AGARTALA, Aug 21 (TIWN): During the Covid-19 Pandemic when all the educational institutions whether it is government or non-government giving relaxations on fee payment, the Tripura Medical College (TMC) allegedly decided to give no extension for fee payment, instead imposed 200/day fine.

This decision amid lockdown left the students in problems. After requesting for a lot of times, the TMC authority decided to pay no attention and circulated a notice mentioning about the last date of fee payment with the extra amount of fine if the student delays in paying his fees. The fee payment is from 5 lakh to 9 lakh depending on the year of admission which includes the tution, hostel and mess fees altogether, as per the allegation of the students there. 

After the notice circulated by TMC administrative authority, resentment erupted in students and their guardians. Students alleged that in the time of world pandemic when all the sources of income have shut down, such behaviour by the college authority is completely unacceptable. 
 
However, the college authority did not make any comment on this so far. Now it is to see after the repeating requests from students and strong condemning by the knowledgeable section of the society, what step TMC Hapania takes.
