Also, the introduction of students loan by the government in June led to an increase in compulsory fees for students across universities in the country.

 

According to some university’s vice chancellors, the schools were not properly funded by the government and they were left with no other option, so they had to increase fees so they can successfully meet the demand and needs of the university and also meet global standards.

Students of various campuses reacted to the sudden increment in fees by taking to the streets to protest, and the government couldn’t provide any help to the situation, as they told the students that, the student-loan was the only available solution to the hike in price.

Left with no other option, most of the Universities had to make payments easier for the students by providing the option of installment payment of fees and by helping indigent students to get scholarships, study work, etc
