New Delhi: The annual fee for undergraduate courses at the prestigious Indian Institute of Technologies (IITs) will be hiked from Rs 90,000 to Rs 2 lakh from the upcoming academic session, HRD ministry officials have said.
IITs, that topped the HRD list of rankings released recently, are the most sought after institutions by aspiring engineering students in the country.
The fee hike is likely to hamper the future dreams of hundreds of students. The decision to hike the fees follows recommendations of an expert panel, which suggested raising it by three times, the sources said on Thursday.
