New JNU Rules: According to the varsity’s new rules, students at Jawaharlal Nehru University (JNU) in Delhi will be fined Rs 20,000 for holding dharnas and may face admission cancellation or a fine of up to Rs 30,000 if they engage in violence.

All acts of violence, all forms of coercion such as gheraos, sit-ins, or any other variation that disrupts the normal academic and administrative functioning of the university, and/or any act that incites or leads to violence can result in punishments such as cancellation of admission, withdrawal of degree, or denial of registration for a specified period, rustication for up to four semesters, and/or declaring any part or the entire JNU campus out of bounds, expulsion, fine of Rs 30,000 or one/two semesters eviction from the hostel.

If JNU students are found engaging in any intimidation or insulting behaviour (physical violence/abuse/manhandling) towards a student, faculty, or any other person, they may be fined up to Rs 50,000 and/or rusticated.

The 10-page ‘Rules of Discipline and proper conduct of students of JNU’ has laid out punishments for different kinds of acts like protests and forgery, and procedures for proctorial enquiry and recording a statement.

According to the document, the rules came into effect on February 3. It came after the university witnessed a slew of protests over the screening of a BBC documentary.

The proposed punishments for gheraos, demonstrations, and sexual harassment under the old rules were cancellation of admission, rustication, and expulsion.

According to the statute, the university has a proctorial system in place, with the chief proctor in charge of student-related matters and all acts of indiscipline. Proctors assist both him and her. The competent authority determines the size of the Proctorial Board.
