As per India legal news reports, the apex court held that students who are lured by unrecognized and non-affiliated educational institutes, through misleading advertisements, should be compensated adequately. This is a significant decision that has great relevance for today’s students. Everywhere across the country, there are new institutes claiming to be the best ones for training or grooming students into experts in the domain. However, most students may not do a thorough check at all and get cheated by unscrupulous institutes. The court said that such duped students can be compared to victims of train accidents. The court referred to them as victims of career accidents. To prevent such incidents in future, such fake institutes shall be made to pay.
