Day care notice:

The Day Care Centre is one of the important social responsibilities that JNUTA is shouldering for the benefit of the whole JNU community. We have been striving to improve its maintenance and functioning.

In view of the overall inflation the last JNUTA EC decided to increase the monthly charges from Rs 1000 to 2000 (full day) and from 750 to 1500 for half day for each child. This is still less than any other day care facility in South Delhi. We also decided to raise the remuneration of the day care employees as follows:

Supervisor: 40 percent of the collection with a ceiling of Rs 12000 per month.

Worker/ attendant: 25 percent of the collection with a ceiling of Rs 7000/- per month.

It was also decided that if there is sufficient balance from the the previous year we may think of giving bonus for the last year in view of the fact that the payment was less than government approved minimum wages.

The East Asian region has been at the forefront of several path-breaking changes since 1970s beginning with the redefining the development architecture with its State-led development model besides emerging as a major region in the global politics and a key hub of the sophisticated technologies.

The central objective is to impart an interdisciplinary knowledge and understanding of history, foreign policy, government and politics, society and culture and political economy of the respective areas. Students can explore new and emerging themes such as East Asian regionalism, the evolving East Asian Community, the rise of China, resurgence of Japan and the prospects for reunification of the Korean peninsula.
