Waive Tution Fees of IITs as Covid-19 has taken a toll on guardians' income

This year has been a tough one for all of us. We are witnessing an unprecedented challenge in the form of a pandemic Covid-19. No one could have ever imagined that a small virus would bring the whole world to a halt. For a country like India where most of the people have hand to mouth existence, it becomes even tougher to manage such a crisis. The more than 2-month-long lockdown imposed to stem the spread of coronavirus has crushed our economy. Many people have lost their jobs. The lockdown has dried up all our savings.

Now that the economic activities are resuming slowly, it will take us some time to get our lives back on track.
Our parents are trying hard to make both ends meet. In this recuperating phase, it would be impossible for us to submit our tution fees (which is over 1 Lakh Rupees) for the upcoming semester which is quite a huge amount. 

Also, the upcoming semester will be completely digitized. So we would not be availing the facilities like electricity, internet, laboratories and many more. Charging the students with the usual tution fees in these unusual times will be unjust.

Some kind of fee waiver can be given to the students. Also, there may be a provision to pay the resulting amount (after waiving some fee) in multiple installments. It will be a great relaxation.

It is our humble request to all the respected dignitaries to kindly understand the plight of the students and take some compassionate action.

Thank you in advance!
