This refers to the problems faced by hostellers of Sher-e-Kashmir University of Agricultural Sciences & Technology, Jammu (SKUAST-J). The electricity supply is a big problem in our hostel at R.S. Pora. When all the hostels of the other colleges and universities of J&K, including Jammu University, GMC Jammu, Kashmir University, and even SKUAST-K are getting 24 hour power supply, we are languishing in dark ages. The hostel gets power supply according to a schedule of the local area that comes to about 12 hours in 24 hours. And even after the scheduled curtailment, unscheduled power cuts are more than frequent. In temperatures that exceed 45°C how are the students supposed to study? Vice Chancellor Dr. Dilip. K. Arora should look into the matter and address our genuine problems.
