TIT students allege forcible collection

india Updated: Dec 11, 2006 17:02 IST

A SECTION of the students of Technocrats Institute of Technology (TIT) have alleged that the college administration is forcing them to pay participation fees of Rs 5,000 for campus selection process and has reportedly warned them that if the fees is not paid they would not be issued admit cards for the semester exams commencing from December 15.

Students have said that they have been asked to pay Rs 2,000 upfront and Rs 3,000 later on and a verbal warning regarding non-issuance of admit cards has been given.

However, the college administration has emphatically denied forcible extraction of fees. Institute director Dr C L Saxena, while conceding that participation fees of Rs 2,000 has been decided for all students save those in part I, said the students can pay the fees till next semester and there is no deadline.

He also denied the allegation that students were warned of not being issued exam admit cards on failing to pay the amount. “We can never issue such a warning,” Dr Saxena told Hindustan Times. He also denied that the participation fee was Rs 5,000.

Organising the campus selection process, which is important for students, incurs lot of expenditure. This is why participation fee was sought from the students, he added.

22 SELECTED: Meanwhile, in a campus process held on Sunday, Bangalore-based Indian Biologicals selected 22 MBA and Pharmacy students at an annual package of Rs 2.5 lakhs. Of these, 10 students were from the Technocrats Institute of Technology.

The remaining students are from Bansal College, LNCT, VNS, IPER, People’s College, RKDF, Satya Sai College, Sehore, SATI Vidisha and Oriental College.

Head of training and placement Prof Rajesh Nema welcomed the campus selection team and thanked them for conducting the
process. Director (MBA) Prof R K Bharti assured the students that in future too better placement opportunities would be provided.
