According to TOI, school education principal secretary Dr Alok Shukla said, "Our Swami Atmanand English medium schools are attracting more students. These schools have received applications almost 40 times the actual number of seats available. Schools are adopting a lottery system to allot seats.”
Schools increase seat intake to fulfill demand
Earlier, following a large number of admission applications, the state government had increased the number of seats in English medium schools to 50 each to fulfill the demands. However, still, the number of applications pouring in are way more than the number of seats available, the government school principal informed.
Talking further about the number of applications received for admission in various government schools of Chhattisgarh, the principal said, RD Tiwari English School has received 2460 applications, Shaheed Smarak English School has received 1779 applications, followed by 1051 applications forms for admission received by BP Pujari School.
This is an indication of how people are preferring government-run Swami Atmanand English Medium Schools over private English Schools for education, he added.
