The free courses at the Indian Institute of Space Science and Research at Valiyamalai, Thiruvananthapuram, the Department of Space, which is open to students from BTech to PhD, ends free of charge. The Center has confirmed that the space department’s order was issued in New Delhi on June 30 by suggesting that it is not possible to go ahead and find its own source of income. This comes in the wake of Union Finance Minister Nirmala Sitharaman’s announcement on the fourth day of the stimulus package that the space will be intensified.
Now more than 800 students are studying at the Space Institute. It is hoped that both these and those who are enrolled this academic year will have to pay a heavy fee. The free study is done by paying back the fees charged by students each semester on a semester fee. Students who have secured B.Tech admission must pay a semester fee of Rs 48,000. Fees will be refunded if you achieve 75% marks in the semester exam. OBC and SC / ST candidates have scored 65% marks. The talented students from the IT rank list do not get any fee for admission. Beyond that, you can get a job at ISRO after studying.
Semester fees are calculated at the lowest rates, including hostel accommodation and meals. According to the current fee, a BTech student will have to pay Rs 3,87,200 for eight semesters. It is hoped that the M.Tech and PhD studies with scholarship will not continue. The Space Institute was established in 2007 as a designated university under the Department of Space to ensure the high manpower required for India’s space research. Established at VSSC Campus in Tumba in 2007, when Dr.G.Madhavan Nair was the Chairman of ISRO, it was shifted to a 100-acre campus at Valiyamalai in 2010. What is shocking is that the first victims of privatization in space research were students.
