi.

As a certificate of income is required for SAP admissions, the Deputy Commissioner’s office will review and modify the application form to ensure that the benefits are only used by those eligible and that the process becomes more transparent.

Many private schools have complained that the UT Department of Education has not refunded the outstanding amount for the per-child payment allowed by the RTE Act. In this regard, the board said that payments should be expedited and the reimbursement process should be streamlined to ensure transparent settlement of payments.

Also present at the meeting were the UT Secretary of Education, the Deputy Commissioner, the Chairman of the CCPCR, the Director of School Education and the Director of Higher Education.
