Chhattisgarh has become the first state in the country to provide online funds to private schools.
The state’s education ministry transferred Rs 101 crore worth of tuition fees to various private schools under the Right to Education Act as underprivileged students enrolled under the Act have not been able to pay tuition fees on time during the pandemic.

The Right to Education Act states that all private schools must reserve 35% of seats for underprivileged children aged 6 to 14.
The Chhattisgarh government has transferred the full amount of tuition fee arrears directly to the bank accounts of 4,473 private schools across the state. It is also the first state where more than 50,000 students have enrolled for the upcoming 2021-2022 academic session and where admission funds have been sent online in a systematic manner.
Chhattisgarh school education minister Premsai Singh Tekam said more than 3.5 lakh students have benefited from the Right to Education Act.
