Students who have lost their parents, jobs, profession, etc can avail of concession by submitting their requests/applications along with all the relevant documents to their respective deans for consideration.
In another important decision, the university administration also decided to provide fee concessions to the tune of 25 per cent to some of the deserving students out of the funds given by the sponsoring body, Hamdard National Foundation.
Late fee fine on account of the delay in submission of their fees due to financial problems has been waived off for all the students. Fee submission in installments without levying any late fee fine has also been allowed. These concessions have been given on the recommendations of a duly constituted committee to the genuine and deserving students.
Vice-Chancellor Prof MA Jafri said: “We are waiving off the fee of Covid-19 affected students which will help them to pay for their education by offering access to our fund for benevolence, which helps students pay for fees and other university expenses.”
