Agreement to withdraw increased fee

Chitwan, Sept 21  An agreement has been reached between the Chitwan Medical College and agitating students to return the increased fee charged on the students and to run classes in the existing rate. The fee taken earlier will be returned within 30 days.


The agreement was reached between the two sides after a day-long negotiation at the District Administration Office, Chitwan today. As a result, students will withdraw all their programmes of protest with effect from tomorrow, according to Chief District Officer Jitendra Basnet.


The students had brought the Medical College into a standstill in protest against the college administration’s decision to charge fee more than that determined by the government. As a result, the College remained closed since the past 19 days.


A total of 2,000 students are studying in the college that runs classes in 26 different faculties. The college had been charging 1.2 million to 1.5 million rupees more from the students.
