Syndicate meet to decide on exam fee hike

By Our Staff Reporter

KOZHIKODE, JUNE 6 . The Syndicate of the Calicut University has decided to hold another round of talks with the representatives of various students' organisations on June 11 before taking a final decision on the proposal to hike the examination fees.

This was decided after two Syndicate members, M.P.Adam Mulsi, who is representative of the student community, and Mathai Chacko, MLA, opposed the proposal to hike examination fees at the Syndicate meeting held on the campus at Thenipalam on Saturday. Earlier, the Syndicate Examination Standing Committee had proposed an across-the-board hike in examination fees of the university.

The university had decided to go ahead with the proposal to increase the examination fee after the authorities failed to come to an amicable settlement with student leaders on the issue.

The authorities had held talks with the student organisation representatives twice in the last three months. But the talks failed to yield any positive results.

Likewise, it was decided that the proposal to introduce affiliation fees for degree and post-graduate programmes was also put off for the time being. The issue would be discussed on June 11.

The Syndicate also decided to register the Calicut University Institute of Engineering and Technology (CUIET) under a society. It was decided that the CUIET would have a governing body with the Vice-Chancellor as Chairman.

The Pro-Vice-Chancellor, Syndicate members, V.P. Abdul Hameed, Dr. K.P. Mamootty, a representative each from the National Institute of Technology (NIT), All India Council for Technical Education (AICTE), Indian Institute of Science, Bangalore, besides the Dean of Faculty of Engineering would be the other members of the governing body.

It was also decided at the meeting that the Syndicate Staff Standing Committee and the Finance Standing Committee would look into the issue of regularising the appointments of security personnel, gardeners and room boys.
