The admission process of Post Graduate Colleges under Rani Channamma University in Belgaum has started. This year, the university has doubled-tripled the admission fee of the postgraduate department. Due to this, strong anger is being expressed from the students. Also, the students are demanding that the higher education department should pay attention to this and reduce the fees.
Earlier, the students of Rani Channamma University in Bhutramhatti had to pay a fee of Rs 5,000 to 6,000. But this year, the fee has been increased and it has been increased to Rs. 15,000 to 16,000. Students of other universities used to pay a fee of 15 to 17 thousand rupees, but this year the fee has been increased by 29 to 30 thousand rupees.
The decision to increase the fees taken by the university is expected to affect the number of students. The university, which is always in the news for one reason or the other, has drawn the ire of the students due to the doubling of the admission fee.
Online admission process is going on from last 15 days. But as soon as the university published the information regarding the admission fee for the year 2022-23 on the website, the students were shocked by the increase in fees. Due to the fee increase announced by the university, the number of students is also expected to decrease this year.
It is said that even the Vice-Chancellor is not aware of this fee hike and the students are preparing to start a protest against the huge fee hike. The vice-chancellor pointed to the registrar and said that he was not aware of the fee hike.
