FRC reviews the fees of engineering and pharma colleges every three years. The fees hiked in 2019 are in effect till 2022. With this, the FRC has taken up the exercise on new fees from the academic year 2022-23. It has agreed in principle to increase the minimum fee from Rs.35 thousand to Rs.45 thousand and the maximum fee from Rs.1.40 lakh to Rs.1.73 lakh. However, the students' associations stated that they are not ready to bear the high fees as the financial conditions of the families have been damaged due to two years of Covid. FRC said that the old fees will continue for this year.
