According to Indian Institute of Technology (IIT) Bombay director Subhasis Chaudhuri, the cost of university education in India was cheap, despite which there was a demand from certain section of students in the country for a lower fee structure.
Dr. Chaudhuri was speaking at Xenith’20 organised by St. Xavier’s College’s Information and Technology department last week. Referring to the demands of students of Jawaharlal Nehru University and Jadavpur University, he said, “In India education is cheap, there is no tuition fee, if you go to the U.S., any kind of education costs $50,000 a year. Here, students are demanding education at a rate at which it is difficult to even afford a cup of coffee today.”
