Govt to teach Edtech a lesson?

ASCI last month said it analysed 5,532 advertisements in the previous fiscal year, and 33% of complaints pertained to the education sector.

Already facing funding winters and layoffs, edtechs are in trouble again. The Central government has warned the ed-tech companies against unfair trade practices.

The Consumer Affairs Department under the Ministry of Ministry of Consumer Affairs held a meeting on June 24 with edtech companies raised concerns regarding increasing complaints against such firms from consumers.

Consumer Affairs Secretary said If self-regulation does not curb unfair trade practices, then stringent guidelines would be formulated for ensuring transparency.
