The education department has asked the students not to fill forms at tuition classes and net café. The move came in a bid to curb the interference of coaching institutes in admission process to junior colleges in the city after The Live Nagpur exposed the malpractices of coaching centres in the first part of its campaign against the wrongdoing of such institutes. Education department swung into action after the news and has now taken a step to tighten the noose over coaching centres.
Till last year, coaching institutes’ interference in admission process was very common. The admission forms were filled online at coaching and tuition classes, instead of the centres allocated by the State education department. However, this time the education department has strictly asked the students not to fill forms from tuition classes.
A letter has been issued in this regard by chairman of the Centralised Admission Control Committee and deputy director (education) Satish Mendhe. It contains guidelines to be followed while applying for Std XI. The letter has specifically addressed the students of CBSE, ICSE and other State boards, who take more help from the coaching centres while applying for the admission. These students have been asked to visit the centres appointed for the purpose and fill the form online.
A detailed area-wise list of the centres in north, south, east and west Nagpur has been published by the education department as well. A website link has been provided by the board for more guidelines to the students.
The letter stated, students may visit http//:nagpur.11thadmission.net to get details about the admission procedure. For the Maharashtra State Board of Secondary and Higher Secondary Education students, the education department has made a provision to
fill the form online at affiliated schools. A move that cuts the link between student and coaching centres.
