Students of Jawaharlal Nehru University (JNU), who will be registering for the forthcoming semester may not have to pay service or utility charges as part of their hostel fee, the Registrar said. But, they will still have to pay the increased room rent and medical fee.
The administration has also decided to extend the date for completion of academic requirements due to the boycott of examination by the students. Earlier, the assistant registrar (IHA) said in a circular earlier, “With reference to the approval of the Executive Council (EC)…the Revised Hostel Manual will be implemented from January 1, with deletion of Clause 2.6.1 (Norms Governing Hostel Life) and Clause 3.6.2 (Dining Hall).”
The revised fee would include room rent of Rs 3,600 per semester for all students except BPL students, who have to pay Rs 1,800 per semester. Whereas for a double-seater room, the fee is halved and an additional Rs 500 medical fee has to be paid per semester.
“Students shall submit copy of BPL certificate to the hostel office while claiming concession for BPL category. In case the students are unable to submit the BPL certificate, they may produce it later in a month’s time to claim the refund,” the circular further stated. It also added that BPL students “having JRF, SRF or any other equivalent scholarship/fellowship are not entitled for concession.”
In another circular, JNU registrar Pramod Kumar said registration for the winter semester would be held from January 1-5.
