C. Chagla. During the discussion that followed, Bhushan Gupta, member of parliament, voiced the opinion that this should not be yet another university. New faculties should be created, including scientific socialism, and one thing that this university should ensure was to keep noble ideas in mind and provide accessibility to students from weaker sections of society. The JNU Bill was passed in Lok Sabha on 16 November 1966 and the JNU Act came into force on 22 April 1969 The Indian School of International Studies was merged with the Jawaharlal Nehru University in June 1970. Following the merger, the prefix "Indian" was dropped from the name of the School and it became the School of International Studies of the Jawaharlal Nehru University

Overall: I took admission in SoE , Jnu New Delhi in the course of plus in stream of ECE. I assumed that collage was nice because JNU is the high rated University all over India but it is exact opposite to my assumption specialy in Engineering department . It is not for Engineering . You can do masters here but for bachlors it is not good at all.

Infrastructure: It has basic infrastructure but you don't get labs for engineering department so you have to go to other masters lab for you lab classes . And it all are not designed for a fresher student also ther is not proper machinery for ECE .

Faculty: As we know a person who is teaching in a Jnu like institute is well educated and well discovered by there subject but some teachers and not ready to give there best they are just doing time pass but some are giving there best.or more then seficiant.

Hostel: Pricing is too low of jnu hostals .like you have to pay may be 200 rs. for per month rant. And you have to pay 4500 rs. For on time payment . But mess was not that much good.

Hello Manish

Congratulations on securing such good marks but you must note that anyone can take admission in JNU only on the basis of CUET result. Hence there is no other alternative to take admission to the campus. The CUET 2023 result is likely to be out in the first week of July hence you can take admission on the basis of that result. The last date to fill JNU application form 2023 is July 15, 2023

  • A stunning campus. The flora at JNU actually changes with the seasons. It's a great spot to be, especially in the spring. It makes you grateful to be alive.
  • There will be no ragging. As far as I am aware, every senior and professor is helpful. There is no tolerance for ragging.
  • You may listen to the knowledgeable and renowned for free: I got the opportunity to hear DALAI LAMA speak, and he is all he is known for and more.
  • There are no safety concerns. Everyone admires your uniqueness.
  • The political situation. Whether you like it or not, you will become more politically conscious, read more in order to comprehend, and so dispute.
  • A library that is open 24 hours a day, seven days a week. All items are well-stocked and easily accessible.
  • JNU fees :  In a year, I pay around 600 Rupees in tuition costs.
  • There's no need to keep up appearances. You want to come to class in your PJs? Go ahead. You can do it without being frowned upon.
  • The instructors who are down to earth. You can dispute with them on a wide range of issues, and discuss if necessary. You can approach them with any issue.
