Exempted from RTE Act,JNVs to hold screening tests next month

The Jawahar Navodaya Vidyalayas (JNVs) will conduct the screening examinations for Class VI from July 10

The Jawahar Navodaya Vidyalayas (JNVs) will conduct the screening examinations for Class VI from July 10,after having delayed the exams for almost six months while they secured an exemption from the Right of Children to Free and Compulsory Education that prohibits screening tests for admission to schools.

“Because of this confusion,we have already delayed our examinations. We are under the specified category,and hence exempt from the mandate of the Act,” an official said,adding that Kendriya Vidyalayas and the Sainik Schools also fall under this category.

The Navodaya Vidyalaya Samiti had last year written to the government,seeking a clarification on the RTE Act and its status. The screening examinations were due to be held in February,but had to be postponed till the government clarified its stance on exemption under RTE Act.
