JNU fee hike

Delhi saw JNU's Students Union protest since October 28 after the University increased the hostel's fees. They were also protesting against the curfew timings and dress code at the hostel.

Students from the Jawaharlal Nehru University took to the streets to protest over the 300% fee hike. The protest began after the University's hostel saw an increase in its fee, which has not been revised in over a decade. The registrar justified this development by saying that the university has been paying the electricity and other miscellaneous expenses from the University grants. They said that the fee hike will help them in upgrading the hostel. Students protested against JNU fee hike stating that most of the students come from lower-income families and increasing the fee will impact them badly. As a result of the hike, students will have to pay Rs. 600 per month rent for a single room against the earlier Rs. 20 per month and for a double-sharing room Rs. 300 per month from Rs. 10 per month.
