New Delhi, Jan 18: The central government has issued guidelines for states to oversee and regulate coaching centres. 

The guidelines for regulation of coaching centres suggest that coaching centres are prohibited from admitting students below the age of 16, and enrollment is permitted only after successful completion of the secondary school examination.

The guidelines also suggest that coaching centres should not make misleading promises or guarantee ranks to parents and students. 

Tutors with qualifications less than graduation should not be allowed to teach in coaching institutes either, the guidelines propose.

“The number of unregulated private coaching centres in the country continues to grow in the absence of any laid down policy or regulation. Instances of such centres charging exorbitant fees from students, undue stress on students resulting in students committing suicides, loss of precious lives due to fire and other accidents, and many other malpractices being adopted by these centres are widely reported in the media,” the document said.

The guidelines suggested penalising coaching centres for charging exorbitant fees from students, causing undue stress leading to student suicide and other malpractices up to 1 lakh or cancellation of registration.

Registration of coaching centres has been made mandatory.

Conditions of Registration: 

(i) No coaching center shall -  (a) engage tutors having qualification less than graduation. 

(b) make misleading promises or guarantee of rank or good marks to parents/students for enrolling them in the coaching center. 

(c) enroll student below 16 years of age or the student enrolment should be only after secondary school examination. 

(d) publish or cause to be published or take part in the publication of any misleading advertisement relating to any claim, directly or indirectly, of quality of coaching or the facilities offered therein or the result procured by such coaching center or the student who attended such class. 

(e) be registered, if it has less than minimum space requirement per student. 

(f) hire the services of any tutor or person who has been convicted for any offence involving moral turpitude. 

(g) be registered unless it has counselling system as per the requirement of this guidelines.
