JNU administration today decided to facilitate interim registrations for the nine students who were earlier suspended in December for disrupting the academic council meeting held to discuss the discriminatory UGC gazette which revises the admission criterion to M.Phil and Ph.D courses.
Their suspension has been put on hold until the proctorial inquiry sends their next report.
On the other hand, JNUSU President Mohit K Pandey has been issued a disciplinary action notice for violating the university norms continuously. The notice warned him against holding strikes and demonstrations at the administration block.
“You have been found to be repeatedly and periodically violating the university rules by organising protests in the prohibited areas. You are cautioned to refrain from doing so failing which appropriate disciplinary action may be taken against you,” the notice stated.
Letters have also been issued to five professors for addressing the protest gathering on January 9.
“It has been noticed that one of the posters, calling for a public meeting at the administrative building on January 9, has mentioned your name as one of the speakers. You are hence requested to respect and follow the statutes, rules and regulations of the university” the letter addressed to the professors stated.
Over a dozen letters have been issued to the professors and students over the last few weeks.
Though the student union defined it as a positive move, they, however, asserted that they shall continue protesting until the council rolls back its decision and the suspension of the students are revoked.
