Scores of students from Kashmir University and its various affiliated college on Wednesday afternoon held a demonstration outside the Convocation Hall against a hike in their examination fees.
The protesters were carrying the placards that read: “Three hundred percent hike is unjustified, don’t make education business.”
The students said that the varsity has increased the fee from Rs 1150 to Rs 3375.
“Our exams are going to be held in the coming days and the increase in the fee is totally unaffordable. We can’t pay such a huge amount at once,” the protesting students told Greater Kashmir.
