The Guru Gobind Singh Indraprastha University popularly known as IP University on 17th August’ 16 i.e. Wednesday announced that the hike in the fee is by 32 percent and not by 75 percent. The University has been a part of controversies recently because of all the confusion. Earlier students and parents thought the fee is increased by 75 percent i.e. from Rs.40,000 to Rs.70,000 but it is clarified now that the fee is increased by 32 percent i.e. from Rs.53,000 to Rs.70,000.
The 75 percent hike was opposed by the students, parents and political parties. IP University is a government aided university and last time the fee revised by them was in the year 2011 which tells that it is time for another revision. The University said that the new fee is only for students who will take admission in the year 2016 and after that and not for students who are already studying at the university. They also claim that even after the revision their fee is a lot less than other Government Technical Universities.
The proposal of revision of fee was approved in June and it was done to keep up with the recommendations made by the State Fee Regulatory Committee set up by the Delhi government in February 2013.
