Is RTI applicable to private schools as well. My son has been denied admission to LKG in a school at bangalore (Bishop cotton boys school) even though his brother is already studying there. Even though the admission form clearly said that the sibling will get a preference. The principal has refused to meet us and ignored all the letters we wrote/e-mailed to him regarding this. Also, in an attempt to meet the principal we came across his PA and we were told that though the seats are there, we need to pay 3 lakh extra. I want to escalate this issue and want to know on what basis his candidature was rejected. Can RTI help me here?
