This petition made change with 567 supporters!

This petition is against the recent policy change which have been introduced at Lovely Professional University (LPU) Jalandhar, Punjab. Against the students staying at PG/Rented accommodation outside the university premises.

This new policy which have been introduced is a clear depiction of desperation from the university's side due to the increasing number of students leaving the poor hostel facilities provided by the university. One notable thing about the same is that it came right after another notification saying about the Hostel bookings been opened.

The original notification is as shown below. :

Subject: Policy related to PG/rented accommodation

LPU has always strived to provide a composite educational environment to all its students. Students from all states of India and many countries across the globe study here. It becomes our responsibility to make sure that students get safe, hygienic, and conducive residential facilities on the campus itself. The prime objective here is to make sure that the students admitted in LPU must get a quality living experience that supports them throughout their career and provide every opportunity to develop them as individual.

However, as per our experience students sometime decide to stay outside the university in privately owned room (PG) or shared accommodation, which apart from its safety concerns may tempt them to social evil, which at their young age appears to be very attractive but is harmful in long term.

University has decided to enforce the following policy to ensure that all those students, who decide to stay outside the university in PGs / shared accommodation, get the appropriate accommodation and that after physical verification by their parent(s).

a)Parents of all such students will be required to visit the PG / Shared accommodation (where their ward intends to stay) personally and submit the following documents on or before 30th June 2016.

i.Two Photographs (Post Card Size) of PG / rented accommodation taken with parents present in the accommodation. One photograph showing building from outside and the second one showing the room. Parents should be part of the photographs and it should be clicked with parents present in PG / rented accommodation.
ii.Duly filled form
iii.Undertaking by Parent(s)
iv.Undertaking by Owner of the PG/Rented Accommodation

b)The attendance for the next semester (commencing August 2016) will be activated only after submission of above mentioned documents by the due date.
c)The documents will be submitted by Parent(s) in person only.
d)The documents should be submitted in Block 30, Room No. 108.
e)Documents as mentioned above cannot be submitted partially.
f)International students may submit the documents as mentioned above after their own signatures in place of their parents. Similarly photographs may be submitted without presence of parents.

NOTE: The above policy will not be applicable to
a)Students staying in University Residential Facilities.
b)Students directly coming from their permanent residence within 60 Kms of university campus.

In case of any queries, concerned may write at or may visit at Record and Verification Cell, Block 30, Room No. 108.

--- End---

Since 60% of the university's students are from South and Northeastern parts of India it is not easy to bring in the parents from these places just for taking a photo and giving a signed paper unless the University itself provides the means and money required to do the same.

Show your support to end this discriminating business tactic put forth by LPU in order to bring the students staying outside to forcefully take poor quality hostel services provided.
