MTech fees at IITs to rise by up to 900%

The council of IITs on Friday decided to hike the fees of MTech programmes by nearly 900% and bring it to the level of its BTech courses, which cost about Rs 2 lakh annually. As of now, admission and tuition fees for an MTech course at IITs range between Rs 5,000 to over Rs 10,000 per semester.

The IITs will also stop the monthly stipend of Rs 12,400 given to MTech scholars who join the system on the basis of their graduate aptitude test in engineering (GATE) score. The council meeting, chaired by HRD minister Ramesh Pokhriyal, also approved the “tenure track pathway” to decide whether a new faculty member is going “up” or “out” after a fifth-year review of his/her performance.
