After regulating fees in schools across the state, the government now has a fresh agenda- bringing in a law to monitor coaching classes. According to the Maharashtra Coaching Classes Owners’ Association (MCCOA), there are about 50,000 private coaching institutes in the state. If the government has its way, they will soon have to abide by the state’s diktat that will regulate the number of students they can take in and the fees they charge, apart from a host of other criteria. School education minister Radhakrishna Vikhe-Patil said he would invite coaching class associations for a discussion next week, before the legislation.
