The Manipur University has approved the refund of a certain percentage of the fees under various categories for six months from January to June 2020 as a one-time relief measure for students of the varsity on account of the Covid-19 pandemic.
According to a notice issued by the Registrar of Manipur University, W. Chandbabu Singh, “The Vice-Chancellor/ Administrator, Manipur University has approved the refund of certain fee components and reduction of examination fee for the January to June 2020 semester as a one-time relief measure to the financial hardship faced by the students of Manipur University on account of the Covid-19 pandemic."
There is a uniform 30 per cent cut on examination fees on all schools in the University.
The reduction also includes 50 per cent refund on the laboratory fee received for the 4th semester i.e. from January to June 2020 as the lab exercises could not be conducted due to Covid-19 hence no expenditure had been incurred for the 4th semester.
There is also another 50 per cent cut on the money collected for the field trip and study materials as most of the materials were distributed electronically.
Another 75 per cent would be refunded as far as the field trip fee for the Manipur Institute of Management Studies and PG diploma courses is concerned.
