UoH student unions cry foul. Complaints against dysfunctional toilets for past six months go unheard

The tag of the Best Central University in India to the University of Hyderabad (UoH), seems questionable with one look at the state of toilets in the institution. Students are now running out of patience trying to convince the authorities to fix the problem for over six months.


Several complaints to different heads by students have not yielded results. Vincent, president, Ambedkar Student Association, said, “It is more than six months since we complained about the bad condition of toilets. The former Vice-Chancellor ordered the administration to take action but till date nothing has been done.”


Speaking to the registrar on phone he said, “Yes everybody has to work for the development of the university, even the sanitation department. I cannot comment anything on it, as it is still not under my notice.” “While the administration and engineering department officials lay the blame on lack of funds, the new Vice-Chancellor does not seem to be in favour of student’s welfare,” said Anirudh, (name changed on request).


Rani Ratnamala, warden of women’s hostel, says, “Things cannot change overnight. Yes, there are some sanitation problems in women’s’ hostels. Being a warden I cannot solve all the problems. I have forwarded many complaints to the administration office. It is in process and it takes time. The university has decided to build new hostels for ladies.” “Though I have written many letters to the warden and administration office there is no response.


There is a fund allotted for the development of the hostels, but it is still been unused,” alleged a member from Students Federation of India.“We do not have adequate number of toilets or incinerators for waste disposal. Student’s unions often complain about the hygiene and maintenance.

There are few toilets for large number of students,” said a first year student from the communication department. “Most toilets are located near our rooms and the stench is intolerable. And to top it, most toilets have inadequate water supply,” she added.
