The State Government was reminded by the Northern Angami Students Union (NASU) over the ‘charter of demands’ submitted on June 21 regarding fee concession for students. NASU office in a press release informed that no response was received from the Government even after 16 days of submission.
The Government was therefore asked by the Union to expedite the ‘charter of demands’ at the earliest.
The ‘charter of demands’ by NASU consist of school fee waiver for unaided recognized private institutions. While acknowledging the service rendered by the staffs and management of every institution, be it aided or unaided establishments, the union urged the government to pass an order directing all unaided recognized private institutions to waive off certain percent of tuition fees for the unutilized facilities until formal or physical classes commences.
Institutions/school management should not prohibit students from attending exams, online classes and not to keep the results withheld of any students due to non-payment of fees/arrears/outstanding fees. It requested the institutions/school management to understand and keep the requests made by the parent ward to pay annual fees due to economic downfall caused by the lockdown.
NASU reminded the Government that the union is “ready to move forward with any legal/appropriate course of action if our demands turn upon deaf ears.”
