State promises to bring new law in budget session
PTI | February 11, 2010
In order to check mushrooming of coaching institutes, Bihar government will bring a law to regulate their functioning, making it the first state to do so.
The decision comes against the backdrop of violent protests against "truant" coaching centres which claimed the life of a student here on Tuesday.
"Earlier there was a move to make a policy but now we will frame a law to prevent exploitation of students," Human Resource Development (HRD) Principal Secretary Anjani Kumar Singh said.
Students went on the rampage here against the management of coaching institutes for "cheating" them by not not completing the courses within a stipulated time-frame.
The proposed legislation would provide for registration of all such institutes and strict monitoring of quality of education, fee structure and strength of the students.
