NAGPUR: Following an order from the administration of Rashtrasant Tukdoji Maharaj Nagpur University (RTMNU), old Post-Graduation students at the university’s boys’ hostel at Ravi Nagar have vacated their rooms while the process of allotting the same rooms to new Post-Graduation students has also started.
The university in its recent order had decided that only those students, taking fresh admissions to post-graduation courses, shall be allotted the hostel rooms while the students, who register themselves for double post-graduation, would have to vacate the hostel. The PG students had strongly opposed the decision and also staged a demonstration at the university campus on Amravati Road.
The PG students had also submitted a memorandum to the Vice-Chancellor of the university requesting that old students be allowed to stay in the hostel along with new students. However, their request was turned down.
Having left with no option, the old PG students started vacating the hostel from last Monday. While some of the students have shifted to privately rented rooms, others have went back to their villages.
