Starting with a νμ beam T2K will search for νe appearance in the Far Detector (Super-Kamiokande) and aims to produce the first measurement of the neutrino mixing angle θ13. Beam contamination of νe will be one of the main background components. The Near Detector, ND280, is optimized for measuring the νe contamination through the reconstruction of νe interactions. The reconstructing of electron neutrinos at Near Detector and the method to estimate the νe beam contamination at Super-Kamiokande will be reviewed.
