The most desired management course will become costlier from this year. Some Indian Institutes of Management (IIMs) have increased the fees while others are mulling over to increase it by 5-17 percent for 2018-2020 batch. The fees of two-year course in top IIMs like Ahmedabad, Bangalore, Calcutta and Indore to newly opened IIMs at Amritsar, Trichy, Udaipur, Rohtak and Ranchi will range from ₹9 lakh to ₹22 lakh. The IIMs have increased their fees because of the inflation and higher operational cost.

Faculty salaries go up, cost of messes goes up, cost of hospitality, security, infrastructure, security goes up, thus necessitating a hike,” reported The Economics Times.
