The university’s fee revision committee has decided to bring down the BA LLB (Hons) fees to Rs 1.05 lakh which earlier was Rs 1.5 lakh. This includes Rs 10,000 as admission fee, Rs 60,000 tuition fee, Rs 2,000 for development, Rs 3,000 each for library, Internet, moot court and examination and Rs 1,500 each for medical and sports. Reading material given to students cost Rs 6,000 while caution money is Rs 10,000 (refundable). Room rent is Rs 7,500 and Rs 4,000 is for amenities.
The candidates who are there to pursue LLM degrees will have to pay more this year onwards. The LLM course which was started in the year 2008 has a hike of about Rs 19,000 from this session. Before, it was Rs 43,000 which directly increased to Rs 66,000.
