JNUSU Response to ‘Circular on HLC Recommendations dt:25-11-2019’

The Revised Hostel Charge Recommended by HLC, 26 November 2019.

25 November 2019

The High Level Committee (HLC), set up by the JNU Administration, to discuss the Revised Hostel Manual and hostel charges as approved by the Executive Council (EC) on 13 November 2019 submitted its report to the Competent Authority on 25 November 2019.

The recommendations of the HLC have been approved by the Executive Council through circulation.

The HLC considered the feedback of the student representatives submitted to the Dean of Students’ Office through emails. The Committee has made significant recommendations that would benefit all the students in the university by addressing their concerns.

The following are the highlights of the Committee recommendations:

• While appreciating the 50 percent concession given to the eligible BPL category students in utility and service charges by the Executive Council, the HLC has strongly recommended that concessions in utility and service charges be given to all the students of the University.
• The committee scrutinized the estimated utility and service charges in the hostels, which are Rs.2000/- per month (including electricity and water charges of Rs. 300) and has recommended that Rs.1000 per month may be charged, in place of Rs.2000 per month, towards utility and service charges for all the students.
• The Committee has also recommended 75 percent reduction in utility and service charges for all the eligible BPL students who would be charged Rs.500 in place of Rs. 2000 per month.

It is expected that 75 percent concessions in utility and service charges to eligible BPL category students and 50 percent concessions to the rest will go down well with the student community and stakeholders at large.

The student strike has caused enormous academic loss to a vast number of students in the university. The administrative shutdown due to occupation of the Administration Building has compounded the woes of the JNU community. Further continuation of lockdown of Schools would be unacceptable national loss. Therefore, the Administration appeals to the agitating students to end their strike with immediate effect in the academic interest of their fellow students. The university’s image has already taken a beating and normalcy in the university must return at the earliest.

This is for the information of all that the HLC has unanimously recommended that the Revised Hostel Manual, as approved by the Executive Council in its 283rd Meeting held on 13 November 2019, be implemented from January 2020.
