Mangaluru: Mangalore University Vice-Chancellor P. S. Yadapadithaya has informed that the university will reduce the college transfer certificate fee that a student must pay while changing college in the middle of a course. He claims that the existing cost is too high for many people to afford.
On Friday December 17, the proposal was discussed during the third academic council meeting.
According to sources, Shankar Bhat P., Principal of Government First Grade College, Kanyana, had written to Yadapadithaya that when a student transfers to another institution in the middle of a course, getting a no-objection certificate costs a lot of money. “This is a financial burden for parents who are struggling to make ends meet. Therefore, it must be removed,” he stated.
In response to the issue, Yadapadithaya has said that a Mangalore University student currently pays a fee of Rs. 3,000, whereas a student from another university must pay Rs. 2,300 to take admission in Mangalore University colleges. “I understand this is steep. We will cut the fee so that students are not burdened,” said Yadapadithaya.
