  • MTech fees to jump by 900% to Rs 2 lakh per year

    The council of Indian Institutes of Technology (IITs) on Friday decided to increase the fees of MTech programmes by up to 10 times (nearly 900%) to Rs 2 lakh annually, making it equivalent to the fees charged for its BTech courses.

    The hike will be introduced in a staggered manner over a three-year period, starting from 2020 academic session.

    The IIT Council's decision to hike fees will be introduced in a staggered manner over a three-year period, starting from 2020 academic sessions.

    "The council approved, in principle, recommendations of the three-member committee constituted for suggesting reforms in the M.Tech system. The committee has recommended a uniform fee structure for the M.Tech programme in all IITs, and for charging the same fee for M.Tech, as in B.Tech programmes." the HRD ministry said.

    The IITs will also eliminate the monthly stipend of Rs 12,400 given to MTech students on the basis of their Graduate Aptitude Test in Engineering (GATE) score. "These funds can also be used for other professional activities," it said.

    The ministry said that some part of this stipend will instead be used as a teaching assistant in UG Labs and courses.
