One time mess security fee has been increased from Rs 5500 to Rs 12000.
After 11pm or maximum 11.30pm, students have to stay inside their hostels and will not be able to get out. If anyone is found in a hostel or campus other than his own hostel, he will be removed from the hostel.
In addition, the new manual also states that people have to come to the dining hall wearing "proper clothes". Students ask what is the definition of 'proper clothes'. However, the Vishwa Vidyalaya administration says that these rules were already in place. This is only repeated but not modified.
The student union is demanding the withdrawal of the draft.
