Various college students of the Indian Institute of Mass Communication (IIMC) on Monday staged a protest demanding reopening of the campus and waiving off the charges for the second semester.

The group of scholars of Hindi journalism, Urdu journalism, and Radio and Television departments of IIMC alleged that regardless of promising to carry offline courses within the second semester, the institute has been holding courses on-line since March 30.

“Large scale elections are being held in the country, rallies are being addressed, why are educational institutions being avoided… online studies of journalism which is a practical course is not possible. The students have read as much as they could read online. There are many practical classes that can only be learned offline,” the scholars mentioned within the assertion.

They additionally raised calls for to increase the length of the programs for just a few months and to waive off the charges for the second semester.

Since sensible courses couldn’t be held within the first semester because of the coronavirus outbreak, the protesters demanded the institute to make preparations for the scholars.

“Library should be opened for students throughout the week. All those students who have not received free-ship yet, should be given free-ship soon. Since the students have not used any campus resources in the first semester, half the amount taken in the first semester should be adjusted towards the fees of the second semester,” the assertion mentioned.

“If the institute does not meet their demands with immediate effect, they will continue their protest indefinitely,” it added.
