By Amrita Gill : Concerning an extra special charge being offered to the students by the Panjab University, Chandigarh. One cannot see any ground as to why the fees should be increased to 10,000 from the earlier one 7500. The recent fee hikes in university has put the Student under great deal of financial pressure and the university administration which are like the guardian of the student should take every care the financial structures of the student ,Fees should not be increased .A simple example where excess fees is charged is P.hd / Mphil entrance exam where a fee of Rs1800 is charged only to apply for the entrance examination, which means a student who is academically capable but do not have 1800 rupees to fill the form cannot even apply for the phd enrollment. The amount for the application form, admission brochures is unreasonably high.
If university requires more fund for itself then there can be implementation of more scientific and productive methods. That will not bring only more fund to the university but will also bring increase in academic standards of the university. This is dire need at the moment.
In response to this fee hikes student organization of university has decided to go on protest for the demand to reduce the increase in these amounts. Vice president ,NSUI said,’It’s requested that the above purpose reduction in charges should be implemented in immediate effect.If the students requests are not implemented forth with then we will sit on the dharna started on Wednesday.’
