The State University of Visual and Performing Arts, Rohtak is one of its only kind in Asia to provide with the integrated campus education in the fields of Design, Fine arts, Architecture and Urban Planning and Film and Television. Unfortunately, the workflow is on a steep downfall in the very beginning years due to several kinds of administrative lapse in the system of its governance.. The University is facing its worst phase since its inception in 2011 with the vision of providing the world class education to its students. To bring to your notice, some of them which need to be sorted urgently are:

1) The syllabus of the Department of Film and Tv has been changed from this session with a major cut down of practical projects, this will drastically affect the quality of film education.

2) Since the start of the university in 2011, most of infrastructure development is still pending like the buildings of Boys Hostel, Mini Auditorium, Shooting floor, sound studio, Film Library are there from years but non are functioning. There is a severe shortage of necessary equipments.

3) Every department is facing lack of required number of qualified faculties.

To understand the issues raised by the protesting students of department of film and television, we should keep in mind that the previous syllabus which had due importance to the practical aspects had resulted in the production of quality films by students. These have been screened, appreciated and critically acclaimed at various international and national film festivals like Busan International Film Festival South Korea, International Film Festival of India (IFFI) Goa, Tel Aviv Film Fetival Israel, IDSFFK Kerala etc. The current cut down in syllabus will deteriorate the overall academic atmosphere and also the future of students.

Even after several protests by students in the previous years the issue of infrastructural development remains unaddressed. The objective of nurturing the Arts & culture in the state by the university remains a distant dream. 

We demand a complete reversal of the change in syllabus, immediate action for developing the infrastructure and recruitment to vacant teaching positions in university.
