A group of DU students was sitting on an indefinite protest to waive off all the non-academic fees. Thus, they explain that several college facilities have not been availed due to the closure of all DU colleges amidst covid-19.
These facilities include electricity, water fees, and most importantly cultural fees, library fees, and laboratory fees. These facilities have not been used for over a year ever since the colleges closed. However, students are required to pay such non-academic fees at the beginning of every academic year. Thus, the DU students allege that the administration is trying to avoid accountability over how these non-academic funds are being utilized.

Problems of DU Students:
The students state that everyone is facing a financial crisis due to covid-19. However, the university is adamant about asking to pay such unnecessary fees. Aftab Alam, a final year DU student wrote a letter to the DU Vice-Chancellor and the dean of students welfare. Hence, he demands to know where the money is being spent.
Peaceful protest of DU Students:
A group of 10-15 DU students has been protesting peacefully at the Arts Faculty on July 12. But, the college guards tried to remove them forcefully and did also beat them. Also, the students met the dean of welfare but that too went in vain.
In response, Mr. Rajiv Gupta, the dean of students welfare replied that the matter is out of their purview of authority. Hence, he recommended the students speak with the dean of colleges. However, the students are helpless as the calls to the dean of colleges were unanswered.
