SRINAGAR A large number of private tuition centres are being run in the state without registration.
While as the state administration has ordered the registration of the coaching centres across the valley, the institutions have once again started fleecing students.
Most of the coaching centres in the city of Srinagar are functioning illegally taking students and parents for a ride.
Srinagar city has witnessed the mushrooming growth of private tuition centres. The education department has only registered 150 coaching centres.
Officials sources said more than 217 coaching centres had submitted their undertakings with the education department for the registration, but the Permission was not granted to all.
The permission is to be granted on the basis of proper inspections conducted by a team of officials as per the direction of High Court, sources said.
The issue of coaching centres was highlighted after the JK High Court on February 3 in 2015 directed Divisional Commissioner Kashmir to close all coaching centres in valley given their failure to file an undertaking within three days in compliance to its directions issued on December 30 in 2013.
