Tripura High Court bans private tuitions

By NewsGram Staff Writer

On Friday, the Tripura High Court has banned private tuition by teachers of government and government-aided schools, evoking a strong opposition by the pupils’ guardians.

“The high court in May took up a suo moto case against the rampant private tuition by government, non-government, semi-government and private schools teachers. After a long hearing and taking the views of the state government, the high court almost completely banned the private tuition in the state,” an official of the state school education department said.

School and Higher Education Minister Tapan Chakraborty said the state government had banned private tuition by government school teachers in 2011.

“But a large number of teachers do not follow the government orders. A section of guardians also pressurised government school teachers to take private tuitions. The state government favours the High Court decision,” the minister told reporters.

Also, a group of students of the secondary and higher secondary level and a large number of guardians held public meetings, rallies and staged demonstration here. They also met senior education department officials to resolve the issue.

A division bench comprising of Chief Justice Deepak Gupta and Justice Utpalendu Bikash Saha in a judgment on Thursday also banned private tuitions by private school teachers to students of their own school.
