The Siksha Ka Haq Abhiyan, a year long campaign, aims to raise public awareness about the Right to Education (RTE) Act, 2009, and mobilize communities to ensure RTE compliant schools.

With a view to harness data to guide effective policy development, analysis and monitoring, from March 2013, these 27 NGOs were tasked to collect data on key indicators relating to the status of RTE implementation in the State.
Data was collected using a 12 page monitoring format from around 40 thousand schools which covered information relating to particulars of the school, environment and attendance, teachers, number of working days and hours, infrastructure, inclusion, equal treatment to all, quality issues and school management. This school wise information, as submitted by the NGOs was further analysed by SDRC and presented as a dashboard to provide users with "ready to use" data for wider dissemination.
