New Delhi: The Delhi University Students Union (DUSU) and the National Students Union of India (NSUI) are observing hunger strike demanding free online registration for the admissions.

The online registration service was launched for the students few days back at http://www.du.ac.in/index.php?id=4 where the students can register on payment of Rs 100 and can fill the forms without standing in the scorching heat and confronting long queues.

The NSUI-DUSU strike entered its third day on Saturday as the students union continued their protest at the North Campus Arts faculty demanding 'Free and Transparent Online Admission Registration Policy’ for the students.

The student unions are protesting against the faulty online registration system and have asked the university to rollback the fee of Rs 100 and return the amount back to the students. They are demanding the online registration to be made free.

Talking to Jagran Post, National Delegate at NSUI, Deepak Negi says, “The online registration system is full of faults. There are several doubts and technical glitches. Therefore, to avert the upcoming trouble to be faced by the students at the time of admission, we are demanding the rollback of the online registration fee.”
