| Dr Deen Dayal - 02 Jan 2018

The Right to Education Act, 2001, allows the closure of schools where the enrolment is below 20. The state government had conducted a survey to identify those schools where the demand is low.
  More than 1,300 government schools in which less than 10 students are enrolled face closure owing to a lack of demand in their areas, said Maharashtra Education Minister Vinod Tawde. He said the 1,314 schools would only be closed after their students and teachers are transferred to other schools in close vicinity.
