The Supreme Court has refused to hear the petition which said that students studying in universities across the country should be given time relaxation for payment of tuition fees. At the same time, guidelines in this regard should be issued by the BCI and UGC. The court has refused to hear the matter. A three-judge bench of Justices Ashok Bhushan, Justice R. Subhash Reddy and Justice MR Shah has refused to hear the case.
Explain that Rummy Rana, a student of Law Fourth Year, had filed a petition in this regard. It was said that in the present circumstances, the pressure should not be made on the students to deposit the fees for one time, but some time can be given for its fee payment.
In this regard, the counsel appearing for the student had said that keeping in mind the interest of the students, he is only asking for some time to collect the fees. He is not seeking a waiver of fees. Justice Bhushan said that the Supreme Court had earlier dismissed similar cases and the bench had said that the petitioners can move to the concerned High Court as all universities, states have different conditions and requirements. Therefore, students should take up this matter in the High Court. The petitioner states that in view of the situation arising out of the Kovid-19 infection across the country, an additional demand was made to collect the fees.
On the other hand, if you talk about educational activities due to corona virus infection, then schools and colleges are still closed. Educational institutions closed since March could not be opened till September. Although in Unlock 4 it was believed that schools and colleges could be opened, but due to the ever increasing outbreak, it is difficult at the moment.
