Coaching Centre operators, admin discuss ''quality education''

Terming the meeting positive CCA said it has decided not to extend the two day general strike earlier called by the body.

In a bid to save career of thousands of students who are in the middle of session, the administration and representatives of various coaching centers Thursday held a meeting hinting a softening in their stands.

The Coaching Centres Association (CCA) has decided not to extend the 2-day strike in their institutions.

The CCA representatives called on Sub District Magistrate Dr Syed Abid Shah who heads the Task Force constituted to check the working of coaching centers.

Terming the meeting positive CCA said it has decided not to extend the two day general strike earlier called by the body. “In the general interest of public we have decided against extending the strike. We will be resuming our normal work,” said G N Var president CCA. “The strike was our last resort but we were always open for talks and our meeting with concerned officials has been positive.” The association said that students won’t be made to suffer for no fault of theirs.

Meanwhile official sources said the meeting was held with “open mind.” “The issue has been lingering on for a while and we have asked them to abide by rules,” official sources said.

The association had asked the government to stop frequent inspections and relax certain norms as it is time of busy session. “They had one major grievance that the raids are happening at a time when students are in the middle of session. Number of competitive examinations are in the offing,” the sources said. “We told them that government is not against the future of students and the session of students won’t be jeopardized. In turn the coaching centres agreed to follow the guidelines even as government secures the interests of students.”

An official said that the guidelines would be implemented in letter and spirit.
