PU costlier meals: Students call off agitation
The University authorities have decided on ad hoc basis, that a subsidy be provided at Rs 2.50 per resident student per meal till January 15, 2013, out of an appropriate Budget Head, as an interim measure. This subsidy will be provided to the resident students who ask for it and shall be adjusted against the Mess Bills of the individuals.
There is a complete roll back on the increased prices at Students Centre and those who can produce a university student’s identity card will buy food at the old rates. A meeting is further to take place on the issue of the prices of food items at hostel canteens. A meeting was held on Thursday between the Director of Students Welfare and executive members of and representatives of the Panjab University Campus Students Council and leaders of major political parties like PUSU, SFI, NSUI and SFS.
“It shall be clear to the students that this is purely an ad hoc arrangement and in case the statutory body of the University does not approve the release of funds, the status quo that exists today will continue,” stated an official communication from the office of the Vice Chancellor.
