Bathinda, May 18

The Joint Action Committee (JAC), representing over 1,600 unaided colleges of Punjab, has taken a serious note of non-declaration of results by Maharaja Ranjit Singh Punjab Technical University (MRSPTU), Bathinda, over non-payment of fees by its students.

Around 2,000 students are studying in affiliated colleges of the university.


A majority of colleges have announced their result, barring a few. We have submitted the details of colleges that haven't paid dues to their staff to the principal secretary. The said colleges must come clean with regard to the payments. — Mohan Paul Singh Ishar, Vice-Chancellor, MRSPTU

Manjit Singh, senior vice-president, Punjab Unaided Technical Institutions Association (PUTIA), said no government university should withhold the result, detailed mark certificate (DMC) and degree of any student over non-payment of fees.

Committee spokesman and Punjab Unaided Colleges Association (PUCA) chief Dr Anshu Kataria urged Chief Minister Capt Amarinder Singh; Technical Education Minister S Charanjit Singh Channi and Principal Secretary, Higher Education, Anurag Verma, to intervene in the matter and save the future of students.

AICTE, along with other top educational bodies of the country, has suggested the colleges not to charge any fee from the students and instead pay salaries to its staff. Contrary to that, MRSPTU has withheld the results of students studying in unaided colleges after the latter failed to pay their dues.
