New Delhi: The students and teachers of the Jawaharlal Nehru University on Monday boycotted classes amid standoff with the administration over the fee hike issue.

The classes were supposed to begin on Monday but could not start due to the collective boycott.

The students’ union had earlier said it will ensure registration by paying only the tuition fees and not the increased hostel charges but kept the decision on hold after it found that the administration had blocked the registration portal for many students.

The teachers’ association has also given a call for ‘non-cooperation’ in academic matters over a range of issues, including that of fee hike and the January 5 violence. Teachers and students have been demanding the sacking of Vice-Chancellor M Jagadesh Kumar.

  1. Education does not come cheap. Students must pay their fair share of expenses. Many students come from convent schools where they pay large tuition fees. The same people protest when the government charges few thousand in the university and then they have the audacity to complain why the world class facilities are not there. Imperial College in London charges eighteen lakhs Indian rupees for one year tuition only for its Masters courses.
