NewsMobile fact-checked the post and found the above posts to be misleading.
Following the protests, Jawaharlal Nehru University Executive Council partially rollbacked the hostel fee increase.
In a press statement released on November 13, 2019, JNU administration rollbacked the Mess Advance to Rs 5,500, instead of Rs 12,000.’
Here are the exiting and revised charges:
The university also released a document named ‘Revised JNU Hostel Manual- Fact Sheet‘ to clear the air around the whole incident and provide more clarity on the matter. It contains the entire procedure of fee hike, from discussions to notices to final fee hike after partial rollback.
The above information proves that the viral posts with hostel charges are false.
