Frequently Asked Questions (From Team and Students)
Q-1) how do we define validity of an Library card?
Q-2) what if an ex-student wants to continue library membership?
As per the rules only current students are allowed to become member of library. If an ex-student wants to become library member he/she should get permission form Center Head. Rest of the process is same. Center Head is expected to weigh the need and genuineness of the candidate.
Q-3) If directory & such reference material is lost in any case what should be the fine/replacement?
In such cases a fine of Rs. 500/- should be charged from the student and a request is to be sent to CO for the replacement.
Q-4) Why the fine for late return of books is so high? (It is 10/- at CH and student compare it with colleges where these fines are ranging from 50 paisa to 2 rupees per day.)
Here librarian should explain that aim is not earning money, the fines are kept high so that timely delivery of books can be ensured.
