NCPCR proposes committee to study impact of exemptions to minority schools under RTE Act

Excellent news. Though it is still a bit of a pie in the sky, once the exemption evaporates so will all the laws. I can't see the Catholic Church tolerate RTE like interference with their institutions. It is no secret that the top Catholic schools and Anglo Indian schools have a student body which primarily draws from the marwaris, business community and the better educated classes and the % of Chrisitians seldom exceeds 5% in such schools. So the whole exemption was always on very shaky grounds and primarily to stay away from the ire of peskly NGO workers.
