The JNUSU accused over administration that they are forcing so many students to pay the increased fees ahead of registration for the winter semester where the JNU student union has announced a “major rollback” in early November after leading massive protests against a fee hike.
last night so many students of Jawahar Lal Nehru University on social media, the student union has said “some students show(ed) willingness to register after rollback by paying unchanged tuition fees” only to find the university had blocked payment… until they pay increased fees”.
Student union has claimed that comes only days after VC of JNU Jagadeesh M Kumar told officials from the Education Ministry that who had negotiated the “major rollback” – “all discussions on record have been followed (and are) being implemented in totality”.
“Although some JNU students tried to show their willingness to register after rollback, by paying only the unchanged tuition fees, the administration has now suddenly blocked fee payment for the rest, until they pay the increased fees in the illegal IHA manual,” the Student Union has tweeted.
“…students with pending inquiries have been academically suspended even before inquiry process is complete. This is blatant disregard of goodwill gesture. Hence, students will not pay any fees/register. We are done making any compromise till this rogue VC is removed,” the second tweet of JNUSU read.
On Sunday a the JNUSU VC Saket Moon twitted and claimed by posting a screenshot of the university’s fee payment portal which shows: “You are not eligible to register for this semester… Academically suspended by Chief Proctor Office”.
From last three moths JNU students are protesting against fee hike and hike in hostel fees and utility payments. The students said the increase – around 300 per cent – “will affect an overwhelming number of students”.
Here the protesters which have been led by left backed student Union, are constantly refusing to get back and still demanding total rollback over fee hike policy.
