Coaching centres in Sopore ask for registration papers
Srinagar: The directorate of school education Kashmir (DSEK) has delayed the registration for the coaching centres in apple town Sopore of Baramulla district.
The delay in issuance of the registration in favour of these coaching institutes has hampered the functioning of these centres causing unnecessary inconveniences for the students as well.
“We have completed all requisite formalities for registration of our coaching centres and the inspection teams have also recommended our centres for registration but formal orders are still awaited,” said one of the proprietors of a coaching centre in Sopore.
They said the department has issued extension of the registration in favour of all coaching centres in Baramulla and other districts but the registration of coaching centres in Sopore has been delayed for unknown reasons.
Meanwhile, the move has angered the Coaching Centres Association Kashmir (CCAK) who said the move is indirectly aimed at to discourage functioning of coaching institutes.
“If government is clearing registration of coaching centres in every area why only Sopore has been left out. This is sheer injustice with these centres as they have completed all the formalities and have been recommended by the inspection teams as well,” said Chairman CCAK, G N Var.
As per the department directions, no coaching centre will be allowed to function without having proper registration from the department.
“We have been made scapegoats for none of our fault. If inspection teams have recommended our centres for registration on what grounds it is being delayed,” said owner of another coaching centre in Sopore.
Director School Educatiob Kashmir (DSEK) G N Itoo said the department has cleared all the cases which were recommended by the inspection teams for issuance of registration. “But I will take up the matter with joint director north Kashmir and CEO Baramulla to sort out the matter,” Itoo said.
