With effect from academic session 2019-20, completing an undergraduate course in Delhi University colleges will be a bit heavier on the students’ pockets.
As per the reports, many colleges under the varsity have revised their annual fee structure thereby making a hike ranging from Rs 2000 to Rs 8000.
The information regarding the change in fee structure was provided in the new bulletin published by the University on its official website.
Notably, most of the colleges have given “insufficient funds” as the primary reason behind the revision in the fee plan while many others have termed it a ‘routine revision’.
The fee structure of Gargi College has witnessed a hike of Rs 2,500 to Rs 3,000 for most of the courses. However, for BA (Hons) Business Economics, the course fee has gone up by over Rs 14,000. Last year, it was Rs 26,875 but now it is Rs 41,220.
