As we all know that our world is in pandemic situation and we are all facing many troubles due to COVID-19.

The academic year has been disrupted due to the unprecedented nationwide lockdown to contain the Corona pandemic. With delayed academic calendar and the possibility of online examination without course-work being complete, there is a great deal of trepidation among the students.
We know that online exams are likely to be discriminatory to the underprivileged students given the highly uneven access to infrastructure and connectivity. It is also inadvisable to conduct exams without completion of course work in a physical class.
In the name of online examination, many universities are demanding examination fees with set deadlines and charging huge fines for not submitting the examination fee.
This situation is not only in favour of all students but also many students come from underprivileged areas and hence they can’t submit the fee online or by physical means in the middle of the lockdown.
Many students are living in RED zones and are unable to reach banks, also there are students who are facing money crisis in the due course of Lockdown. They don’t have funds to submit fee at this moment.

In the light of this, We have the following demands from University Grants Commission:
1.Fee Submission deadline should be announced by the end of Lockdown period.
2.University should give Relief in examination fee.
3.All Students in Year 1 and 2 should be promoted without conducting exams. Extra classes for course work missed should be conducted after universities re-open.
4.Students in Final Year should be promoted based on past performance with 10% extra marks since it is observed that students improve their performance in the final year.
5.We also demand that universities must give 50% relief in the semester fee. Families across the spectrum have suffered great economic loss. We believe that in this time, the education of our youth should not suffer and hence demand that semester fee must be less than usual.
Universities may seek additional funds from PM Cares fund where teachers and University staff contributed.
Students are the future of this country and their future shouldn’t be uncertain and dark due to this unprecedented crisis.
We demand a 50% waive off the semester fee and mass promotions of the students to the next year, as all the other suggested ways by UGC is somewhat discriminatory to the poor and unprivileged students.
If you agree with these three demands, please sign this petition and share it with others and ask them to do the same..
