Jamshedpur, July 5: Students of Jamshedpur Co-operative College on Tuesday raised the demand for better facilities in their hostel.
The hostel inmates demanded a better electricity connection, cleanliness, proper maintenance work and better amenities in and around the hostel.
A students group raised the matter with S. S. Razi, principal, Jamshedpur Co-operative College. The students complained of irregular power supply that leads to problems for students especially at the time of studying at night. The double storied welfare hostel has 30 rooms.
“We have been reeling under lack of facilities. There is no power supply since yesterday. We are not able to study at night due to lack of electricity.
The wiring of the building needs to repaired only then we can get uninterrupted power supply,” said a student. The students, therefore, demanded the college switch room to be cleaned and repaired too.
Razi said that the students met him and their demands have been noted for positive action. The hostel under the state welfare department was being taken care by the college funds.
The college, a constituent unit of Kolhan University, which was established in 1960, on a sprawling 35 acres of land given by Tata Steel, has around 7000 students on roll for different streams and 77 faculties.
