YIN initiates ‘Say No To Fee Waiver’ drive to help needy girl students
Mumbai: The youth of the State has been calling for more and more girl students to come forward to help the poor and needy girls to take up higher education. Especially, those girl students, who have received a scholarship but can pay their fees, should volunteer to pay for the poor girls. Now, Young Inspirators Network (YIN) has taken the initiative to help such needy girl students.
Urja Bharatiya, who is a student of Std XI in Ruia College here, has written to State Education Minister Vinod Tawde that the State’s decision of waiving off her education fees was appreciable and welcomed, but her parents are completely capable of paying her fees.
“The high-income families, who can pay their wards’ fees, should not opt for the fee waiver.
Prime Minister Narendra Modi had made this request to the masses. And thus, a call for ‘Say No To Fee Waiver’ should be initiated,” Urja stated in her letter to Tawde.
Reacting to this, Tawde in a tweet, applauded the sincerity of Urja Bharatiya who gave up her tuition fee subsidy and the education department is working on its proper utilisation.
With this, the fact that those who do not want the fee subsidy can give back the money and that amount can be utilised to help the needy students to complete their education. This demand is being made by the youth across the State.
YIN, along with all its leaders and team members, is taking up this noble initiative, under which the members will visit colleges and universities to create more awareness among the students. The society and student community are waiting for the government’s action to this cause.
“If my honesty and contribution help one of my needy sisters, then we should all raise our voices for this cause. When other students will come to know about this noble initiative and how it can help someone complete her studies, all of them will surely support it. The low higher education rate is due to financial situation of the families.”

“Girls from many of the financially stable families who get the subsidy in fees take it. On the other hand, the needy and poor girl students have to struggle to complete their education. I, on behalf of YIN, request the students and families from the high-income group to give up the fee waiver for the education of the needy girls and be an inspiration for the society.”
