Is your college in Haryana? Is it a final order or a interim order?

G.L.N. Prasad (Retired employee.)     27 May 2020

Keep apart your arguments for some time, and think for a while as to whether the college can melt their buildings, loans for such construction like ice in summer or because the teaching is online, whether they can ask the faculty to accept the only fraction of actual salary, and can they terminate all administrative and other staff.  On line, classes are for convenience and not followed by the colleges on their own to reduce the expenditure. Are the students are going to pay extra fees to college as they are being taught in their residences as per comfort,  without any extra burden ?. Those who can not attend regular colleges, the Government is encouraging them with such correspondence courses always.  Think of practicability and never think of using some one's adversity to your own advantage.  These COVID 19  situation is rare and unusual and everyone is trying to get out with less impact and continue regular activities.  When even banks are reeling under stress, the educational institutions must get more financial stress and work compulsion.   Support your institution and not to target it at this point as you might have not raised all this if everything is normal.

Sir i understand but my college fee is 180000 my college don't have campus its own by a billionaire person its running from last 100yrs. And fact cannot be ignored education today has become business. Many persons are not able to afford good quality education. I know the expenses of a colleges its much higher side considering expenses and future growth.

That is the reason the state is opening colleges with highly qualified faculty recruited through the expert board and charges the bare minimum as fees.  The issue before the forum was not that of high fees which you were paying gladly by opting for such college,  but the justification for collecting such fees during COVID 19.

Exactly sir this was not the question before forum but when you started telling about problems of institutions so i told you.

And wanted legal advice not whether i should target or not.

And i have raised issue related to fees earlier also not only bcz of covid only, this is a serious issue but person having lots money will not understand.

For understanding any issue, money is not the alone criterion, the issue before the forum is as to whether the college has to waive the fees due to lockdown and as the classes are conducted online.

A simple explanation was given to you that college can not reduce any fixed expenditure due to lockdown and they have not asked students not to come, because it is an extraordinary situation at every place, a student must be understanding.

Because you are not using a vehicle can you ask the lender not to demand EMI and waive it altogether?   One can only postpone and waive penalty and not EMI.
