If they fail to renew the book a nominal fine of 25 paise on each book per each working day is collected. The amount collected through fines is credited to the library fee fund account. Physically Challenged students are exempted from periodical renewal of their books. They can keep the books borrowed for an academic year unless they want to change the book.
