Srinagar: In a bid to discourage Private Coaching Centres from availing the services of Government teachers, masters and lecturers, authorities have constituted multiple teams that will inspect the Coaching Centres and submit a detailed report before the Chief Education Officer Srinagar.
Well placed sources said 12 teams comprising of 25 officers have been constituted for 8 Zones in Srinagar where Private Coaching Centres operate.
Two teams of officers have been constituted respectively for Srinagar (uptown), Batamaloo, Hawal, and Eidgah Zones while separate teams have been constituted and given the right to inspect coaching centres in Zaldagar, Rainawari, Nishat, and Gulab Bagh Zones.
Sources said Chief Education Officer Srinagar has accorded sanction to the constitution of Zonal Level Inspection Committees to inspect the private coaching centres in their respective zones to ascertain the implementation of norms and rules laid down by the government through different directives and circulars.
The Committees shall submit a detailed report within a weeks’ time, individually of each coaching centre clearly specifying that no government teacher, master or lecturer is working in the coaching centres, duly certified by the management of the coaching centre.
Almost all the 25 officers barring one that will inspect these coaching centres are the Principals of Government High and Higher Secondary Schools.
Insiders said the committees have been constituted followed by the complaints that some coaching centres have hired government teachers, masters and lecturers to impart education in their centres. There are also reports that some government employees in league with private persons are managing the affairs of some coaching centres.
“The violators will be taken to task and their registration will be cancelled in case they violate the government norms,” said an official.
In response to a question, the official said that they act swiftly whenever they receive any complaint against any coaching centre. (KNT)
