Fees waived for students of flood-hit Kodagu

Mangalore varsity to provide document copies for free, conduct special exams

Mangalore University will take a host of measures, including waiving of examination, tuition and other fees, to help college students, whose families have lost properties in the recent landslips and floods in Kodagu.

According to Kishore Kumar C.K., acting Vice-Chancellor of the university, attendance will be given to students who could not attend classes owing to the floods.

The university will give copies of education-related documents, such as marks cards, for free to those who have lost them in the floods. Special examinations will be held for students in colleges where lessons could not be completed on time.

Mr. Kumar told The Hindu that the university has provided free accommodation to students who have lost their houses, in the Field Marshal K.M. Cariappa College in Madikeri. There are 20 such students in the college now.

He said some colleges in Dakshina Kannada and Udupi have come forward to admit such students who cannot continue their present education in Kodagu thanks to road-connectivity issues. The university will approve the admission of such students.

Those education institutes have come forward to provide free hostel facility to such students.

Mr. Kumar said the university will call a meeting of principals of all 20 colleges in Kodagu on September 6 to sort out issues relating to classes, conduct of examinations and approval of admissions.

Many colleges under the university are now collecting funds to help students of Kodagu.

He said the social work students of the university will conduct field survey in Kodagu and come out with a report on measures to be taken to bring back the life to normality.

The report will be submitted to the government. The university was now collecting data of the students who have been affected. The university will conduct National Service Scheme camps in Kodagu to help in restoration activities.
