Chandigarh, July 21 -- The local administration again deferred the sealing drive against coaching centres for not complying with the directions to submit fire safety NOCs (no-objection certificates) and meet the safety norms.

The administration on Wednesday had issued an order to seal as many as 68 coaching and educational institutes across the city that failed to respond to the notices issued under Section 133 of the Code of Criminal Procedure (CrPC).
