NEW DELHI: Indian Institute of Mass Communication students said they have called off their four-day-long hunger strike against a fee hike after the administration accepted their demands on Friday, February 21, 2020.
“The last date for submission of second-semester fees has been extended up to March 31, 2020, or till the finalisation/notification of the new fee structure, whichever is later. It means the new deadline for submission of second-semester fees is the arrival/notification of new fee structure in IIMC. We hereby request all students not to pay fees till the new fee structure is notified/finalised,” they said.
“Regarding the committee which will decide our new fee structure, the administration agreed to share details of that committee with students and it also ensured students’ participation in that committee. Suspension of all the nine remaining students is revoked,” they added.
IIMC students had started the hunger strike against fee hike on Tuesday, February 18 and demanded an affordable fee structure.
