6 coaching centres sealed in Islamabad
Islamabad (Anantnag), Jan 8: The district administration in this south Kashmir district has sealed six unregistered coaching centers, which they found to be devoid of basic infrastructure.
The coaching centres were sealed by Police on Tuesday on the directions of district administration. The coaching centres which were sealed are: Osmania Coaching Centre, New Osmania Coaching Centre, Eternal Coaching Centre, Classic Institute of Education, Bright Career institute and Bright Future Coaching Centre.
The administration maintains that not only have the coaching centers been sealed but strict action would also be taken against the government teachers working in these centers. “I personally inspected
the coaching centres and found that the students were made to sit in very shabby conditions and there is no proper infrastructure at their disposal, despite the students being made to pay hefty sums of money,” said Additional Deputy Commissioner (ADC ) Anantnag, Ghulam Ahmad Dar.
He said during the inspection he found that around 250 boys and girls were sitting in a single classroom, like cattle without any chairs, and three fans were operating in this chilly winter.
“None of these 6 coaching centers had even chairs for the students and the matting is so dirty that there is every chance that it will affect the health of these students,” said the ADC.
The ADC said that the rooms were highly suffocated without any proper ventilation.
