Web Desk‌Updated: Friday Jan 24, 2020

NEW DELHI : In an embarrassing setback to authorities at the prestigious Jawaharlal Nehru University(JNU),  the Delhi High Court on Friday, asked the administration to base all its registrations on the  old fee-structure.

To the students holding prolonged protests on the issue, it is a victory of sorts,  given that the ruling is interim  and the authorities have been allotted a two-week timeline for its response. The Student’s Union in a general body meeting represented by various departments and centres, had decided to approach the High Court against implementing the proposed fee-hike.

The students had urged the court for cancellation of revised Hostel Manual that stated fee revision.
