The commission also sought to know what steps have been taken by the authorities of the Delhi University college to ensure equal hostel fees and non-discriminatory rules for girls and boys studying there.

Though the college in its response informed the commission steps were being taken to ensure non-discriminatory and equal rules for both boys and girls but DCW has received complaints about the college deciding to shut down the girl’s hostel.
