DSEK forms committee
Srinagar: Director School Education, Muhammad Shafi Rather said a committee headed by Joint Director Elementary schools has been constituted to inspect the tuition centres.
“I held meeting with the tuition centre owners and asked them to apply for registration cum permission. Once they will apply for registration, the committee will inspect the concerned tuition centre and submit its report,” Rather said.
“The tuition centres which have large number of students studying in a single batch will be asked to organize different shifts for the students. For this purpose they will be given 15 days to fulfill all the criteria failing which strict action will be initiated against them,” he said.
Rather however maintained that DSEK has no role in closing down tuition centres. “There are some rumors that DSEK has order closing down of tuition centres which is not true,” he said.
Pertinently, DSEK had earlier issued a missive to tuition centres vide Government Order No 435/Edu of 2010, directing all the private tuition centres to get the registration/permission from the competent authority to continue their operations, failing which appropriate action will be taken against them.
“The application for permission /registration must be accompanied with all the notifications displaying monthly tuition fee charged from students and also the notification displaying particulars of its faculty members including their qualification and experience,” the DSEK order reads.
“The documents related to infrastructure and other facilities i.e. minimum area/space of 9 sq per candidate, separate waiting room, separate drinking water facilities for female candidates, electricity, heating/cooling arrangements in classrooms /waiting halls should in place. If any education agency/tuition centre/coaching center fails to seek permission/registration within the stipulated time, it shall be liable for appropriate action under rules,” it reads.
