The hearing was held at 9 a.m. on January 30, and the general ticket price of Yuelu Academy was to be reduced from 50 yuan per person to 40 yuan per person.

In December 2018, Ni Hongtao, a professor and doctoral supervisor at the Law School of Hunan Normal University, issued a real-name essay questioning the admission fees collected by Yuelu College. Yuelu College of Hunan University has responded to this explanation. Yuelu Academy receives tickets on the basis of the approval made by Hunan Development and Reform Commission at the end of 2015, which is valid until December 31, 2018.

The hearing scheme announced by Hunan Development and Reform Commission includes four parts: the basis of law and policy, the situation of cost supervision and examination, the consideration factors of ticket price adjustment, and the formulation of ticket price.

In addition, the ticket pricing cost of Yuelu Academy is strictly limited to reasonable expenditure within the scope of scenic spots.

Hunan Provincial Development and Reform Commission introduced that Yuelu Academy is a national 5A scenic spot and a national key cultural relic protection unit, and Hunan University is entrusted by Hunan Province to maintain and manage it. Hunan University has made a positive contribution to the protection of Yuelu College and the promotion of Huxiang Culture. In order to implement the reform concept of reducing tickets for key state-owned scenic spots, Hunan University has proposed to reduce unit cost expenditure and appropriately reduce ticket prices by strengthening management and optimizing efficiency.

In order to fully reflect the public welfare of Yuelu Academy and increase the peoples sense of access, Hunan Development and Reform Commission intends to reduce its ordinary ticket price from 50 yuan per person to 40 yuan per person, and other preferential prices will be implemented in accordance with relevant laws, regulations and policies, according to the cost supervision of ticket prices and the actual operation of Yuelu Academy.

In addition, the Hunan Development and Reform Commission also notified 11 participants. Among them, 9 participants in the consumer hearing were recommended by Hunan Consumer Committee, and 2 participants in the operator hearing were recommended by Hunan University.
