A day after the education minister said that private tuitions have been closed for three months, an association of coaching centres on Monday said that they won’t close the institutions until the government ended the ambiguity surrounding the decision.

Addressing a press conference in Srinagar, the Coaching Centres’ Association of Kashmir (CCAK) said the centres will remain open from tomorrow as “no official order has been issued so far ordering them to close the institutions”.

“There is no clarity which institutions have to be shut,” said general secretary CCAK Latief Masudie, while appealing to the government to end the “ambiguity”.

He said the coaching for the competitive exams started from ninth grade only. “There are national and international level exams which are held in class 9th. Also students start preparing for JEE and NEET exams from class 11th," he said. 

Yesterday, Education Minister Altaf Bukhari said that the coaching centres will be requested to close for 90 days as the government wanted to see how this will affect “class work in the schools.”

The closure order, however, exempted tuition centres for competitive exams like NEET and JEE, and for students who have passed standard 12.
