Salient features of the Canteen Card System :
The Canteen Card system that has been proposed is NOT like
the previous "mess card" system.
THE CANTEEN CARD IS COMPULSORY FOR ALL STUDENTS RESIDING IN
Outside people, faculties, staff and any other interested
person can also enjoy the Canteen Card facility after
paying specified money.
A certain amount (currently ₹ 2500.00) in advance by 8th
of the month will be deposited by all the Card Holders ONLY in Bank
Account of the IISERK Students Monitored Canteen Fund.
The Establishment Charge of ₹ 500.00 that is being taken is
ONLY for PAYMENT OF THE CANTEEN WORKERS, THE MANAGER and THE ACCOUNTANT. The
Institute will NOT BEAR ANY EXPENSES REGARDING THE CANTEEN hence it is being
taken from all the card holder.
The remaining ₹ 2000.00 in the card can be used by the
students to buy their food. Any money left over shall be ADDED ON TO THE NEXT
MONTH. So any student who eats less than the ₹ 2000.00 will only HAVE TO PAY
THE BALANCE AMOUNT+THE ESTABLISHMENT CHARGE OF ₹ 500.00 BY 8th OF THE NEXT MONTH.
Students or anybody holding the card SHALL NOT BE CHARGED if
and when they skip a meal.
The amount that stays in the card at the end of the month
SHALL BE ROLLED OVER TO THE NEXT MONTH.
Those who finish their ₹ 2000.00 by the middle of an
ongoing month CAN RECHARGE THE CARD WITH A MINIMUM AMOUNT OF ₹ 500.00. THE MONEY
LEFT SHALL BE ROLLED OVER TO THE NEXT MONTH'S ACCOUNT IN THIS CASE ALSO.
Outside people including students who don't stay in hostel, Faculty,
Staff who don’t have the Card have to pay as per different price list that will
have 30% higher rate than usual rate.
Accountant will calculate the remaining balance of every card holder weekly and that will be updated on this website in Member Details section.You are requested to recharge your card once balance nears ₹ 500.00. Minimum recharge amount is ₹ 500.00.
