Students pay fees during admission at department, hall and also pay fees in favour of the treasurer office account. Moreover, TK  600-900 has to be paid as fees during seat allotment in every dormitory of the campus. All those fees are unauthorized, sources said.
 Students alleged, the dormitory authority forced to pay additional money hanging notice from student during receiving registration card from hall. Different hall authorities collect different amounts of fees according to their provost suit.

Prince Mahbub, a first year student of Philosophy said, the authority collect huge amount money from us during enrolment at the university and on collection registration card from hall. As we are new in the campus so we don't know the real fact. Hence paying money, we have nothing to do.

However, she failed to show any document copy how fees will be taken from first year students of the campus.
In condition of anonymity, a former pro vice chancellor of the university claimed that "without approbation of syndicate and finance committee, collection money from first year is illegal and it is offends of hall authority."

Director of audit cell of the university Niyamul Hauqe denied the offense and said generally education ministry authority audit the matter. He blaming the education ministry said, "As they come to the campus after two or three years for audit and it is their responsibility. If any allegation comes to us from the student, we investigate the matter," he added.
