Jalandhar, October 13

Students who are moving to the second, third or fourth year in colleges affiliated with Guru Nanak Dev University and had not paid their admission fee till now have heaved a sigh of relief.

Reason: The varsity has decided to slash the late fee charges from Rs25,000 to Rs5000 for them. The late fee charges to the tune of Rs25,000 were imposed from October 9, after which as many as 10-20 per cent of the students in various colleges, who had not taken admission were finding it extremely difficult to continue with their education after paying such huge amount. But the varsity has conveyed to all colleges to levy only Rs5,000 as late fee charges till the last date, which is October 31. Already unable to pay the dues in time, owing to the pandemic, parents had expressed their inability to pay up for the continuity of their wards’ studies. President of Principals’ Association Dr Gurpinder Samra and principal of HMV College Dr Ajay Sareen expressed satisfaction over the decision of the GNDU authorities to slash the late fee amount.
