Don't gate crash weddings or disciplinary actions will be taken, NIT Kurukshetra tells students
On March 16, the Chief Warden (Boys) of National Institute of Technology (NIT), Kurukshetra, issued the circular
After receiving complaints from the nearby areas about wedding crashers, the National Institute of Technology (NIT) in Kurukshetra has warned its students against “gate crashing” weddings in the holy city.
On March 16, the Chief Warden (Boys) of National Institute of Technology (NIT), Kurukshetra, issued a circular which said, “It has been reported that some students of our institute are going to attend marriage parties without having an invitation. This type of behaviour is considered highly unethical/ uncalled for, immoral and unwanted.”
“All the students are informed that they should desist from doing such type of uncivilised activities. Disciplinary action will be taken against students doing such type of activities as per institute rules,” it stated.
Although the circular did not spell what the punishment will be, it usually involves a fine or suspension of the student from the hostel for a period of time, said sources.
“The circular has been issued after receiving complaints from the neighbourhood areas about students gatecrashing weddings. There is nothing wrong in issuing this circular as it’s not a good thing to gate-crash parties. As NIT is a reputed institute, this type of behaviour brings a bad name to it. The students studying here should not be indulging in these activities,” said an official on the condition of anonymity.
