Stressing the need to make arrangements according to the interests of the students, the Governor said that integrated arrangements should be made in a manner that depositing fees at any one place should not act as a hindrance to the choice of the student’s course and institute options. The system of depositing the fee in a centralised bank account at the time of admission should be tested.
