Amidst the troubling rise in student suicides in coaching institutions across Rajasthan, particularly in Kota and Sikar regions, the Rajasthan High Court has taken a decisive step.

The Rajasthan High Court has called on the Attorney General (AG), Nyaya Mitra, and the National Commission for the Protection of Child Rights (NCPCR) to provide concrete recommendations for tackling this grave issue.

AG, Nyaya Mitra, and NCPCR Asked to Provide Recommendations

The move comes after Advocate Gopal Kalla lodged a complaint, calling for a detailed account of actions are taken and research findings on these distressing fatalities.

The high court directed these entities to investigate the incidents further and to recommend measures for creating an efficient psychological counselling system.

The court, in response, suggested that the counselling system could be optimized through collaboration with organizations like the Mental Health Foundation.

A Focus on the Importance of Counselling for Children

The advocate representing NCPCR highlighted the critical need for psychological counselling for children. In this context, it was suggested that AG, Nyaya Mitra, and NCPCR provide recommendations for building a successful psychological counselling framework.

In reference to the directive, Chief Medical and Health Officer (CHMO) Jagdish Soni told The Free Press Journal, “Our team is providing ongoing counselling to these coaching institutes, and we are conducting extensive research to delve deeper into the matter.”

The state government has constructed a regulatory framework, as per the findings from the Tata Institute of Social Sciences, overseen by the committee. The court has regularly issued guidelines to assist this cause.

The next hearing on this pressing matter is slated for July 20. As the authorities work diligently to avert further tragedies, the entire educational fraternity awaits the proceedings with bated breath.
