Amidst the frenzy of Delhi University admissions 2019, some colleges announced an increase in fees for their undergraduate courses. According to a report by Hindustan Times, the fee hike was announced after the colleges revised their annual fee structure.

The colleges witnessed a sudden increase in fees in their undergraduate courses as a result of “insufficient funds”. This news can be a striking factor for the freshers in their choice of college as they fight for securing a seat in Delhi University. While most colleges will witness a hike of Rs. 2,500- Rs. 3,000, for some it will be as high as Rs. 14,000.

The fees for BA English (Honours) course in Hindu College was increased by Rs. 2,520, while Ramjas saw an increase of Rs. 3,100 for the same course. According to the report, Gargi College also witnessed an amended fee structure with a hike in the admission fee for BA (Honours) Business Economics, where the fee has been increased by Rs 14,000 to Rs 41,200 as compared to last year’s fee of Rs 26,875.

“The University has approved BA [Honours] in Business Economics as a self-financed course,” said Promila Kumar, principal of Gargi College. “We have to generate our own funds to pay salary to teachers besides other expenses. We are not getting any grant from the university for the course.” However, to the relief of students, Miranda House will not see a fee hike this year according to the report.

This step can also be seen as a way forward for the colleges to tackle the problem of 30:70 formula, where the autonomous institutions would have to bear at least 30% of the additional expenditure on account of the revised pay scale. College authorities also cited “routine revision” as another reason for proposing a revised fee structure, which will be applicable for the upcoming academic year of 2019-2020.
