Student serves Legal Notice on National Law School for stalling Fee demand

Students of the Rajiv Gandhi National University of Law (RGNUL) have given a legal notice to the University for seeking the semester fee of Rs 1.13 lakh in between the lockdown demanding consideration and re-consideration of various issues and appropriate relaxation in respect of the proposed chargeable fee for the upcoming semester (August-December 2020) in light of the challenges posed by the ongoing pandemic.

As many as 639 students enrolled in the BA LLB course at the University. “The students have been asked to submit the advance chargeable fees of Rs 1.13 lakh by July 10 for upcoming semester. This fee is equivalent to the regular fees minus merely the mess fee (only postponed) and a waiver of the annual increase in the tuition fee amounting to Rs 5, 000,” said Shreyans Jain, advocate in high court of Madhya Pradesh, who is representing the students.

University registrar Naresh Vats said that the University had given a patient hearing to students’ representation following which the decision of seeking fee was taken. “We will respond to the legal notice accordingly,” he said.
