Srinagar, Sept 20: Students of Government Boys Higher Secondary School Qalamabad in Mawer Handwara Sunday alleged they are being charged rupees 50 for bonafide certificates and appealed authorities to look into the matter.
A group of students said that this is the only institute who is charging fee for issuance of bonafide certificates.
They said how the said institution can charge students in absence of any Government order.
