Once again, the state government goes on the path of collecting money directly from college and university students.
In the first phase, after this decision of the state government came into force in MBB University, Vidyajyoti School, now the state law university has decided to directly collect the huge amount of money from the students.
However, in 2022, National Law University was started at Narsinghgarh in Agartala with a statewide campaign.
However, nothing has been released by the state government and the higher education department about the amount of cash that the students of the state will need to study in the law university at this time.
Only there was propaganda that the students of the state will get the opportunity to study BA LLB (Hons) and LLM courses in law university.
But now National Law University Tripura has published advertisement for admission in the current academic year for undergraduate and postgraduate courses in law.
And seeing the course fees in this advertisement, the students and parents of the state have no way to study in the law university.
Although the law university is completely under the state government. But poor, middle class, lower middle class, families of the state have no opportunity to study in this university.
According to the sources of higher education department, students have to pay Rs 1 lakh 81 thousand every year for the five-year BA LLB (Hons) course in the only law university of the state.
For study in the two-year LLM course Students have to pay Rs 1 lakh 51 thousand every year.
Along with this, each student to pay an additional Rs 10,000 for hostel and library. Rs 9 lakhs 5 thousand only for the five year BA LLB Honors course excluding other fees.
Course fee including other fees is around 10 lakh rupees. LLM course fee for two years is Rs 3 lakh 20 thousand.
One can easily imagine what dire fate awaits the students of the state. Course fees are higher than the state government medical college in the law university! It should be noted that students can apply for admission to the law university till October 20 in exchange of Rs 1,000.
Meanwhile, the students complain that the state government’s funds in the education sector are empty. The students studying in schools, colleges and universities are paying for it. Higher education including school education is being closed due to lack of funds. Students are disappointed with the course fees of state law university. There is even anger among them.
