The University Grants Commission (UGC) notifies all the higher education institutes in India to refund the full amount that the students had paid, if they withdraw their admissions or migrate till October 31, 2022. This notification by UGC had been issued as a special case to avoid the financial hardships of the parents.
However, the universities and colleges can charge a processing fee, which should not be more than 1000 rupees, if the admissions are cancelled or withdrawn between October 31 and December 31, 2022.
The statement issued by the UGC read, “It has been decided by UGC that full refund of fees should be made by the higher educational institutions on account of all cancellations of admissions/ migrations of students up to October 31, 2022 for the academic session 2022-23 as a special case.”
This notification is in the wake of the delay of admission procedures for several entrance examinations that may continue up to October 2022.
