Student bodies Krantikari Yuva Sangathan (KYS) and All India Students Association (AISA) staged a day long hunger strike on Thursday to protest against Delhi University’s registration and Course fee hike outside Arts Faculty in North Campus.

The registration fee for OBC and EWS category has both seen a drastic increase at Rs 750 and 300 respectively even when both these categories come under an admission criterion of Rs 8 lac annual family income.

Many Delhi University affiliated colleges, including Ramjas College, St Stephen’s College, Sri Venkateswara College and SGTB Khalsa College, are set to revise their fee structure for undergraduate courses from this year, citing “insufficient funds”.Gargi College, at the same time , has increased the fee for the BA (Hons) in Business Economics course to Rs 41,220 from Rs 26,875 last year.

The fee hike has demotivated the students belonging to a humble economic background further burdening their parents.
