Himachal Pradesh University to implement new policies for hostels

Published On: 28 Jun 2012

The Himachal Pradesh University is planning to limit the number of years students' can avail hostel facilities. In a move to curb the violence in hostels and reduce overcrowding, the university will allow students to use the hostel only for three years. As per sources, boarders were staying at the hostels for long periods and getting involved in student politics.

Following the violence that struck the HPU boys' hostel on June 12, injuring more than 25 students and forcing an indefinite closure of the hostel, the university is considering implementing a cap on the number of years a student can use the hostel facility.

As per the new policy, hostels will be allotted giving preference to students pursuing research work and PhDs, with the aim of providing the facility to those who really require it.

Following the recent violence, the police had searched the premises after the HC issued a directive in this regard. The search found that many unauthorized occupants had been using the hostel, with more than 2,000 students living in the hostel meant for 810 occupants.

The police also recovered 200 knives, 110 lathis, swords and iron rods from the hostels. HPU has been notorious for violence, with many party outfits using it to promote student politics. The search found that hostels were divided on the basis of various outfits including SFI and ABVP.

In July 2012, violence between groups of SFI and ABVP activists resulted in four injuries and detention of 60 students, including girls. In May 2011, clashes between NSUI and SFI caused injuries to 5 students and raids were carried out at four hostels including SBH, Tagore, GH and Srikhand.
