Bangalore: Education is the only means for a developing nation like India to develop fully. So, in the year 2009, Right to Education (RTE) Act was implemented to provide free and compulsory education to all the children between 6 to 14 years. This Act mainly aims at achieving 100 percent literacy rate in the entire country and also to make the citizens aware of the benefits of education.

On the contrary, since its existence, RTE still fails to implement the absolute advantage of the Act to the 95.2 percent government schools in India, according to the survey by civil society as reported by Ketki Angre for NDTV news.

The survey on the implementation of RTE was carried out in 780 government schools in 13 states. It has come across that the main facilities and infrastructure were mostly unavailable or in a very poor state.

The survey disclosed that just 4.8 percent of government schools have all the nine facilities provided under this Act. But in 11.41 percent schools, there are eight out of the nine facilities and one third of the schools have only seven facilities provided. Around 30 percent schools have less than five facilities.

Schools with unusable toilets were found in more than a third of the schools surveyed. It is in worst and unhygienic condition not meant for schools children.
