PUBLISH DATE 11th October 2018

Students will also get the fees paid as refund of they opt out of the programme

Students seeking admission in higher institutions of learning need not submit any original academic and personal certificate at the time of submission of admission forms and they would also be able to get the fees paid as refund if they opt out of the programme, according to a new notification from the University Grants Commission (UGC).

“From the next academic session, it will become mandatory for students to submit self-attested academic credentials along with admission form,” the Human Resources Development Minister, Prakash Javadekar, briefed the media about the new notification.

At the time of admission, the college will verify the original marksheet but will return the original document to the student. As per the new notification, 100 per cent fees would be returned in case a student decides to withdraw within 15 days of the notified last date of admission.

“Not more than 5 per cent of the fees paid by the student, subject to a maximum of Rs 5,000 would be deducted as processing fee,” Javadekar said.

Within 15 days before the last date, the refund would 90 per cent, within 15 days after the last date of admission, it would be 80 per cent and between 16 and 30 days after the due date, the refund would be 50 per cent.

However, no fees would be returned if a student withdraws after 30 days of the notified last date of admission. The refund has to be made within 15 days of receipt of written application from the student, Javdekar said.

If the institute fails to refund the fee, strict punitive action will be taken by the UGC against defaulting higher education institutions.

The notification shall be applicable to undergraduate, postgraduate and research programmes run by universities and deemed universities.
