more-in

Continuing its agitation against the JNU administration’s compulsory education directive, the university’s students union has announced that it will hold a ‘referendum’ on the issue on March 7.

“JNUSU appeals to students to vote this time in the referendum on Wednesday March 7,” JNUSU president Geeta Kumari said. The election body that held JNUSU elections last year will be deputing some of its members for holding the referendum.

Meanwhile, a group of JNU research scholars claimed that they have initiated a survey on compulsory attendance policy on how the initiative would help improve academic excellence as claimed by the administration.

The questionnaire, which is restricted to JNU students, is already in circulation and a student with an e-mail ID can participate in it only once, they said. The questions include how serious absenteeism was on campus for different courses and how does attendance contribute to academic excellence.
