Netaji Subhash University of Technology (NSUT) on Monday elucidated that no fee hike has been declared this year. The university’s Dean, Prof. Sujata Sengar told indiatvnews.com that the fee structure for the whole course was communicated to the students at the time of their admission.

“There has not been any fee revision this year for the already admitted students,” she added.

On July 21, NSUT had issued a notice with a detailed fee structure for the ongoing academic session. Through the notice, the students will have to pay the fee by July 31, else a penalty for late fee would be fined.

Afterwards, students at NSUT had requisitioned an online petition demanding fee relaxation.

“Since the University will be conducting online classes, Tuition fee and Eco Fund are the only two components that seem legitimate. According to the University, the Student Fund is charged for co-curricular activities, cultural gathering, fest, etc. Facilities and services are charged for Research initiatives, etc, Examination Fee for manpower hiring, printing cost, infrastructure strengthening, and as for University fee, it is not disclosed where it is utilized,” the petition by students stated.

Several students told indiatvnews.com that the financial stability of most of the families has been distressed due to the coronavirus pandemic.

“We have lost all the money. My father works on daily wages and he is the only source of income. Due to the lockdown, he is not working anymore. My family’s annual income is less than 2 lakhs. I applied for the scholarship because I belong to SC but the college refused,” said an NSUT student.

The fee structure of Netaji Subhash University of Technology is quoted for second-year students, the total fee is 1,90,000.

The deconstruction of the total fee is as follows:  

  • Tuition Fee – Rs. 59500
  • University Fee –Rs.74750
  • Student Fund –Rs.22500
  • Facility and Services –Rs.16250
  • Eco. Fund – Rs. 5000
  • Examination Fee –Rs.12000

The students also mentioned that NSUT is enormously charging fees to allow them to register for back-log exams.

“This is government institution still they are charging this much fees. My family has no source of money for the last four months. How will my parents pay this huge amount? Classes are being conducted online still they are charging for infrastructure, cultural fest, etc. They should take only tuition fees and give up one month to deposit the fees,” said by 1st-year student.

Over back-log exam fees, the Dean said, “Actually as per our ordinance if a student fails in a course he/she to repeat the entire course( classes exams, etc.). It is not only writing the end term exam. Thus a fee is charged per backlog paper for teaching exams etc. It is calculated on the basis of tuition fee + exam fees.

“By the way, I also conducted remedial classes for students with poor performance until mid-semester. The response of students was not very encouraging. No fees were charged for that,” she mentioned.

The re-registration fees for the academic year 2020-21 is, as per the Dean statement, the Fee for UG Courses during Regular Semester is Rs. 7000/- per Subject and the Fee for PG Courses during Regular Semester is Rs. 4500/- per Subject.
