A social media post uploaded by the students of Sathyabama university through an Instagram page named “Sathyabama4laiph”, has grabbed the attention of the online users. The post suggests that the college management is forcing students to pay fees for the next academic year in order to let them write the current online semester exam. They also could be seen complaining against the management for charging the same fees amidst the pandemic situation, despite of conducting classes only through zoom calls without transportation.
After the attention provided by the Tamil nadu government for the issue that took place in PSBB school, many other students from various other schools and colleges are raising their voices to be heard. Several arrests were made against the miscreants who harassed the students physically and mentally, after the PSBB issue came to light. Now, the allegation made by the students of Sathyabama university has gained the attention of social media platforms which is evident through the tweets, posts and screen shots that are doing rounds.
The post suggests that students are forced to pay Rs. 2, 05,000 to attend the zoom classes that are being conducted by the college management. It is notable that students are not using the college transportation since the start of the COVID 19 pandemic. However, while students paid the fees for the current academic, the college management, reportedly refused to give login credentials to students who didn’t pay the the fees for the next academic year.
“Login credentials have been shared to students who paid fee for upcoming academic year and rest of the students who didn’t pay the fee are not allowed to take the exam” post of the Instagram page “sathyabama4laiph” reads. It further said that the management is forcing students to pay fees amidst the pandemic situation and the students also reported that they didn’t get proper response from the faculties when they raised question about it.
Students who didn’t get login credentials from the management to write the current semester exams, are depressed and hoping to get it, according to the post. Here’s the post that is doing rounds in social media platforms :

Few tweets of the students suggests that the management has released the login credentials few hours after the complaint was made in social media. However, students still sharing tweets, expressing their dejection over the management.
Another victory for students, within a couple of hours of our info being brought the management released all the login ids… But really is this what they want to teach us?#Sathyabama #sathyabamaUniversity #FeesBurden #management— Appu V (@viniyadas) June 2, 2021
