The management will not be in a position to control this as there are no full-time wardens. The atmosphere will get spoiled and good students can't survive here. But there is no option.
These hostels are not only costly but also there is no discipline and chances for the students to get spoiled are more. So as mentioned by the author the UGC should think and make amendments so that the atmosphere in hostels is good and the expenditure is reasonable.
Thoughts exchanged is knowledge gained.
The hostel wasn't a five-star accommodation, but it had all the basic necessities and more. Food wasn't palatable, but that is the story everywhere. There is nothing like home food, and students miss that, and it is not that the food is terrible. Most messes are managed by the students.
I think the alumni should give back to the college, and help improve the infrastructure. My husband's batch built a recreational hall in the Government Engineering College to commemorate their 25 years of graduation. NIT graduates also fund various projects.
Instead of complaining, do something productive - get in touch with your seniors and float the idea to them of funding projects. Speak to the Director of the college and chart out a plan. Send emails out officially, asking for donations and fundings for new facilities. There'll certainly be ex-students, who'll willingly contribute.

I remember we didn't have power back although power failures were rare those days yet they should have it. I remember due to major breakdown we didn't have a power supply for almost 2 days.
Food in the hostel mess was below average. I remember once I found a spider sticking at the bottom of the glass after I drank milk. There was no hygiene they used to maintain. We complained many times about such issues to the director of the college but he never showed any interest to improve anything.
