MHRD hopeful of Educational Tribunals Bill passage in winter session

The Union Ministry of Human Resource Development (MHRD) is planning to push key education Bills in view of the short duration of the Winter Session of the Parliament.
Reportedly, the MHRD would push for the long pending Educational Tribunals Bill, 2010, passed by the Lok Sabha in 2010.

The Educational Tribunal Bill was passed by Lok Sabha in 2010 but has been struck in the Rajya Sabha due to lack of consensus among political parties who had been opposing various provisions in it.

The bill is listed for the ensuing session.
Presently, close to a dozen bills including Prohibition of Unfair Practices in Technical Education Bill and National Accreditation Regulatory Authority of Higher Educations Bill are yet to be cleared.

The bill seeks to set up national and state level tribunals to look into the disputes related to higher educational institutions, students and the faculty.

The Bill specifies guidelines under which unfair practices such as charging capitation fees, demanding donations, questionable admission processes etc could be treated as civil or criminal offences.

“Much of the groundwork has been done to evolve a consensus on the bill with some tweaking. We are optimistic this time around,” said a Ministry official, reported Zee News.
