Forged papers used in 568 RTE admissions

District Education Officers and District Primary Education Officersacross the state have failed to initiate action against parents of 568 students who had taken admission under the Right to Education (RTE) Act on fake documents.

"We have issued a circular asking all the DEOs and DPEOs to lodge police complaints in these cases. However, despite the circular, no police complaint has been lodged so far by any of the education officials in the districts," a senior education officer said.

Ahmedabad DPEO Mahesh Mehta said: "We are scrutinizing the details and soon will lodge a police complaint." In Ahmedabad, in around 100 cases, documents have been forged.On learning that such a huge number of admissions were taken on forged documents, the state government had asked the District Education Officers and the District Primary Education Officers to initiate action against the 'guilty' parents and even lodge police complaints in the cases.

The District Primary Education Office (DPEO) has instituted an inquiry into a complaint of 'fake poor' taking admission under RTE. Officials said that around 1,450 admissions were under scrutiny of the education department.
