>Dear Friend,
> Please find enclosed hereto copies of the third version of Free
>and Compulsory Education Bill, 2004 dated 08.01.2004 and a report of State
>Level Consultative Meeting held in Kolkata on 28.02.2004 to discuss this
> We are in the process of preparing an alternative draft of Free
>and Compulsory Education Bill, 2004 and therefore, we would request you to
>send your comments on the third version of Education Bill to us as early as
>possible. The alternative draft of the bill will be made available to all
>the concerned people for generating public debate and opinion.We are
>thinking of holding a National Consultative Meeting at New Delhi sometimes
>in May or June this year to finalise the alternative draft Bill. We have
>got your support in the past and we hope to have your support now also to
>take the matter to its logical end.
> We have found that the third version of the Bill is the outcome of
>peoples' outcry against the earlier drafts of the Bills. Some important
>things like inclusion of 0-6 age group in some form have now been done and
>some important deletions like distance education have been made. On
>cursory reading of the third version of Bill, it appears that the
>provisions made are totally inadequate and several drastic deletions,
>modification, additions etc. are still warranted. We also suggest you to
>hold meetings at State and Districts levels etc. with different groups and
> sections of people to discuss the Bill and communicate to us the outcome
>thereof. We also request you to send to us other relevant material
>appearing in newspapers, journals including notes and articles having been
>written by the concerned people. We further request to send us your
>suggestions and comments freely. This would be the first Central
>Legislation on education in the country and therefore, we all have to do
>our best to see that a good law is legislated.
