The government neither responded to the request nor gave announcement regarding reimbursements. The chairperson of Association said that the policy of government regarding reimbursements is disappointing, and it affects the career of 20,000 students. The government has to draw the attention towards the concerns of the students.
The association is also demanding the government to conduct offline admission process for degree and PG courses. This year, the online admission process led to utter failure. Over two lakh UG seats are vacant. The government did not create proper awareness regarding online admissions to the students. Most of the students from rural areas did not join in any of the colleges due to lack of awareness.
