As a result of the ongoing lockdown, students living in rented accommodation and PGs are struggling to pay rent. Still, students are being asked to pay rent, even for rooms that are presently unoccupied as students are stuck in other places. With the nation-wide lockdown in force, some helpless tenants are in a state of trauma after being forced to vacate. The lockdown clearly means that no one should leave their homes.
Given the extraordinary situation and measures to contain the spread of COVID-19, it is clear from the above order that landlords cannot force residents to vacate or demand rent considering that many people are facing financial difficulties. Students' parents are having a hard time earning their livelihood, this means that paying the huge sums of college fees and paying for Unoccupied PG is nearly impossible & not feasible.
So, let's join hands and take action for the injustice being caused because we don't know when will this problem end and we need to save the hard earned money for the future. Sign this petition and share will all your college friends all around India to start this movement and share this on your social media handles with the hashtag #NoRentLockdown because we want our voices to be heard everywhere. Let's do it.
