The Anti-Corruption Commission (ACC) has proposed taking 8 steps in order to put a stop to the ever-growing coaching business.
Pranab Kumar Bhattacharjee, deputy director of the ACC, informed media that the ACC has prepared the recommendations upon a report submitted by its institutional team formed to investigate corruption in the education sector.
“We have forwarded an eight-point recommendation to the authorities concerned including the Cabinet Division to stop the coaching trade across the country,” said Pranab Kumar.
The proposals include conducting investigation into illegal earning of wealth by teachers, cancelling the MCQ question pattern and forming monitoring teams to stop the coaching business.
Mentioning that ACC suggested overall change of the question pattern, the ACC official added that they have also suggested divisional action against the teachers involved in coaching trade ignoring the policy to this end.
The 8-point recommendation forms part of the anti-graft watchdog’s 39-point recommendation sent to the cabinet division to stop corruption and irregularities in the education sector.
The report, with the set of recommendations, was approved by the ACC on Wednesday and forwarded to secretaries of the cabinet division, primary and higher education division, education ministry, chairman of national curriculum and textbook board and education engineering department.
