"We sent a letter to the Mauritius Qualifications Authority (MQA) and the legal representative of the students. We agreed to pay about $ 7,000 to each student to cover the cost of the course. However, we emphasize that none of them is eligible for a refund.
The authorities agree on this point, "said TP Singh. The director of the OIBS adds: "To save the image of the institution and that of Maurice as a 'knowledge hub' and to maintain the confidence of Indian and Mauritian authorities, we preferred to repay. There is no need to keep these students in Mauritius may do more harm to the image of the institution and the country. It is on a humanitarian basis that we do this. Payment shall be made within six weeks. "
Students themselves, are delighted with this news. However, they ask for a return ticket to their country and also the money to live in Mauritius until six weeks before the payment is made. "We have nothing to eat. We call assistance to Mauritius, "says Narayan Gautam, spokesman for foreign students. TP Singh emphasized that "OIBS agreed to assist financially in the coming weeks in Mauritius.
However, there is no question of paying more money for their tickets, because we are not guilty. "In addition, foreign students enrolled in Dimensions International Education Group (DIEG) Pamplemousses still awaiting a response from the management of the institution and the authorities. "We're lucky that Mauritius offers us dinner because we have no money. In addition, without a work permit, we can not work and get paid, "they say.
