Puducherry, Mar 12 (GCCurrentAffairs) Close on the heels of the Students Federation of India (SFI), the students council of the Pondicherry University (PU) also urged the authorities to withdraw the fee hike for MBA course in the university.
In a letter to the Registrar two days back, the council pointed out that the fee for all the MBA courses were hiked by 125 percent without any contemplation.
The revised fee structure would result in the denial of higher educational opportunities of many students from poor economic and social background.
Strongly opposing the revision, the council demanded the immediate revocation of the hiked fee structure.
It also said that it came to know from various university sources that there is a move to increase the fee structure of all other courses too and made it clear that the council would strongly oppose it.
Urging the authorities to withdraw the hiked fee structure for MBA and refrain from increasing fee for any other courses, the council cautioned that a students protest will be called for under the initiative of the council, if the university failed to initiate action within three to four days.
