Regulate private tuition centres: survey

Private tuition centres need to be brought under government regulations since such entities are raking in profits by charging exorbitant fee, according to an Assocham survey.

"The regulation has become necessary because private tutors are making money in the name of imparting skills to students and it is a secondary income for them, against which no records are kept and tax evaded," the survey results said.

Assocham said the survey is based on response of 5,000 parents and students spread across cities like Delhi, Mumbai and Chennai.

The survey revealed that tuition fee have shot up considerably at primary and secondary levels.

About 90 per cent of the respondents said that for them private coaching classes come in handy.

The main cause of the increasing demand for tuitions is the high number of students per teacher. The teacher-student ratio is usually 1:50, the survey said.

"That is why a student is compelled to undertake tuitions in order to successfully complete the examination requirement, said majority of students," it said.
