Under the Maharashtra RTE Admission, 25 per cent sets in private schools are reserved for students belonging to economically backward sections under the Right to Education act. This reservation was implemented by the Maharashtra government to ensure that no child is left behind and education is made affordable for all students in the state, irrespective of financial constraints.
