Subsidized student meals are being “eaten up” by inflation, students demand changes


University students receive financial support of 140 denars per day or 840 denars per week as a subsidized student meal that they can use from Monday to Saturday. The measure is intended as a support to cover part of the students’ food costs, and funds are allocated from the state budget for it.

Most students think that the amount of the subsidy should be increased to at least 200 denars.
