I am Farieha Akram Gilani, a
student of University of Central Punjab. I am doing BBA honors from UCP. There
are total of 8 semesters in BBA. I have covered all the eight semesters but I
was still left with 2 courses to complete credit hours that I was supposed to
take on in this summer semester (From 26th July till 30th September).
The registration for summer semester started on 23 July and I was allowed to
submit my fees till 27 July but here comes a leave for elections on 25th July
and then a weekend. I could not pay my tuition fee to the university. I was
facing serious family and financial issues , due to which I was not able to
manage my fees. But somehow I managed it on 1st August and rushed to university
for submitting it. I asked the registrar to give mechallan form, he refused. I
requested my program dean to allow me to get the challan form. He allowed me but
the registrar again refused to issue. I wrote an application to pro-rector of
UCP mentioning all the circumstances that I was facing that time but he also
just took it for granted. I have paid them 7 lac in four years and now they are
insulting me for just Rs 23000.
Today is Thursday, 9th August and I am still trying to get challan form because
it is a serious matter for my career. I was about to complete my graduation
degree in September,2018. But, now it has been prolonged till August,2019. It
seems to be a wastage of whole year for me. I am in top 10 students of my batch
but the University Management has done so badly with me that I am depressed at
this incident. I have spent four years of education at UCP with fees being
submitted on time. They did not help me for fees of only two courses.
Other than that management of UCP has each and everything in its control. After
so many requests and visits of different offices by me more than a week, nobody
is listening to me. I am ashamed at the institution where I have studied for
four years, they are just using us for money generation. They have no concern
with our problems or career. Our education system has become so pathetic that I
am just hopeless to get anymore good education in Pakistan. I am fed up with
their cruel attitudes as money makers.
I am not the only one who is facing this issue, there are many people in the
educational system who are facing these issues. After trying too much and
surviving a lot of depression, I thought of media platforms that are the best
ones to convey message and talk on it. It is a request to you to please raise
this issue on your media channel to strive for further suffering of students.
It is a very humble request to please consider this issue, it will not be useful
for me but also question our educationists about their terms and policies. If
you find it right, I am available anytime to give you all the relevant
