NESHW Students started this petition to Arvind Kejriwal (Chief Minister of Delhi) and

We, the residents of North Eastern Students House For Women, a hostel under Delhi University with a maximum intake of North East Indian girls, are filing this online petition at a time of desperation.


The Provost, Prof Rita Singh of the Dept of Zoology, had been appointed in 2018. In her tenure, she has let loose a term of authoritarian arbitrary power, refusing to divulge in any transparency with the students. Moreover, in instances when her authority is challenged and answers demanded, the residents have been shouted at, judged on and pulled down causing us much mental harassment and stress. 


This year, the fee hike of quarterly charges, which has to be paid in 3 quarters, excluding the 4th quarter, has arbitrarily been increased from Rs 11550 to Rs 13400  and the annual charges from Rs 7665 to Rs 9440 which left us in shock as the fee hike was immense in nature and was not justifiable. The fee hike has been put forward without any consultation with any resident and it was arbitrary in nature.


The sanitation workers who have worked here for years and have been a part of the hostel had been dismissed overnight, replaced by a private manpower service. 


We demand changes- 
 1.  That the Provost submit her resignation at the earliest
 2. That the fee hike be decreased
 3. That the dismissed workers be given their ESI/PF at the earliest
 4. That transparency in all financial matters and the funds be established
