Why JNU students are protesting: Things to know
JNU students protest: Main points
Apart from the hostel fee hike, deadline for students to return to hostels and dress code were the major sticking points against which the university students were protesting.
On Wednesday, the JNU administration decided to partially roll back the hostel fee hike "only for students below the poverty line category" and removed the provisions for curfew timings and dress code from the draft. The decisions, including partial roll back of the fee hike, were taken at university's Executive Council (EC) meet.
No changes, however, were made in the hostel fee structure for BPL students who avail scholarships and for non-BPL students.
The one-time (refundable) mess security deposit for all categories of students was rolled back and the fee would now be Rs 5,500, instead of the proposed Rs 12,000.
Here are the provisions suggested in the draft:
"Students who are found outside their respective hostel premises after the stipulated time and involving in any violence or otherwise disturbing the peace on campus and privacy of JNU community will be evicted from hostel forthwith apart from any other disciplinary action by the University."
