The Indian parliament has passed the Right to Education Act in 2009 which entitles the children from 6-14 years old to at least eight years of schooling. And for this central and state governments shall share financial responsibility. The central government shall prepare estimates of expenditures. State governments will provided a percentage of these costs. The Right to Free and Compulsory Education Act 2009 prohibits direct or indirect fees in elementary schools, banned educational discrimination and assigned the government responsibility for ensuring that all children receive a primary education of adequate quality.
