Transportation facility is required in rural area mostly due to problems like scattered, hilly, forest preserved, desert and bates covered area. Due to this reason, opening school is not viable due to either neighborhood norms of school opening under RTE Act or less potential number of children be enrolled in urban and million plus city geographical circumstances are so different then the rural. In urban areas problems are like non availability of land, migration, overcrowded population, increasing slum areas at the border side, construction work and traffic. Due to these problems opening new school is not viable and children can’t attend school regularly or drop out form the system due to not stable life of families specially children of slum areas and children of deprived group can’t come to school due to this reason. Need base proposal is being prepared for the needy and children of deprived group for better implementation of RTE Act and regular attendance of children for the completion of elementary cycle.
