Demanding reduction in fees for Odd Semester 2020-21 of COEP
We the students of COEP would like to thank the College Administration of College of Engineering Pune (COEP) for taking the timely decision of conducting the upcoming semester online.
We would like to bring to your notice the fact that due to this pandemic, the families of many of students whose income source is primary are affected the most. Also, majority of the students of our college have faced financial problems due to businesses closing down, reduction of salaries, etc.
Also, since the semester would be conducted online, students will have to bear a quite high amount of charges for getting an uninterrupted internet facility as well as getting various softwares, resources and study material.
Further the facilities such as gymkhana, library, laboratory, internet and boat club are totally campus based.
- In view of the above, it is earnestly requested that the fees for the above-mentioned facilities be waived off by at least 50%.
- Also, a deferred fee payment system should be enabled for those students who are unable to pay the complete fees in a single stroke. Facility should be given for students to pay fees in installments.
- Also, there are students who avail education loan and then pay the fees. Due care should also be taken for them by coordinating with the bank and extending credit facility to them.
- No student should be restricted from receiving quality education, and thus no compulsion should be made on students to pay fees before credit registration.
This would give some relief to parents of our students.
