Education For Children Up To 18 Years Will Be Free! On The Suggestion Of Congress MP, The Government Said – Will Talk To The States


Terming as good the suggestion of amending the Right to Education (RTI) Act, 2009 to provide free education to children up to the age of 18 years, the government on Monday said that the matter will have to be discussed with the states. And the central government will fulfill its full responsibility.

 Union Education Minister Dharmendra Pradhan said this in reply to a supplementary question by Congress member Manish Tewari in Lok Sabha. 

Tiwari said that the 2009 Act provides for free education to children in the age group of 6 to 14 years, in such a situation, when many children reach the 9th standard, schools ask them for fees and they face problems.

In response, Pradhan said that there are not enough provisions in the RTE Act, which was brought during the then Congress-led UPA government in 2009, which has been accepted by Congress MP Tiwari, it is a welcome thing. He said that children face problems after 8th under this law, I also accept it. 

Pradhan said that this is a state subject and some private schools provide free education to children in classes 9 to 12. The minister said that this suggestion is good and today this concern has come to the fore. 

Taking a jibe at the Congress, he also said that it could have been thought of even while enacting a law in 2009. Pradhan said that he said that he would have to discuss with the states to amend the law to provide free education to children up to the age of 18 years. The Government of India will fulfill its responsibility.
