Telangana State - Instructions to the colleges Regarding Withholding of Original Certificates of The Students

Telangana State (TS) : It has come to the attention of the Government that certain private colleges are withholding the original certificates of students on the pretext of not receiving fee reimbursement from the Government.

Withholding of original certificates will have significant implications for the students, especially when they need to present these documents to join for higher education, applying or joining for jobs and other purposes.

Further, in terms of UGC (Grievance Redressal of students) Regulations 2018 the colleges are barred from withholding or refusing to return any document in the form of certificates of degree , diploma or any other award or other document deposited with it by a students for the purposes of seeking admission in such institution, with a view to induce or compel such student to pay any fee or fees in respect of any course or program of study which such student does not intend to pursue.

Therefore, I am by direction request the Universities to address/ instruct to all affiliated Private Colleges under its jurisdiction not to insist payment of Tuition Fee from the students who are eligible for fee reimbursement and not to deny issuing certificates on the pretext of not receiving fee reimbursement from the Government. It is not a healthy practice. Such colleges may be blacklisted and shall not be considered for free reimbursement, which will also affects affiliation of such colleges.

The Colleges shall be directed to follow the instructions of the Government scrupulously and failure in this regard will be viewed seriously and stringent action will be initiated against such colleges.
