STUDENTS OF REC (2024 BATCH) started this petition to Management of Rajalakshmi Engineering College and

We the first year students of Rajalakshmi Engineering College deserve some slack in our working hours and in the way we are treated. Currently the whole world is facing a pandemic and Our country and our State in specific is facing the second wave of the covid-19 virus. Since the beginning of our academic year in November 2020, we have been nothing but understanding and cooperative towards whatever decision the principal and the management took. We took whatever pressure that was inflicted upon us with good spirit as we realized if we worked hard now, we wouldn't face as much pressure later.

Unfortunately that has not been the case as we started off our college life with 6 day working weeks with 4 hours of class everyday with no holidays except mandatory government holidays. Which transformed into 6 days a week OFFLINE classes with literally 4 back to back examinations, when offline classes were conducted from February to March 2021. To make things worse, the covid-19 guidelines were not even followed strictly during the duration of said in-campus classes which further depleted our spirits. Now after the end of our first semester,  we started our second semester after a meagre 6 days of vacation. Now the ongoing second semester which commenced from 15 April 2021- present, includes 6 DAY WORK WEEKS WITH 5 HOURS PER DAY, After which we are unable to do anything for ourselves as we are bombarded with homework and studying for examinations. It is important to note that there was no vacation given during the horrible summer months of April and May which had exorbitant temperatures and of course, when there also was no lack of examinations and Assignments.

We are requesting and pleading the principal and the management to understand and consider the mental and physical strain that we are inflicting on ourselves to keep up with our work. Many of us are stuck in our villages with shoddy internet and lackluster health due to vaccinations and even those who have encountered the virus themselves. It is also unfair that even though we attended only 2 months of in-campus classes we are forced to pay the full semester fees(which also includes bus charge) even when some of our parents are not receiving their full salaries due to lesser opportunities because of the multiple lockdowns and restrictions. Again we are begging and imploring the management as we are weary of mind and body,  to please grant us Lesser working hours per day or at least 5 working days per week. We have joined this college due to the trust and belief we have on the management and the institution itself. we really hope and believe that you'll understand and grant our requests.

Thank you,

Yours Respectfully, 

Students of REC(Batch of 2024)
