Now, certificates and mark sheets to cost double at JNU. JNUSU says they weren't consulted
The fee structure is supposed to be discussed at the Academic meeting in the presence of the Student Union but they claim they were never called for the meeting
When you apply for basic documents like mark sheets, migration certificates and copies of answer sheets at Jawaharlal Nehru University, you will now have to pay double. The notice issued by the Deputy Registrar states that the revised fee structure was approved at the Academic Council meeting held previously. The Student Union claims they were not invited for the meeting despite it being a rule for them to be present during such discussions.
While the cost of the provisional degree certificate and migration certificate has increased from 50 rupees to 100 rupees, the duplicate copy of the consolidates mark sheets has gone up from 100 to 200 rupees. So has the cost of duplicate copies of provisional certificates and semester grade certificates. The duplicate degree certificate cost has increased from Rs 200 to Rs 500 while the duplicate migration certificate has gone from Rs 200 to Rs 400.
The Student Union is raising their voice against this sudden doubling of fees and is calling it an unfair move. They raised two main points with regard to the issue — the students claim they weren't invited to the JNUSU Academic Council meeting when the fee revisal was discussed. The second point they raised was that the agenda for the fee hike was placed in the second part of the meeting which is against the rules. According to the norms of the meeting, all student and fee-related issues need to be discussed in part A of the meeting. "The prospectus fee and the hostel fee was hiked this year by the current VC. Most fee hikes seem to be happening under his leadership," a student leader said.
