In a huge development that will impact thousands of IITstudents, the govt has decided to hike IIT fees by a whopping 100%. The IIT fees have been hiked from Rs 90,000 to Rs 2 lakh.
Students from the SC, ST & disabled category won’t have to pay any fees at all. Students from families with incomes of less than 5 lakhs will have to pay only 1/3 of the total fees.
The Congress has opposed the hike, saying that it will have an adverse effect on IIT students and that the hike is unjustified.
