The cost of studying at the prestigious Indian Institute of Technology has more than doubled, officials from the ministry of human resource development said on Thursday.
The annual fee for undergraduate courses now stands at Rs 2,00,000 against Rs 90,000 earlier.
The council of IIT had recommended the revised fees. Meanwhile, Union Human resource development minister Smriti Irani has promised complete exemption of fees for all SC/ST, Dalit and physically challenged students of the 23 branches of Indian Institute of Technology (IIT). A notification to this effect will be brought soon.
