#Budget2010 : Right to Education gets a Boost

Published: Feb 26, 2010

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.
