Indian Institutes of Technology (IITs) and Indian Institutes of Information Technology (IIITs) will not hike tuition fee for any course for the academic year 2020-21. This was stated by Human Resource Development Minister Ramesh Pokhriyal Nishank in New Delhi yesterday. He said, the decision was taken after consultation with the Chairman of the Standing Committee of the IIT Council and Directors of IITs.

The HRD minister said, in case of the centrally-funded IIITs, it has been decided that the standard 10-per cent hike in the tuition fee for undergraduate programmes will not be implemented this year. He said, he has also requested the IIITs run in the public-private partnership mode not to hike the tuition fee for the coming academic year for any of their courses.
