'For hostel maintenance': HRD Minister makes case for JNU fee hike

Dec 05, 2019 18:39 IST

HRD Minister Ramesh Pokhriyal told Parliament on Thursday that the fee hike in JNU was effected in order to meet the increased expenditure on maintenance of hostels and to run them on a "no-profit-no-loss" basis. In a written reply to a question in the Rajya Sabha over the JNU hostel fee hike, which has led to an agitation by students, the minister said the university increased the room rents after around 40 years. The ministry has now constituted a high-powered committee to restore normal functioning in the university. The panel submitted its report last week.
