What is the explanation given by Allahabad University?
Allahabad University has given clarification in this matter. The university said that the fee has been increased after 110 years. The executive council had approved fee hikes for various courses almost two weeks ago since the university’s inception in 1922.
The university said that fee hike is the need of the hour in view of the changes being brought in as per the National Education Policy, under which more teachers are to be hired and new courses are to be started. The university also clarified that none of the existing students will be affected, as the fee hike will be applicable only for fresh entrants from the 2022-23 academic year. The question of the students is that how justified is the four-fold increase in fees at one go?
