Kota has been witnessing an alarming surge in student suicide cases since the past few months, raising concerns among the local authorities. The suicides in Kota have sparked conversations on the mental health of students and how stress is driving them to the edge.

The authorities have now made it mandatory to install anti-hanging devices in ceiling fans at all coaching centers and issued directives for institutes to refrain from conducting any examinations for a period of two months. Determined to check the disturbing trend, the state government last year issued guidelines for coaching centres, asking them to take steps to keep students stress-free.
