Meanwhile, the ADC administration has sent a letter to the state government to settle the outstanding college fees of B.Ed and D.El.Ed students within the next one month.

TIPRA Motha chairman and MDC Pradyot Kishore Debbarman in a press conference said that 51 tribal students have been pursuing B.Ed courses in foreign colleges with the financial assistance of the Tribal Welfare department of the state government.

First, the second-year college fees have been settled by the state government on time. But the third and fourth-year college fees have not been paid by the state government to date. Students have repeatedly approached the state government for payment of college fees. But the state government is not paying the arrears. The college authorities are not willing to hand over the certificate to the students till the fees are paid.

Meanwhile, the state government has announced the date of the TET examination. They will not be able to sit for the exam without a certificate. Students will be deprived of the opportunity for the TET examination. Debbarman further said that if the state government fails to pay the college fees of the students, then the ADC administration will pay the fees.
