Parents and guardians stand by private tuitions
Agartala: Recently, the Tripura High Court took up a suo moto case in the perspective of a Public Interest Litigation (PIL) filed for seeking action against private tuitions. The Court observed that according to Section 21 (A) of the Indian Constitution, private tuitions are a hindrance to the given educational rights as well as violation of the quality education imparted in schools according to Section C of the Right to Education Act, 2009.
It also observed that private tuitions are banned according to Section 28 of the Right to Education Act, 2009. It also sought the State Government's reply on continuance of private tuitions at the secondary and higher secondary levels.
Nevertheless, the Court is yet to pronounce its verdict in these points. However, teachers at the aforementioned levels have already stopped holding private tuitions.
This has irked the parents and guardians who are yoking together to move the Court and act as parties to the PIL.
On the other hand, State Education Minister, Tapan Chakraborty said, "Private tuitions have been banned as per a law enacted by the Centre. Hence, it is everyone's duty to adhere to this law."
