The Kerala State Commission For Protection of Child Rights (KeSCPCR) has launched an online facility to monitor the implementation of the Right To Education (RTE) Act in the state in association with the Department of General Education.
The online facility named ‘Nireekshana’ was officially launched by Social Justice Minister M K Muneer here on Wednesday.
Lauding the efforts of KeSCPCR in instilling a sense of security among children, Muneer said that child marriages should also be brought under the Commission’s monitoring system. He also requested the Education Department to provide aided status to Buds Schools run by panchayats.
 “Section 31 of the RTE Act requires the KeSCPCR to examine and review the safeguards for rights provided under the RTE Act and recommend measures for their effective implementation. The Act also mandates the KeSCPCR to inquire into complaints relating to child’s right to fee and compulsory education,” said KeSCPCR chairperson Neela Gangadharan.
 The online monitoring system has been hosted on the website www.kescpcr.kerala.gov.in and includes three components - an online complaints registration system, an online system to track progress on key monitoring indicators of RTE and an e-forum providing a space for real time chat facility where children can directly ask questions and seek clarifications from the Commission during office hours.
Using the online complaints registration system, users can file complaints online and track their status.
It also offers a platform for KeSCPCR to directly interact with various education officials.
