In Haryana, RTE is being implemented with all sincerity under the guidance of the Chief Minister, Mr Bhupinder Singh Hooda. School children are being given free text books, school uniforms and scholarships from class one. As a result, the attendance of school children in different classes has increased.
Various issues like shortage of funds, parity in the standard of teachers and different views on CCA and no detention came up in the meeting. It was cleared that no detention does not mean no evaluation. It was also suggested that there should be common competency  test at the level of classes III,V and VIII.
Principal Secretary of School Education, Haryana Mrs Surina Rajan spoke about the implementation of RTE Act in Haryana.
