Legal Framework

·  Article 21A of the Constitution of India gives every Indian child between the age of 6 to 14 years, the fundamental right to education. It states that: 


“The State shall provide free and compulsory education to all children of the age of six to fourteen years in such manner as the State may, by law, determine”.


·  86th Amendment Act, 2002 of the Constitution of India inserted Article 21A and made Right to Education a Fundamental Right.


·  Right of Children to Free and Compulsory Education Act, 2009, was passed by Parliament to enforce the fundamental right to education provided by the Constitution of India. Under this law, every child is guaranteed, the right to admission, education and the right to not be expelled from a school. This Act aims to provide free and compulsory education to children belonging to the weak and disadvantaged sections of the society. The purpose of this Act is to ensure that free and compulsory education is imparted to all children who are within the age group spanning 6-14 years. It also makes a provision that private educational institutions will be required to reserve 25% of their seats for children from weaker sections of the society.
