Hello everyone,

   We are the students of K.G Joshi College, Thane and we are setting up this petition to make the college reduce our fees for the academic year 2021-2022.

   These are tough times and everyone has been adversely affected, everyone has received a pay cut and given these circumstances it isn't possible for all the students to pay full fees (ranging approximately from ₹10,000 to ₹20,000 depending on the course) as they have been paying for the last couple of years. We believe its very inconsiderate of the college to charge full fees as the mode of education is online which means students are not using college amenities like classroom, electricity, seminar hall, campus, library, etc. Moreover, students have to buy an internet plan each month to attend all the online lectures and if one is to attend 6 hours worth of lectures then the internet plan would cost around 500-600 rupees a month which is an amount much higher than what a student needs to spend to travel to college each month. Students are willing to pay a sizable amount of the tuition fees as the teachers too have to make a living and we understand that but it is unjust  to charge anything more than that. Gym fees, library fees and utility fees are unjust as students won't be using any of those facilities.

   Many of our fellow students have suffered economically during this pandemic and many have lost their sources of income   I hope our request would be considered and appropriate measures would be taken to set this right and give the students some concession in the fees.

Thank you.
