Scores of students from Islamic University of Science and Technology Monday staged protest in Lal Chowk demanding revision of fee structure.
The students alleged that they are being forced to pay Rs 19000 per semester which amounts to Rs 38000 per annum while the fee structure for all the Government Polytechnic colleges is only Rs 2300 per annum.
“You can yourself imagine how IUST is looting us. Even the Vice Chancellor is now back tracking who earlier had promised to us that our fee will be refunded,” one of the students Reyaz Ahmed who was part of the protest told CNS.
The protesting students said that VC had made a commitment that once the University will receive funds, the student’s fee will be refunded and the fee for the coming semesters will be revised. They said nothing in this regard has been done and students continue to suffer.
The students further alleged that IUST lacks infrastructure and other basic facilities.
