JNU Changed Rules To Offer Cheap Hostel Rooms To Umar Khalid And Aparajita Raja

Published on 28 February, 2016 at 6:23 pm By

A media report suggests that the JNU administration relaxed existing guidelines to accommodate local students like Umar Khalid, a PhD student, and CPI leader and Rajya Sabha MP D Raja’s daughter, Aparajita Raja.

Umar Khalid, whose family lives at Zakir Nagar in South Delhi, has been staying at room number 168 of the Tapti hostel, in spite of being a resident of Delhi.

Aparajita too stays at room number 261 of the Koyna hostel even though her father has been allotted bungalow on posh Rafi Marg in Lutyens’ Delhi.

As per the JNU’s hostel manual, students coming from outside of Delhi should be preferred over local students when it comes to allocating hostel rooms.

The university rules suggest that local students should be considered for accommodation only after non-Delhi students have been accommodated.

There are about 5,500 hostel rooms in JNU  and thousands of students have to live outside of the campus for lack of hostel rooms.



JNU has been facing a shortage of hostel rooms for a long time and as a result, many had gone on an indefinite hunger strike demanding the expansion of hostel-capacity.

For one bed room set, the hostel rent for students staying on campus is Rs. 120 a year and Rs. 240 a year for a room with two beds. But if one has to stay outside like in the nearby Katwaria Sarai, Munirka and Bersarai, one has to shell out over Rs 6,000 per month.
