Claiming that authorities of Netaji Subhash Institute of Technology in Delhi (formerly known as Delhi Institute of Technology) are charging enormous fees to allow students to register for back-log exams, a group of students today sought Deputy Chief Minister and Education Minister of Delhi Manish Sisodia's intervention into the matter. They have written a letter mentioning their problems to Sisodia and it has been learnt that the Deputy Chief Minister has forwarded it to DS Pandit, director of higher education. Sisodia has reportedly asked Pandit to take appropriate action in the matter.
"We are not eligible for any internship if we have back-logs in first and second year, which we are allowed to clear in third year only. We are being asked to re-attend all the classes, even if they clash with our current semester classes," the letter sent by students to Sisodia read.
The students claim that college authority has issued a notice asking third year students of the institute to pay a fee of Rs 10,000 per subject to register themselves for back-log papers of odd semesters (I and III) under a new scheme of Choice-Based Credit System.
Not only this, the students will have to pay an additional amount of Rs 800 as examination fee and Rs 100 for per semester mark sheet. SP Singh, dean of Netaji Subhash Institute of Technology has far not responded to journalists who approached him to seek his version over the issue.
