IIM-Calcutta hiked its fees by 17.3 per cent, IIM-Kozhikhode 23.1, IIM-Ranchi 19 and IIM-Trichy 20.

"The fees in IIMs are not linked to the fees in other institutions in the country. IIMs are autonomous institutions and are governed by their respective memorandum of associations and rules of the society which include the fixing of fees and other charges as per provisions contained therein," Irani said.

"The hike in tution fee has not adversely affected poor and lower-class students since institutes extend financial assistance, including up to full tuition fee waiver and maintenance allowance, to needy students," the minister said.
