New Delhi: While defending the recent 25 per cent increase in the fees for the upcoming academic session, Ramjas College acting principal P.C. Tulsian said that the fees still remains the lowest as compared to various colleges of Delhi University.

“It is after a very long time, we have increased the fees. But even after the hike, our fee structure will be one of the lowest among most of the colleges. Our fee is not even one-third of that of St. Stephen’s and SRCC even after the hike,” Mr Tulsian said.

He further maintained that the fee hike is reasonable in order to have optimum resources for the college.

“There is a need for fund for maintenance of the new building, air-conditioning, maintaining new laboratories and paying salary to the contractual employees,” Mr Tulsian added.

However, student organizations, including DU Students’ Union and the National Students Union of India (NSUI), have been protesting, demanding a roll-back of the hike.

On Monday, even NSUI members submitted a memorandum to the principal while the ABVP is planning to stage a big protest against the fee hike in coming days.
