A total of 3,701 vacant seats are up for grab for the fourth round of admissions under the Right to Education (RTE) Act in the city private schools.
As per the officials at the education department of Brihanmumbai Municipal Corporation (BMC), fewer students are showing interest in admissions this year, even after seats being allotted to them.
In the previous rounds (till third round), 11,000 plus students had registered while only 3,408 students had confirmed seats, revealed the officials at the department.
Sudhir Paranjape, a city-based RTE activist feel, "If both the body intends to fill the vacant seats, it will happen.
The entire administration has failed to conduct RTE admissions for the last two years."
