A body should be formed to regulate coaching institutes, Rajasthan Governor Kalyan Singh has said expressing concern over a spate of suicides by students in the city of Kota dotted by several training academies.

The parents of the students preparing for entrance tests should also reduce pressure on them, he said.

“A body should be there to regulate coaching institutes. The body should also decide the admission procedure to these institutes and direct them to reduce the pressure on students,” Singh told reporters in Kota on Thursday.
