Taking into account the promotion of students facing extreme uncertainties and mental pressure due to lockdown, the National Students Union of India (NSUI) has urged concerned authority to waive their fees under financial packages provided by the central government.
In an appeal to chief minister of Nagaland, Neiphiu Rio, the NSUI national secretary, NSUI Nagaland state in-charge, Kabir Ahamad stated that, through online survey it has been found that present experimentation with online classes has not been successful across Nagaland. It stated that this was because students belonging to interior rural areas were facing difficulty with connectivity making online classes and scope of online examinations a luxury available to only few.
Pointing out that hostels have been transformed into quarantine centres and students coming back to reside in such zones would put their lives in danger, the NSUI urged for option of compulsory promotion of students in 1st and 2nd year while final year students be allowed to graduate based on previous years with additional 10% marks.
It also requested to waive off interest on education loans for at least 6 months while providing an extra 6 months to the start of repayment date of such students so that such loans by lending institutions do not turn into NPAs.
