Eyecatchers-155:Couple with Rs.30 lakhs pay seek free schooling!

The RTE Act provides Quota in private schools for children belonging to disadvantaged groups and weaker sections.  A case has come to light where a couple with annual income of Rs.30 lakhs tried to claim free education for their child in Rajaji Vidyashram of Bharathiya Vidya Bhavan.  Obviously, the school refused and the matter went to Chennai High Court.  The court refused to accept the contention of the couple, saying that if that is accepted it will do violence to the object of the RTE Act.
