PU Increases Registration, Admission Fees
The Punjab University (PU) has increased admission and registration fee for off-campus students appearing in the varsity’s BA/BSc examinations.
The registration fee has been increased from Rs 1600 to Rs 1850 while admission fee reached from Rs 2150 to Rs 2450. Meanwhile, different student organizations – including Islami Jamiat Talaba (IJT) and Insaf Students Federation (ISF) – have condemned the abrupt increase in the fees, terming it anti-student and anti-education move and demanding the varsity withdraw the same in the best interest of the students.
They warned that if the decision to increase admission and registration fees was not withdrawn, a protest campaign would be launched against the varsity administration.
