VADODARA: The MS University has dropped the proposal of hiking fees of five self-financed courses offered by its Faculty of Social Work after a senate member opposed the move.

The university had earlier decided to introduce a sharp hike in fees collected from students from the current academic year.

According to senator Kapil Joshi, who had earlier registered his protest against the university’s decision of charging exorbitant fees from students, the university has now started collecting fees as per the last year’s fee structure. Joshi on Wednesday said that the university had proposed a fee hike of Rs 10,000 in the masters of human resource management (MHRM) course which would have increased the course fee from Rs 55,840 to Rs 65,840.

Similarly, the university wanted to hike the fees of bachelor of social work (BSW) course by Rs 5,000 which would have increased the fees of the course from Rs 55,140 to Rs 60,140.

The university also wanted to hike fees of three post graduate diplomas courses including that in industrial relations and personnel management (PG IRPM), post graduate diploma in corporate social responsibility (PG CSR) and post graduate diploma in human resource management (PG DHRM) by Rs 2,000 each.

The fee of PG IRPM and PG CSR would have increased from Rs 20,340 to Rs 22,340 while that of PG DHRM would have increased from Rs 23,340 to Rs 25,340 after the hike. “I had opposed the fee hike as last year itself the faculty had made a profit of Rs 44.64 lakh from self-financed courses. The university is not a profit making institute.

It is meant to provide affordable education to the needy,” he said, welcoming the university’s decision of dropping the fee hike.
