We had lived under the impression that reaching campus later than the curfew time of 12AM meant deduction of fine directly from our security deposit. But, looking back at the fees breakup you received at admission, you will realise we didn’t have a refundable security deposit anyway. So the fine would not be deducted from any refundable deposit. What really happens is that when you’re due to vacate the hostels and finally leave college, you need to get all your dues cleared. During this process, when you visit Dinesh (Hostel Admin) or Vincent (Accounts), they will already have a list of the fine applicable for late coming. While our seniors got it relaxed by pleading, most of us had to pay the dues. The dues were relatively less though. While I expected approx 1000 rupee fine, I had none against my name and even the worst offenders had a fine less than 2000. So relax, live free. It’ll be manageable.
