JNU students denounce seat-cut

New Delhi, April 5 (IANS) Jawaharlal Nehru University (JNU) students here on Wednesday continued their protest against the cut in seats for M.Phil and Ph.D courses.

Some 100-120 students shouted slogans against the Human Resource Development Ministry and the Delhi Police.

“There is not much of hope now, but we cannot be stopped from demonstrating our anger,” Dileep, a student leader, told IANS.

The curtailing in the seats occurred after the Universtiy Grants Commission order related to faculty-student ratio for research guidance was adopted by the JNU last year.

The order entailed a limitation in the number of Ph.D and M.Phil students who can be taken up for guidance by a faculty member.

The Delhi High Court last month also ruled in favour of the university which had approached it as a consequance of repeated protests by students against the decision.
