No Hall-tickets for a Thousand
Shaik Chinna Khadar Vali is a second-year student. A meritorious student having scored over 97 pc in first year, Chinna has been visiting the board’s office for the past two days as she did not receive her hall-ticket.
Chinna’s father Shaik Khadar Ali said that they had paid the fee well in advance of the deadline at the corporate college where his daughter studied. But she did not receive hall ticket yet.Not just her, scores of others too have not received their hall-tickets till now and run the risk of losing a year for no fault of theirs.
Claiming that they had paid examination fee before the deadline, the students and parents complained that they had not got any response from the board.
A students’ organisation, Telangana Vidyarthi Parishad (TGVP), staged a protest on the issue at the board’s office on Saturday.
TGVP representatives said that there were more than a thousand students in Telangana who had not received their hall-tickets.
“Even on Saturday, the Andhra Pradesh Intermediate Board is issuing hall-tickets if students pay fine. But Telangana Board officials are not providing the facility,” said Prashant, working president of TGVP. The managements of private colleges, whose students are facing the problem, also visited the board’s office.
