The Jawaharlal Nehru Technological University, Hyderabad (JNTU-H) has taken cognisance of the constant discord between the university colleges and students over a range of issues, including the academic and hostel facilities.

In a notice issued to the principals of JNTUH colleges by the registrar on Saturday, June 15, the university advised the college principals to attend to the issues related to students "from time to time and address issues immediately which can be resolved with minimum care without any delay".

The circular also instructed the students to submit a representation to the respective college principals related to the academic and hostel issues.

Further, warning of a strict action against students for resorting to agitation or protest over any given issue, the circular said that the students must allow a feasible time for a given issue to be resolved.

"Students are advised not to take any agitation/rally instantly, which causes disturbance to the healthy academic environment in the campus. If any such incidents take place hereafter in the campus, it will be reviewed seriously, which will come under the undisciplined attitude of the students," the circular said.

A senior JNTUH official speaking to The New Indian Express said, "We have been facing the challenge of students taking to protests over even minor issues without allowing time for the college administration to address the issue. This has been disturbing the academic environment in the campuses and affecting other students as well who are nowhere involved. We are very much willing to resolve the issues of the students but we want the students to maintain discipline and decorum in the institutions and not take to agitation even over slightest of the issues."

The notice further stressed that if the issues were not resolved at the unit or college level, students can submit a copy of the representation to the registrar for necessary action, and that any academic matters related to the issues should be submitted through respective Head of Departments (HoDs) whereas the hostel related issues to be submitted through warden of the respective hostels.
