New Delhi: The formation of a central nodal agency has been recommended in order to keep a check on the agencies that facilitate admission to schools and colleges in India and abroad.
The recommendation was given by the research institute ‘The Bureau of Police Research and Development (BPRD)’ to the central Home Ministry, in order to stop the discrepancies in the admission processes.
Some of the recommendations include setting up committees in the states to keep an eye on the agencies. The information gathered in the district level should be handed over to the central agency. Meanwhile, the centre should keep the details of the agencies and the coaching centres.
Besides the nodal officers, there should be career counsellors and psychologists in the state committees. They should guide the students to choose appropriate institutes for higher studies and help them stay away from mental stress.
The BPRD, in its recommendations said that the committees should be given the power to conduct inspections in the agencies where discrepancies have been found and to submit reports to the police.
