20 thousand rupees fine for staging dharna, admission will be canceled for doing violence – News18 Punjab IG News

New Delhi- According to the new rules of Jawaharlal Nehru University (JNU), students can be fined Rs 20,000 for protesting in the campus and their admission can be canceled or fined Rs 30,000 for violence. The 10-page ‘Code of Discipline and Proper Conduct for JNU Students’ prescribes punishment for various acts such as protest and forgery and outlines the investigation process for infractions of discipline.

According to the document, these rules have come into effect on February 3. The rules came into force after protests against the showing of a controversial BBC documentary at the university. The document related to the rules states that it has been approved by the Executive Council. This council is the highest decision making body of the university.

However, members of the Executive Council told PTI that the matter was brought up as an additional agenda item and said the document was prepared for “court cases”. Vikas Patel, secretary of the Akhil Bharatiya Vidyarthi Parishad in JNU, called the new rules a ‘Tughlaq decree’.

To get the reaction of JNU Vice-Chancellor Shantishri D Pandit, ‘PTI-Bhasha’ sent messages and called her, but she did not respond. It may be mentioned that in January, there was a lot of commotion in JNU regarding the controversial BBC documentary on the Gujarat riots. JNU student organizations (ABVP and Left) also leveled several accusations against each other in the controversy over the screening of the documentary.
