MIT HOSTEL FEE

Dust, dust and even more dust. This is exactly what comes to one’s mind when they think of the “shortcut” road from KC to the 16th or 17th Block. This road which connects the heart of the campus to some of the biggest hostels in the MIT Campus is made up of nothing else but slag and dust.

And a cloud of this slag and dust is created every time a vehicle plies on this road which leaves the students using this road no option but to inhale this dust. And due to the construction work that is taking place behind the 16th and 17th block, more and more number of trucks and dumpers are moving on this road which has become a curse for all students of the 16th and 17th Block. “Whenever I see a vehicle on the “shortcut” road, I run for cover to make sure that I don’t have to inhale the cloud of dust created. I hope that the road is constructed as soon as possible as it is causing a lot of problems for all of us living in the 16th and 17th Block”, said Shivang Abhishek, a resident of the 16th Block.

The situation was not as bad in the rainy season as the dust had settled down but during the summer months the condition has become horrible. Even the leaves of the plants and trees planted on the sides of this road have become brown due to the accumulation of dust on them. As a result many students of the 16th and 17th block have started using alternate roads to get to their hostels from KC or vice-versa. But all other roads take more time than the shortcut and hence majority of the students are a little hesitant to take them. “I have stopped taking the shortcut road to get to my hostel block due to the dust present there. I instead use the road which 14th Block students use i.e. the road adjoining the Apoorva Mess. It takes a few minutes more but is still better than the shortcut”, said Himanshu Kumawat, a resident of 16th Block.

We at MTTN hope that this issue is taken up by the student council and put to the notice of the college administration at the earliest. This would bring a world of relief for almost 1500 students who live in the 16th and 17th block.
