RTI Act on no of Students in Private Schools?



  • I want to get information of the number of students in each class of the private schools. I see some Q&A says if the private schools having aid from Government then they are applicable under RTI. My question is how to get the information of the schools who are having Govt aid?


  • RTI Experts

    Yes.

    You could obtain such information from the Department of Education of the concerned state.

    The Department of Education being a public authority falls under the ambit of RTI Act and is responsible for maintaining and handling all information and details regarding the functioning of educational institutions falling under its jurisdiction. Under section 2 (f) of the RTI Act, you could obtain certified copies of the relevant documents and records.
