Veer Narmad South Gujarat University (VNSGU) students can check copy of their answer-book by paying fees of Rs 500 and get photo-copy paying Rs 2 per page charge under Right to Information Act (RTI). The decision was taken in a syndicate meeting held at VNSGU on Monday. Earlier in 2014, VNSGU announced to give copy of answer-book for Rs 1,000 fees but the decision was not implemented.
Akhil Bhartiya Vidyarthi Parishad (ABVP) had carried out demonstration and demanded to implement the decision. The decision was not implemented despite various representations due to internal politics within VNSGU circles. Sources in VNSGU informed that a group of faculties and administrative officials were against the implementation.
For the copy of answer-book a student is supposed to apply in prescribed format with fees. For each answer-book Rs 500 will be charged as administrative expenses while Rs 2 per page is charged for photo-copy expenses, VNSGU officials informed.
“The decision was taken in past to implement it in exam of 2015. Since the syndicate approved the decision now the copy of answer-book will be given immediately. An approval was awaited from syndicate,” said Dakshesh Thakar, vice-chancellor of VNSGU. Students can get benefit of the new arrangement from Tuesday.
