Registration of 300 students blocked due to ‘fake Proctor inquiries’, claims JNUSU

NEW DELHI: The Jawaharlal Nehru University Students’ Union (JNUSU) has alleged that the varsity administration has blocked the registration of 300 students on the basis of ‘fake Proctor inquiries’.

The union had on Saturday asked students of the university to pay their academic tuition fee but not the hiked hostel fee.

“Today the Vice-Chancellor first blocked the fee payment portal and then blocked the payment of tuition fees. It is clear that the VC was lying through the teeth when he said students want to register but are not being allowed to by protesters,” JNUSU president Aishe Ghosh said.

She said the VC has also blocked the registration of 300 students based on fake proctor enquiries which are not even completed.

“The truth is that it is the administration which does not want students to register and is blocking their registration,” she said.

JNUSU vice president Saket Moon said that in the meetings held in HRD ministry, it was decided that the administration would take a lenient view on the students’ protest and not take action against them.

He said many students, who opened the portal for registration found they had been academically suspended and could not register.

He said the JNUSU had softened its stand by saying that they would register by paying the old fees but that has been kept on hold.

On Sunday, the administration extended the date for the winter semester registration till January 15.
