MHRD and M. Tech fee Hike in IITs
MHRD stands for Ministry of Human and Development who look after the two departments: The first one is the department of school education and literacy, which deals with primary, secondary and higher secondary and the second one is the department of higher education which deals with the University education, technical education, Scholarships etc
Now coming to the main discussion if you watch news daily you must be aware with the M. Tech fee hike in IITs. It's not just a hike, it's a huge hike. It was decided by the MHRD minister RAMESH POKHRIYAL along with the IIT council to approve the proposal received for hiking the fee on 29th SEPTEMBER 2019. It was decided in the meeting that the fee of IITs for M. Tech will be increased by 900% and it was also decided that the stipend given to them monthly will also be stopped.
The reason given by them for this was that many students left their M. Tech study and shift to PSUs and other sectors after one year. So every year the IITs faces loss. So the decision taken.
After decision made by them, the students started protesting against the decision, not only students the professors also joined the students as this is a huge increment and not everyone is rich here.
The protest is still going on and students are still trying to get rid of the decision.
