'Right to Education' as prescribed by the Article 21A of the Indian Constitution describes the modalities of the importance of free and compulsory education for children between 6 and 14 in India. "This law was passed in the legislature with the objective of putting a check to the dropouts of school students, especially from the down-trodden section," said Reshmi Rea Sinha, Advocate on Record, Supreme Court of India while addressing the students at a seminar on 'Right to Education and Digital Transformation in Intellectual Property'.
The seminar was organised by IIC in collaboration with the Department of Law. While highlighting the 'Right to Education', Sinha also pointed out why placing this 'right' under Fundamental Rights was a necessity. Another thing that has become a point of discussion after the COVID-19 pandemic is digital education and how it has transformed the education scenario.
The session has been an enriching one for the budding lawyers as the discussion left several areas to think over the fundamental rights and their execution.
