The North-East Forum for International Solidarity (NEFIS) urged the Manipur University authority to refund the unused fees of the common students and not to take the examination fee as actual physical exams never happened.
NEFIS will support the struggle of common students regarding unjustified fees being levied from the students in Manipur University, said a release issued by NEFIS.
Asserting that no physical classes have been conducted during the past months and the examinations were not conducted in the physical mode and assessment were done through the assignments, it said THAT levying an examination fee is unjustified.
There is no basis for taking examination fee when no examinations have been conducted and such move can be seen as extortion in the name of examination fee and similarly reduction of field trip fee by 50 per cent carries no logic, said the release.
It is also appalling that when the students tried to raise the issue before the assistant registrar (Academic), her response was completely insensitive and completely disregarded the concerns of the students, it further said.
The release added that, “the unused fees should be refunded in toto, and examination fee should be charged reasonably, that is under heads of form fill-up, mark-sheet and others.”
