The government is planning to freshly implement the 18-year-old AP Tutorial Institutions (Registration and Regulation) Rules. The rules were framed during the Chandrababu Naidu regime, but were never implemented. Under the rules, like schools and colleges, all coaching institutions have to be registered with the government and can run only with government permission. Registration of any coaching centres can be cancelled if the government feels there are technical lapses. The rules also provide for infrastructural facilities that coaching institutions are expected to provide to students. T. Chiranjeevulu, commissioner of school education, said, “We will enumerate all the coaching institutions currently running and issue notices for registrations. Details of all coaching institutions will be put up on a website.”
According to the rules, coaching centres have to provide details of the infrastructural and sanitary facilities. Each student shall have five to seven square feet space while a section or class can have a maximum of 30 students only. Requisite equipment and laboratories should also be provided.
