Divyang (specially abled) students who fail in their exams at Dr Shakuntala Misra National Rehabilitation University will not be eligible for the university’s free hostel and mess facilities.
Vice chancellor prof Nishith Rai chaired an important meeting on Wednesday to deliberate on this and other new rules governing hostel allotment and occupancy.
The new hostel regulations were approved in the meeting after the discussion, said Prof AP Tiwari, academic advisor to vice chancellor and spokesperson for the university.
Only those specially abled students, who clear their exams and have at least 75% attendance, will get the free facilities. The hostel allotment will be done on merit.
Only those local divyang students who live over 20 km from the university will get hostel facilities. Local non-divyang students will not get hostel facilities.
The university has fixed the maximum stay permitted in hostels.
Students pursuing a diploma can stay in hostels for two years, those doing graduation can be there for three years, postgraduate students for two years and PhD scholars for three years. Meals will be served according to a daily pre-charted menu.
The food quality in the mess will be constantly monitored. The regulations also provide for strict action against those indulging in indiscipline and unlawful activities. FIR will be lodged against such students at the nearest police station.
The students and their parents will be required to give an undertaking with respect to adherence to discipline and anti ragging rules. The new hostel regulations were approved in the meeting after a threadbare discussion on various facets of hostel affairs, said Prof AP Tiwari, academic advisor to vice chancellor and media spokesperson of the university.
The meeting was attended by registrar Amit Kumar Singh, finance officer Shivakant Shukla, dean (academics) AP Tiwari, controller of examination AK Dubey, proctor P Rajivanayan, additional chief provost Puspendra Misra, provost (girls’ hostel) Kaushiki Singh, staff officer to the VC and superintendent girls hostel Bindu Tripath, Brijendra Singh and many others.
