SIO demands Government of Maharashtra 50% exemption in University Admission and Examination Fees for students

A delegation from SIO South Maharashtra spoke to the Minister of Higher and Technical Education (Maharashtra) Uday Samant regarding the exemption of admission and examination fees in all colleges and universities across Maharashtra.

The Covid-19 pandemic has badly hit all the sections of society leading to a situation of financial distress. Many have lost their lives and jobs unable to earn and support their families.

The student community welcomed the State Government's decision regarding Online Education but showed concerns regarding payment of complete fees for admission and examination despite closure of all campus and its facilities making it very difficult for the common man to pay such a huge amount.

"We believe it is crucial that in no circumstance should admission and examination fees be charged to parents and students." Musaddiq ul Moid (Joint secretary SIO Maharashtra south) says.

Being a voice for the voiceless and the down trodden SIO South Maharashtra wrote to Mr Uday Samant bringing to light the dire situation of the students demanding a 50% exemption in the current admission and examination fees and reduction of next academic year's fees. To
this he assured he will bring up the issue in the Fees Regulating Authority of Maharashtra meeting on Wednesday and that steps will be taken regarding the same.
