Indore: No fee from martyrs’ children

Indore: Days after worst terror attack on CRPF convoy in Pulwama in which 44 jawans were killed; Devi Ahilya Vishwavidyalaya has decided not to take fee from children of defence force personnel who sacrificed their life for nation. Besides, the university decided to charge only 50 percent of tuition fee from children of armed forces.

The decision was taken during the executive council meeting of Devi Ahilya Vishwavidyalaya on Monday. It was proposed by EC member Alok Dawar, which was accepted by all members. While proposing it, Dawar said, “University is producing good citizens but it doesn’t shoulder responsibility towards nation.

We can play our part in nation building by providing relief in tuition fees to children of army personnel.” Meanwhile, budget of Rs 309 crore was also tabled but EC members didn’t give approval and said copy of budget should be sent with agenda’s copy. After their denial, university decided to hold a special EC meeting on March 1 for discussion on budget.

Meanwhile, a three-member committee was also constituted to investigate the fake admission case of International Institute of Professional Studies, which will submit its report in a month. After EC’s nod, university floated tender for result processing software with annual maintenance worth Rs 4.77 crore.
