Condemning the minor pupils rape by her teacher, Coaching Centres Association (CCA) of Kashmir has accused the government of creating a dangerous environment by failing to implement order to regulate the coaching industry.
CCA said it passed a resolution condemning the gruesome incident and demanded an exemplary punishment to be given to the culprit. It termed the incident “collective shame”.
The association also accused the government of creating a dangerous situation by not regulating coaching centres.
Pinpointing the blame on certain officials, the association asked the government to expose the black sheep and punish them accordingly for playing with the career and lives of thousands of students. It has asked the government to take immediate action against the officials who have stalled the registration of genuine coaching centres.
The government had ordered to formally register the coaching centres after the expiry of provisional registration in March 2013. But some officials in the concerned department hijacked the order and stalled the process to benefit themselves. This has kept around 550 coaching centres with around 50,000 students enrolled in them in limbo, CCA stated.
It is pertinent to mention that the government had framed rules vide order No: 435-Edi of 2010 dated April 30, 2010 under the Regulation of Private Tuition Centre Rules, 2010, to regulate the functioning / performance of private tuition centres in the state.
CCA suggested the government to start online registration of the coaching centres to make it easy, hassle free and without involving whole lot of employees of education department.
