The Plan allocation for education has gone up from Rs. 26,800 crore to Rs 31,036 crore and most of it will go to implementation of Right to Education. Going by a ballpark estimate of Rs 172,000 crore that is needed to implement RTE over the next five years, this means that there is a Rs 30,000 crore budgetary allocation in the first year. That is a fairly decent allocation. Let’s also not forget that around 30-35 percent of these funds will have to come from the states.
