Subject : College should charge only tuition fees for the academic year 2020-2021 as there is no physical college due to COVID-19.

Respected Sir/Ma’am,

               We, the students of Priyadarshini College of Engineering, from all year and all departments have united to submit our humble request regarding the above mentioned subject that, our college must charge the fees on the pro rata basis by only considering the tuition fees and discarding other fees, only for the academic year 2020-2021. This request is purely on the basis of current pandemic situation. We have some valid reasons on why we should only offer to pay the tuition fees and why you should only consider the tuition fees. Kindly go through the following mentioned points for having better idea on our petition

1. Due to Corona virus and its safety measures like lockdown, many parents have lost their jobs, many are not receiving the full payment and those who are having their own business are also not in a good financial condition. Since, the income of many have drastically effected, paying the full fees without even attending college is like a big burden. If the college doesn’t consider our request then some may also have to leave their education in the middle because of this economic crisis. So it’s necessary to wave off the fees except tuition fees, for reducing parents burden and saving the bright future of some students.

2. Furthermore, In this current situation where colleges are closed since march 2020, students have not been using any of college’s facilities like library, canteen, sports, labs etc. Since these facilities are not in use by the students and looking at the current scenario, college may not reopen at all this year, then why the students should pay for them ? The education we are receiving now are all by means of online/distant education which puts separate burden on us like having a device (laptop, mobile, tablet, etc.) that caters the requirements and also a separate proper internet connection. This is why college should only consider the tuition fees.

3. Moreover, as the students aren't attending college and may not attend this year, college is saving a lot of electricity, water and maintenance bills. The bills and maintenance charges are also taken care from our fees which is no longer required this year. This is another reason why the fees should be less this year.

4. Printing expenses are huge which are ultimately saved by the college . This is another expense which is added in our fees which should also be reduced. Now college is saving on practical books, practical pages, CAT copies, answer sheets,etc. All these extra fees should be removed.

It will be favourable if we discuss this matter with you in person and we forsee scheduled time of your at the earliest after submitting this signed petition.

We are humbly letting you know that we are determined on our request of waving off the fees except the tuition fees for the year 2020-2021. No response/acknowledgement or any delays on our Petition will be observed as negligence which may result into we approaching higher college authorities or government authorities or any other appropriate step will be taken in order to get a satisfactory solution.

We look forward to have your positive and quick response.

Sincere regards,

Students of Priyadarshini college of engineering.
