LCWU students criticized administration over fee structure
Lahore: The BSc (Hons) students of Lahore College for Women University (LCWU) staging a protest demonstration on Monday strongly criticised the university administration for increase in fee.

They staged the demo outside the university campus on Jail Road. Traffic mess was also witnessed on Jail Road and others adjacent roads for quite some time as a result of the demonstration. The students chanted slogans against the university administration and demanded withdrawal of the decision regarding increase in fee and its collection on semester basis.

The protesting students told the reporters that earlier around Rs 14,000 were being charged on annual basis from the students while after the increase the total fee per year was over Rs 20,000 per student of different BSc (Hons) programmes.

They demanded the government take notice of the situation and provide relief to them as the increase would certainly lead to financial problems for their families.

LCWU Vice Chancellor Prof Dr Bushra Mateen was not available for comment. However, when contacted, the university registrar, Shaista Vine, said the university finance and planning committee as well as varsity syndicate had approved the increase in fee due to increasing inflation.

She said the university had no other source of income except the students' fee, adding that after increase in the number of faculty members and constant increase in prices of different items, the increase in fee was inevitable.
