The Punjab University Syndicate has decided to hike the fee for each course by five percent, which would become active from the next academic session. The fee hike would be limited to Rs. 500 to Rs. 1,200 for various courses depending on the ongoing fee structure of particular courses. The course fee hike would be active at all the teaching departments and its regional centres from the session 2015-16.
The fees of the university has remained the same for many years and the authority has felt the need to raise the fees nominally so that it doesn’t become burden to any of the students studying at various courses under the university. In a press release released by Punjab University it said, “The Syndicate members felt the necessity of nominal hike in the fees as it has not been increased for many years. However, the upper limit was restricted to Rs 1,200 against the proposed Rs 1,500 as the maximum limit."
The committee which has decided about the fee hike would further consider the introduction of a separate compulsory qualifying paper to start in the undergraduate level named, ‘Domestic Violence against Women and Children’, keeping in mind the ongoing incidents and atrocities over women and children in society and to counter the same.
