On one hand the UT Administration has put a ban on coaching institutes from giving classes to students during the school hours, putting the students in dilemma over whether they should go to school or just do self-study sitting at home. As a matter of fact, the trend for dummy admissions is most prevalent especially in Punjab, Haryana and nearby areas and Chandigarh has become a hub for coaching centres. Amid this, the schools have become less efficient in providing quality education to students, especially the students of XI and XII who are preparing for various competitive exams.

While the Administration put a ban on coaching institutes with effect from July 1 to August 29, the students are facing difficulty. Most of the students think that the coaching classes are more important than regular classes in schools, while others are of the opinion that the schools should have a mechanism where students can be trained for entrance tests too.

Due to the lack of efficiency in schools to impart secondary education to students, the results have been highly affected. The situation has come as a dilemma for both parents and students as Schools don’t prepare them for the competitive exams, so coaching classes are the only option they are left with to crack competitive exams.
