Shimla, September 6

The last date for admission to undergraduate courses (first to third year) in government degree colleges has been extended till September 15. There are 138 government colleges in Himachal Pradesh.

The decision was taken after some Deputy Directors, Education, principals of colleges, students associations, students and parents requested the the Higher Education Department to extend the date for admission to the colleges, which expired on August 31, said Amarjeet Sharma, Director Higher Education.

Besides, the department has directed the principals of colleges to charge only one-month hostel and mess fees from the students.

“It has come to our knowledge that some colleges are charging the hostel and mess fees for six months from the students at a time when people are facing a financial crisis due to the ongoing pandemic,” said Sharma. — TNS
