The second wave of COVID has hit our country, compelling many states to impose lockdown and colleges and other educational institutions to shift to the online mode of education. Given that students are currently attending classes completely through the online medium, it becomes a cause of concern as to why ain't they being provided compensation in the fees. 

 

The arbitrariness of private institutions, in this case, has been appalling. Students from different economic sections of society study in these colleges. It is a known fact that the economy has been hit hard and yet my parents have to pay the exact fees that they would pay if the classes were offline. 

 

It is important to understand that students are not availing of a lot of facilities that they are paying for.  Why should my parents pay for sports and transport fee if I am not even visiting the college? A year has passed and all this while private institutions kept churning money out of students' misery. 

 

Sign this petition, to request the authorities to instruct private institutions to reduce the fees given the unprecedented crisis. Everyone is bearing the brunt of a stalled economy and forcing them to pay for services that they ain't availing is not only unjustified but also ethically incorrect. We are amidst a crisis and mutual understanding of one another's suffering is the need of the hour.
