Admn cracks whip on coaching centres
Srinagar, Dec 30: District administration Srinagar Thursday cracked whip on some tuition centres in Srinagar in a bid to streamline their functioning.
While sources said some tuition centres were raided at Karan Nagar and Parraypora, the deputy commissioner, Srinagar, Meraj Ahmad Kakroo, admitted having made a surprise inspection of a tuition centre in Karan Nagar run by Prof Bashir Ahmad, who teaches Chemistry at a degree college in south Kashmir.
“I had got a complaint against the coaching centre and I visited there. I found that Prof Bashir teaches 200 students in a room and is not providing them heating arrangements. In the past few years, the professor, who teaches at Degree College Anantnag, must have earned Rs 4 crores but has not given a single penny as income tax,” Kakroo told Greater Kashmir. “We have asked the professor not to do coaching during duty hours. We don’t want to harass anyone, but there are some guidelines which they need to follow.”
Pertinently, the state government has already directed the coaching centres to fall in line and provide requisite facilities to students as per the government order No: 435-Edu of 2010 dated: 30-04-2010 wherein it has been made mandatory that all private coaching centres should be registered. “The provision has been made under law to make it necessary for these coaching centres to notify the fee subject-wise and depute well educated staff for imparting the education. The order also binds the private coaching institutions to strengthen their coaching centres with adequate heating and cooling facilities as per the weather and keep proper education-oriented infrastructure and display the registration certificate indicating all formalities available for the general information of the people,” an official handout said Wednesday.
