The Supreme Court today held that the fundamental Right to Education covers all educational institutions including government controlled, private unaided schools and minority institutions.

A bench comprising Justices S H Kapadia, K S Radhakrishnan and Swatanter Kumar also ruled that the private unaided schools will have to provide 25 per cent seats to the students belonging to the weaker sections of the society since it is the main condition on the basis of which these educational institutions are allotted land at highly concessional rates.

With today's ruling, the highest vote of the country has cleared the entire confusion by ruling that no educational institution in the country is out of the ambit of Right to Education.
