A total of 1,618 students have been allotted 2,192 seats in the second round of lottery under the Right To Education (RTE) Act, as against the more than 4,000 found eligible.

The allotment ratio was skewed because the demand for some schools was higher than the others, while some did not received any application, said an education official from the Brihanmumbai Municipal Corporation (BMC).

In the second round, 1,211 students were allotted seats in state board schools and 407 students in other schools.

Parents were intimated of the results through text messages.
