  • The delay in disbursing the students’ fee has hampered the functioning of the colleges for the current financial year.  
  • DU administration is yet to transfer Rs. 4-5 crore to 61of its colleges and the reason behind the delay is unknown.

During the admission process for the academic session 2017-18, the University of Delhi had collected the students’ fee in a centralised manner. The administration of DU assured that the fee that is collected from the students would be sent to the respective colleges after the DU Admission Process is wrapped up. It has been five months and the varsity is yet to return the students’ fee to 61 colleges. These colleges have been facing financial problems as the works at these colleges have been stalled.

According to sources, DU is yet to transfer Rs. 4 to 5 crore to each one of the 61 colleges. The colleges have already contacted the varsity numerous times but did not receive any response. The reason for the delay is unknown to many colleges. Moreover, it is the first time that DU colleges have been facing such kind of situation. Delay in disbursing the students’ fee is severely affecting the functioning of colleges.
