After a lockdown and mass-boycott of exams for the two months against the fee-hike and utility charges in hostels, Jawahar Lal Nehru University declared on Monday that it is ready to implement the new hostel manual from Wednesday. Further, the Vice-Chancellor has appealed the students to call off the strikes and complete their semester exams to begin the winter semester. The circular was issued following a meeting between all the three Rectors of the varsity, the university’s Registrar, the Deans of Schools and Chairpersons of the Special Centres.

According to India Today’s report, the vice-chancellor, Mamidala Jagadesh Kumar, said, “Although the university administration and the relevant bodies followed the statutory process for revising the room rent and hostel charges, a false impression was created as if the administration was bringing about these changes to harm the students”. Moreover, he added, that the increase in the hostel charges was because of the fiscal pressure on the University budget and to be able to provide comfortable accommodation to the students.

The notice further mentioned that the students that have completed the academic requirements of Monsoon semester are urged to register for the next semester, between January 4 to January 5. On the other hand, the students who haven’t completed their academic requirements will be provided with a provisional registration in the same period. However, they are required to complete the Monsoon semester by January 20, 2020, to validate their provisional registration. The Dean and the Chairperson have confirmed that the evaluation and results of the provisionally registered students will be completed by January 20.

A literature student and a writer enmeshed in the politics of illusion and reality. I love writing poetry, articles, and blogs. Reading fiction and debating the non-fiction; music and food are the footholds of my self, in constant flux between real and poetic. I believe life is not invested only in the visible truth, the stone, the stars and you. There are truths in fiction, ghosts, myths, and fairies.
