One of the major roadblocks in the development of Primary Education in India is not the scarcity of funds or policies, but the implementation of already existing policies. We compared the level of implementation of three policies MidDay Meal, the requirement of infrastructure, and 25 percent quota for the students from Economically Weaker Sections (EWS), under Right To Education (RTE) Act in two states of India, Kerala, and Uttar Pradesh. Through a survey, we try to find the level of awareness about the these RTE policies amongst the parents in Kanpur, U.P. From the survey, we find out that educated and economically well off parents are comparatively more aware of the policies, and we analyze that participation of the community, especially parents, in the management of school plays a very important role in making the education system more accountable. Main reasons for the poor awareness and participation of the community and parents in the school management through School Management Committees (SMC) under RTE act is the high illiteracy rate in Kanpur, U.P. In a nutshell, we analyzed an overall count of four policies under RTE Act and conducted a survey through which we demonstrated the facts using primary information obtained from the survey.
