You’ll be quite surprised to know about the recent hikes in the education fees of some of the premier institutes in India – be it Indian Institute of Management (IIM) or Indian Institute of Technology (IIT). The latest course fee structure released by IIM-Ahmedabad shows that it will cost Rs 19.5 lakhs for the 2-year management course in 2018, which is approximately 400% higher than what it used to be in the year 2007. Hence, if we calculate the fees considering this average hike of 20% every year, it will cost around 95 lakhs for this 2-year course in 2025 (which is indeed a huge amount). Similarly, the tuition fee for IIT has been increased to Rs 2 lakhs from the earlier fees of Rs 90,000 per year. At this rate, this fee can go up to as high as Rs 17 lakhs in the next 8 years.
Parents, who haven’t planned well in advance and hence, are not prepared for the huge costs associated with education, can fall worryingly short of the required amount when the time comes.
