DU UG course fees : The University of Delhi is said to be the dream college of every student and is also one of the best and oldest universities in Delhi. It is a well-known fact that Delhi University is not only one of the top universities of India but also a prestigious educational institution across the globe. Every year Delhi University opens its admission procedure and invites applications from interested candidates in the month of May. They usually make applications available after the board results and release different cut-off lists so that students can apply to the colleges accordingly.
UG course fees hike: Impact
But this time several colleges hike DU UG course fees for the upcoming academic year 2019. While some colleges have increased the fees by Rs 2500/- INR to Rs 3000/- INR. Whereas for some others the hike is as much as by Rs 14,000/- INR for one course.
Many Delhi University (DU) colleges are planning for having a set to revise their fee structure for undergraduate courses from this year as they are suffering from “insufficient funds”. While some colleges have already conducted their staff council meetings to discuss the issue, many have constituted committees for the revision. Numerous Delhi University (DU) colleges are planning to have an altered and polished annual fee structure for undergraduate courses at least with the hike of ₹2,000/- INR to ₹8,000/- INR this year, the new bulletin will be shared most probably by the University on its official website on Tuesday as stated.
Colleges take so far
The administration of most of the colleges accepts “insufficient funds” as a reason for increasing the fee. Hindustan Times firstly, on June 7, had reported about the fee revision plan.
Promila Kumar, principal of the Gargi college, said, “The University has approved BA (Hons) in Business Economics as a self-financed course. We have to generate our own funds to pay salaries to teachers besides other expenses. We are not getting any grant from the university for the course.”
The mean hike in fee in Aryabhatta College, Bhaskaracharya College for Applied Sciences, Delhi College for Arts and Commerce, Deshbandhu College, Hindu College, Indraprastha College for Women, Miranda House, Motilal Nehru College, and Ramjas College is between ₹1500 and ₹3500. According to Hindustan Times, it has been mentioned that Aryabhatta College, the fee for BSc (Hons) in Mathematics has been hiked up to ₹15,230 from last year’s ₹10,650.
Rajesh Jha, the member of the DU’s executive council (EC), said the EC members will demand a rollback of the fee hike. “We strongly demand the rollback of fee hike as it is very much against the higher education accessible to every section of the society. The drastic cut in UGC grants has brought such a situation. Just imagine what will happen when we will be forced to take a loan from HEFA”.
So it can be said that this time parents and students will suffer a lot due to the hike in the college fees. Somehow now they are forced to take loans to pay the admission fees. Students are now pleading to the administrators for the concession of fees so that their parents can agree to take admissions in Delhi University.
