HC Quashes Circular Issued By CEO Imposing Ban On Teaching Activities By Masters/Lecturers


Jammu, Apr 01: High Court says that the impugned circular issued by Chief Education Officer Kishtwar is beyond the scope and ambit of the Right of Children to Free and Compulsory Education of 2009 particularly Section 28 thereof and therefore, cannot be applied to Govt, whereby all the DDOs/Controlling Officers working in District Kishtwar have been called upon to issue strict instructions to all the teaching officials (Lecturers/ Masters/Teachers) working under their control not to indulge in private practices of giving luxury education at private coaching institutions.

The High Court held that the circular would have its applicability only to the Govt. Schools imparting elementary education i.e. Schools upto 8th Standard and to that extent the circular has been upheld.
