Jamshedpur, Nov. 10: Jamshedpur Women’s College today decided to slash examination fees for two batches following students’ protests.
The fee, Rs 900 and Rs 1,100 (per semester) for undergraduate and postgraduate students, respectively, were reduced to Rs 600 and Rs 800 post-protests. Students coming from economically weak sections will have to pay 50 per cent of the amount.
However, protests continued as the girls sought a further reduction.
A member of the students’ union of Jamshedpur Co-operative College tried to attack the principal on the campus over an admission row.
Dhananjay Singh, a Jharkhand Chhatra Morcha supporter, had sought admission for one of his friends. The college authorities demanded relevant documents. However, Singh objected and went to complain to principal A.K. Sinha. The principal also refused to grant admission without seeing the documents. An angry Singh tried to assault Sinha, but was stopped by a college employee. Singh then attacked the employee.
An FIR has been registered against Singh.
