New Delhi: The Supreme Court on Monday said that blaming coaching institutes for rising suicides among students, primarily in Rajasthan’s Kota, was not proper as high expectation of parents is driving children to end their lives
Refusing to entertain a petition that sought regulation of private coaching institutes and a law to prescribe their minimum standards, a bench headed by justice Sanjiv Khanna said, “The problem is of parents and not of coaching institutes.”
Conscious of the fact that nearly 24 suicides have been reported this year in Rajasthan’s Kota district where such institutes offering engineering and medical coaching for school going children have mushroomed, the bench, also comprising justice SVN Bhatti said, “Suicides are not happening because of the coaching institutes. They happen because the children cannot meet the expectations of their parents. The number of deaths could be much higher.”
The Court was hearing a public interest litigation (PIL) filed by a Mumbai-based doctor Aniruddha Narayan Malpani who blamed coaching institutes for driving students to the point of death by using children as “commodity” and working them up for selfish gains.
