New Delhi: Following the suicide of a student allegedly over financial constraints, the Lady Sri Ram College has announced a reduction in fee for a few courses, setting up a committee to provide laptops and allowed some second-year students to reside in hostels.

LSR College Students' Union had earlier submitted a 12-point memorandum to the principal after the suicide of Aishwarya Reddy (19), a second-year student of the college due to financial hardships, college authorities announced that they had accepted some demands, including reducing the fee for courses, setting up a committee to provide laptops to students, and allowing some second-year students to reside in hostels. A document titled "response to the demands met by students", uploaded on the college website, read, "Given the fact that students are not able to avail certain facilities of the college due to being off-campus, the College has removed such charges from the fees this year. This has led to a substantial reduction in the fees… In addition, it is possible to pay the fee in instalments."

A revised fee notice states that the annual fee for all courses for second- and third-year students will now be Rs 7,970. LSR Students' Union general secretary Unnimaya said the fee ranged from Rs 12,000 to Rs 26,000 depending on the course.
