The fee hike was approved during a meeting of the CEPT board Friday.
While UG fees has been hiked from Rs 30,000 to Rs 50,000 per semester,the fees for PG courses,which is Rs 80,000 per semester at present,is now up by Rs 3,750.
Anita Hiranandani,Registrar at the CEPT,said the fees had been hiked with an aim to making the university self-financed in five years. We are switching to an inflation adjusted regime. We want to reduce our dependence on grants, he said.
The university has also decided to allow students to work as assistants on campus and earn. We still have to work out the remuneration but PG students and PhD scholars can aid our faculty by taking classes, Hiranandani said.
