Hyderabad: College aimed to avoid paying fees

The college gave all assurances to students in every way.

Hyderabad: Court case proves to be a stumbling block in issuing hall-tickets to nearly 250 Sri Vasavi College, Vanasthalipuram Intermediate students. Principal-cum-owner V. Srinivas alias Seenaiah blamed the Intermediate Board in the High Court but the judge ruled in favour of the government department directing him to comply with board exam fee norms and pay the late fees.

The students and parents took to streets demanding hall-tickets.The college had a week’s time after court judgment to pay Rs 7 lakh. According to officials, Srinivas wanted a face-off between students and board hoping that the board would be pressurised to issue hall-tickets taking the future of students in mind.

Board Secretary A. Ashok said, “He could have paid in September without fine but went to Court only in February, with late fee touching Rs 5000 per student."
The students did not approach the board even when the practical exams were not held from February 3-20 that went in the college’s favour. The college gave all assurances to students in every way.
