Delhi is to develop a coaching policy; to identify fee standards, to build facilities

The Government asked institutions with the enrolment of more than 20 students to register with the Directorate of Education (DoE); which noted that private coaching centers operate a parallel education system, and are still out of the sphere of any legislation; and operating without any regulatory enforcement leading to serious hazards to their students.

The government proposes to also collect information on their; infrastructure, land area, basic facilities, fee structure, security standards, etc., from such institutes.

“Private coaching institutes and centers, pre-acceptance coaching by a public authority or private institution; or by a coaching and teaching office on any subject taught in a secondary or secondary school by students for admission to medical and engineering training or other vocational training or pre-exercise coaching in government or private ownership.

“Students from all over India come to the city and seek admission to private coaching centres. They run a parallel education system, are still out of reach and operate without compliance with laws that lead to severe threats for their students, “he added.

Mr. Singh noted that the Government’s attention was drawn to forming guidelines for such private coaching institutions and centres on critical facilities, fees and safety measures, etc. by a tragedy of a fire at a Gujarat’s Coaching Centre, which claimed the lives of 22 students.

“Some incidents involving fraud and cheating by certain private training centres have also been recorded by the government, which remain unattended due to a lack of regulation in this sector. The government is very concerned with protecting the interest or will to enrol in these coaching institutes in Delhi of those students already enrolled.

‘It is therefore felt that the functioning of education delivered by such institutes and centres within Delhi’s jurisdiction needs urgently to be controlled,’ Mr Singh said.

In February of this year, the Delhi Development Authority(DDA) categorised the coaching centres as an educational building for building bylaws (for more than 20 students).

‘This Directorate of Education proposes that the data and information concerning their facilities, land area, core installations, fee structure, security standards, etc. may be collected for the purposes of framing the regulatory policy of private coaching centres.’

‘Therefore, it is aimed at registering more than 20 students with the Directorate of Education and to provide the required information in the specified proforma by 15 October, for the general general public, societies, Trust, agencies, organizations, individuals running private coaching institutes or centers in Delhi.’
