In the run up to the student council elections,Panjab University has decided to start its preparations and has announced the rules and regulations to be followed during the elections by various student organisations. The elections are likely to be held on September 4.

While discussing the various aspects of the upcoming elections,the authorities have declared that if any stickers or posters are found pasted anywhere in the campus,the respective student organisation will be fined Rs 2,000.

However,if the case is reported for the second time,a fine of Rs 5,000 will be imposed and the case will be reported to the police if the offence is repeated for the third time.

The decisions were taken at the meeting of the university authorities and members of various student organisations – which included National Student Union of India (NSUI),Indian National Student Organisation (INSO),Student Federation of India(SFI),Panjab University Student Council (PUSU),Student Organisation of Panjab University (SOPU) and Haryana Student Association (HSA) – on Tuesday.

seniority.

All departments will also have their own parking,” says Shantanu Katti,president of HSA.
