CUET Dining: Eat or Pay Fine!

CUET Hall Authority Forcing Students To

It might sound strange, but reality can be stranger than fiction. Not for eating, but for abstaining oneself from eating is a cause of being fined at the Chittagong University of Engineering and technology (CUET). Here the students either have to eat in hall mess (dining) or to pay a fine in addition to losing their hall attachment. A recent announcement by the students’ welfare of the university have introduced this ‘Pay or fine’ rule.

According to this rule, a student has to pay a fine at an amount of TK. 200 and TK. 300 respectively for the first and second month if he fails to eat in hall mess paying a desired amount of money in each month. Again if it continues for more than two months he or she will be fined TK. 500 per month from the third month besides arising the possibility to lose their hall attachment after a certain period of time.

Like Jahangirnagar and Bangladesh Agricultural University, the majority of CUET students are resident students or at least have seats allotted to their name.

Students of different residential halls expressed dissatisfaction over the rule. They complained that they are actually forced to maintain hall dining by this regulation and it hampers one’s freedom in having food.

Samsul alam, a student resided in New hall (still unnamed) said, “I don’t feel eating such poor food in the hall mess, but I have to do so fearing the fine and lose of hall attachment.”

Tanvir hyder from Dr. Qudrat-e-khuda hall said, “On one side food is lower standard, on the other hand authority forces us to take such food.”

Sources said, the local students who usually take their meals at own home but have to collect dining token with the desired amount of money fearing lose of hall attachment are the worst victims of the rule. However, other students also have no option except eating or paying a fine.

“As my home is close to the university area I usually take my meals at home or outside the campus. But I have to buy dining token unnecessarily paying Tk. 1200 per month as to save hall attachment”, said Mahmudul Islam Khan Pratik, a resident of Shaheed tarek huda hall.

When contacted to the students’ welfare director Dr. Tazul Islam, he said “Fine has been set actually to develop meal quality motivating the students through hall dining”. “If larger number of the students collects token even in fear of the fine, it will results in increasing food quality.” - He added.

Sources further said, in case of they are staying outside the hall for a certain period of time due to short leave or any other necessity students are allowed to give back only ten day’s token at most. But they don’t get back the full money of the backed tokens; rather 25 percent of the money has been taking as charge. Moreover, the students have expressed doubt where the fined money goes on.

Complaining against hall authorities several anonymous students said, the authority have been taking a large amount of money as fine in each month, but the sector where the money is used is not specified.”

However, Provost of the Shaheed tarak huda hall Dr. Sajal chandra banik said in this context, “All the fined money is spent in hall purposes and in hall’s development”.

In reply to the question how the development will continue when all the students start collecting dining token and hence hall gets no fine? He said, development process will then get slower motion comparatively.” শিক্ষা সংক্রান্ত খবরাখবর নিয়মিত পেতে রেজিস্ট্রেশন করুন অথবা Log In করুন।
