Students of the Lucknow University have launched a Twitter campaign titled ‘No exam, no fee’, to seek reduction in course fee and scrapping of examination fee in view of the pandemic situation.
The students said the financial condition of many families has deteriorated due to heavy medical expenditure incurred on treatment of Covid-19 patients, and the university should consider scrapping examination fees and reducing fees charged under other heads.
One of the students spearheading the campaign said “Some law schools and technical universities across the country have reduced the fees and students have been refunded the examination fees considering the pandemic situation. When there is no examination, why should the students pay examination fees.” The representatives of the All India Student Association (AISA) have also demanded a fee waiver.
