The Intention of the Government is laudable and if becomes honestly effective, it will ensure a great future for India, because education is the only positive alternative to none other for the buding generation to go with the trend as well to compete the global developmental processes. Many inherent drawbacks in Indian society as a whole, especially cultural, beliefs, economy and lack of understanding, threw back the progress of Indians about 50 years back and inspite of considerably appreciable improvement in this sector within such a short period after independence, India still lacks the tempo and thrust a developing country is supposed to have comparing the achievements the European countries and States gained, though they are very much dependent on the brain powers from Indian professionals for which their economic conditions play a major part. Politics were one of a major villians for the drawbacks hitherto as the poor segments are kept uneducated as an undeterent catalyst to ca ...more

Dear Sridhar,
READ THIS PARAGRAPH TO UNDEERSTAND THE EFFECTIVENESS OF ANY LAW ::
Do you know, that even after a glorious 60 years has gone by with the legislation of banning child labour, and we have not been able to make headway in enforcing it? The main reason is not that law abiding citizens are not there, but it is because of financial disparity which drives the children, with due permission of their parents, to indulge in labour of any kind. Successive govt have been very insensitive in dealing the challenges of child labour. I think, we are all aware that people get children just to help them earn a living, more hands more work, more money for house thinking kind of mentality. The govt. should have considered their socio- economic challenges first rather than to enforce a law, where children are not taken care of by law enforcement agencies, who find them and rescues them from clutches of so called offenders and again leave them to fend for themselves. Tell me, how it can solve ...more

Many may not realise the signifiacnce of this bill unless we read in the history books of the future.We took 60 years to enforce such a law and the face of India would have been different had it been in place immediately after independence.It is better late than never.We have a law that shows the determination of one billion plus people in this new century.The law has very good features and what we need is a determination among states and the center to make it successful.The law brings a certain degree of social accountability for the private schools to cater to the needs of poor students too while making profit through education.This, in a way helps bring more qualitative education within the reach of the poor too even though it is only for a certain percentage.
I feel that it can revolutionize India without doubt and it is going to an effective one too provided the cost factor is responsibly shared by the states and the center.

Like any bill. Some bills are taken care of seriously, while some are flouted by the people and authority

Everyone had right to seek education and become talent. I have right to climb on mountain to touch Everest, but I cannot, because I am too weak to climb even a ten feet high tree. Reality of villages is that the children cannot afford going to schools where fees are not charged. Because most of the children are engaged in earning money, farming or doing what their parent desires to run the livelihood of family. Even in towns you will find many children doing job in hotels, shops, factories, offices and elsewhere.



Even if hundred percent seats are reserved for them they cannot dream of education. Government has been claiming to have all primary schools providing free education with free mid day meals. But unfortunately in such schools there is neither quality education, nor good environment or hygienic food. There is share of money among school staff and parent of children so far as free meal is concerned. These schools are liked by none. Even middle class family cannot afford t ...more
