This was almost a kind of blackmailing. We had no choice but to sit for the placement. And above that, we were made to learn C programming language in 2 days, with a lecture of 2 hours a day. What on earth made them think it was ever possible?
So basically, the faculties were deciding in which company we were supposed to sit. Never even my parents had done this, who are they (faculties) to take decision on this subject?
Now this is all one person’s view, which is subjective, let’s go in an objective way. Here are some stats
Tuition Fees – 1.85 lacs
Books Fees – 15 thousand, which just included 6–7 third class quality books, and a drafter and a cheap geometry box, which broke in the first 2 months of usage. We didn’t get the drafter and the geometry box in the 2nd year.
CDC Fees – Another 15 thousand, which included only 2 books of Quantitative Aptitude and 1 book on Verbal Aptitude
Hostel And Mess Fees – Approximately 98 thousand. A room which was meant for 2 people previously had started accommodating 3 people
Laundry Fees – 5/6 thousand (can’t remember it exactly). It was also compulsory, and we were not allowed to give more that 14 clothes in a week, which included only 1 bed sheet. If clothes were extremely, dirty, they would return them without even washing. Many a times clothes were misplaced.
Examination Fees – Approximately 2.3 thousand. This is to be paid before every semester exam.
Now the hefty fines.
ID Card Lost – 1500. By making a DD, they won’t even accept cash.
Renewal of ID Card – 1000. Same process
Exam Admit Card Lost – 760
If caught cheating/malpractice in the end semester – 10 thousand. All the papers will be cancelled.
