Chennai: Tamil Nadu Chief Minister Jayalalithaa on Monday ordered provision of tuition fee concession to first generation graduate students of Annamalai University.

The move would benefit 1,150 students, mostly belonging to families of farm labourers who have joined the university to pursue various courses, an official release here said.

The Chief Minister has allocated Rs 1.66 Crore for providing fee concession, the release added.

Last year, the university was brought under government control through an enactment in the State legislature after allegations of mismanagement and abuse of power.
