    can hostellers go outing in weekends?

    Dear Student

    It depends on college rules, some college allow outing in weekends, some not. Before outing in weekends ,you should ask warden of hostel. If he allows then only you should go because ,without permission if you caught by college security guard or any faculty. Very strong action could be taken against you like fine or even rusticated in some cases.

    Some college ask you a NOC ( no objection certificate) from your parents. that mean's all responsibilities on student's side and college will not be responsible for any misfortune.
