Standards for Hostel Services

There are literally no standards for hostel services in India. Both boys and girls hostel are poorly built for the most part and ignored in terms of maintenance. There are several dangerous and unsafe spaces, security is missing. there have been incidences of all sorts.

BIS should form basic standards for hostel services. So anyone who is starting one, has to comply to them and show their compliance upfront. more

Wish for easy money is the root cause. We also simply accept thinking it as temporary. more  
More or less similar condition prevails in 99% of hostels in schools & colleges of the country managed either by the governments (central & states) or by the private players excepting those basically meant for the richers capable to meet the exorbitant charges plus prevailing corruption . Moreover, the fees and charges of these hostels are kept to the barest minimum considering the financial incapability of the parents of majority of the students, which is too inadequate leaving negligible amount for maintenance after meeting the expenses on the students' boarding and other requirements. Therefore, it would be unfair to blame the managements of the hostels only. more  
hello most people going to hostels expect 5 star facilities at no cost/ or peanuts not even real costs ? also ? live with a family but be ready to pay depending upon the location - services etc - for example in Noida ac gas gets leaked 2 times minimum a year in summers now 9 months of the year - happens almost every year and gas filling is around rs 2000 min if no other problem in the ac and anyone who can live in a non ac room ? everything is a cost first ? nakhre karne hai then plz stay at your own home that is always the best ? more  
NIT hamirpur provide hostel facility. They provide room with space of one bed, one table chair for single seater. If anybody enter in the room. He/she will have to go directly on bed or chair
Why this matter should not be consulted department of education, department of higher education more  
If hostels are run by the governments, may be privatisation is a solution !! more
