File PhotoThe High Court (HC) has said teachers, who are not engaged with any public and private educational institutes can run coaching classes in the country.
An HC division bench of justices Sheikh Hassan Arif and Razik-Al-Jalil said this while passing observation on its Feb 7 order, which upheld government policy to stop “coaching business” by the teachers of government and private educational institutions.
“Only the people, who are running coaching classes as freelancers or not employed by any public and private educational institutes, can carry out their job as usual,” Anti-Corruption Commission (ACC) counsel Khurshid Alam Khan told newsmen.
I appeared before the court in another case. The court at that time told me that it noticed two talk shows, where I took part in a discussion regarding coaching classes. So the court likes to clear its explanation on coaching class, Khan said.
The same High Court bench passed the order on Feb 7, declaring the government policy formulated in 2012 to stop coaching business at all the government and private educational institutions as valid.
