JNU students' union resents fee hike

New Delhi
4 Dec 2018

The Jawaharlal Nehru Students' Union (JNUSU) alleged Monday that the administration has hiked fees for basic documentation like collecting no dues, degrees and migration certificates. In its Academic Council meeting in October, the varsity had approved a proposal to hike fees for collecting no dues, degree certificates, migration, marksheets, duplicate copies of certificates, an official from the varsity said. The JNU administration in a unilateral imposition of its anti-student polices has now doubled the fees for basic documentation, the students' union said. It is unfortunate that from the time Mamidala Jagadesh Kumar took over as the V-C, JNU is seeing privatisation, commercialisation and corporatization of public spaces, they added.
