Indore: Devi Ahilya Vishwavidyalaya (DAVV) on Tuesday threatened to disaffiliate colleges, which had collected National Service Scheme (NSS) fee from students but did not deposit it with the university. In a letter addressed to colleges principals, DAVV registrar Ajay Verma stated that it has been found that colleges have collected NSS fee from students but not deposited with the university.
“The fee should be submitted at the earliest else the DAVV may consider suspending affiliation,” letter remarked. As per state government directives, the colleges having strength of more than 200 students are required to set up NSS unit on their campuses and collect Rs 120 from each student.
The fee is to be submitted in the university so that it can organise NSS activities. But in current academic session, the university received NSS fee of Rs 48,000. Despite passing of six months, the colleges have not submitted NSS fee they collected in July. Verma said university would soon upload the list of defaulting colleges on its website to name and shame them.
