Maharashtra RTE Admission Age Criteria
First of all, it is very important to know if your child has reached the appropriate cut off age for admission. The Maharashtra Government had issued a resolution in 2015 stating that a child must be six years of age while seeking admission in Class I. Thus a child must complete three years of age when applying for admission in the nursery. The cutoff date was first issued as of July 31 and later pushed to September 30. This essentially means that your child must have completed three years as on September 30 if applying for nursery admissions. [How to Apply in Maharashtra RTE Online for 25% Reserved Seats?]
