                              Sub: The enhancement of course fees by the Pondicherry

                                        University for the Academic Year 2012-2013 – Request for

                                        immediate withdrawal of enhanced Tution and other fees –


Respected Sir,

                          We submit to state that there are around six thousand students

pursuing various higher studies in the Pondicherry Central University and it is

needless to mention that there are around 90 percent of students hailing from

lower as well as middle class segment. Even in the above said, students from

Rural and Semi Urban Areas continue their Higher Studies with considerable

hardship and strain.

                           It is submitted that so far the Pondicherry University had charged

Tution fees and other course fees in the academic year 2011 -2012 and

although the charges are not bearable, the students were compelled to pay

the said fees with great difficulties. Now the students are tremendously

shocked to notice that

properly, suddenly enhanced and manifoldly increased the tution fees and

course fees with effect from academic year 2012-13 for all kind of students

who pursued different courses in the university and this has brought strong

resentment among the Student Community and the same has been strongly

objected and brought to our knowledge for taking up the issue with you for

immediate withdrawal of enhanced Tution Fees and other Fees for the

Academic year 2012-13.

the Pondicherry University without considering

It is submitted that the Universities are part of the Government

and they have the responsibility to ensure that all students should be given

free and fair education and steps should be taken to the academic

development and assist the students to achieve the desired goal to improve

the knowledge of Education to one and all. This is possible only with the help

and assistance tendered by the Universities and especially those who are

economically and socially backward such of those Students should be given

free education to ensure that the young peoples may be encouraged to pursue

Higher Education without difficulty.

                                    It is submitted that we would like to bring to your kind notice that

there are various Universities in India and especially in other States, for

example 1.JawaharLal Nehru University,New Delhi, 2.JamiaMillia University,

New Delhi, 3.North Eastern Hill University, Megalaya, 4. Hyderabad Central

University, Andhra Pradesh and other Universities are all charging

comparatively very less Tution Fees and other charges for all students pursuing

their studies.This being the facts it is sad to note that the Pondicherry Central

University without examining all these factors and without considering the

Social and Economic factors of the students as a whole suddenly increased the

Tution Fees and Other Fees manifold. We would like to draw your attention on

the above said reasons and factual positions and request you earnestly to

arrange to immediately withdraw the proposed Increase of Tution Fees and

other Fees for the Academic Year 2012-2013, in the Pondicherry Central

University and permit the Students to pay either less or no fees for their

Higher Studies.
                                      In view of the above stated position we request you kindly

intervene and arrange to withdraw the proposed increase in Tution fees and

other fees in the Pondicherry Central University for the Academic year 2012-13

and permit the students to pay Less Fees or No Fees for Tution and other Fees

for their Higher Education.
