Delhi University Admission 2022: Delhi University will increase the fees for its undergraduate courses from the academic session 2022-2023 by introducing fees under certain heads and increasing the University Development Fund.
The amount is remitted to the university, under certain heads, as part of the fee structure for university students. With the stated objective of rationalising the fee structure across various colleges and “ensuring uniformity across various heads of expenditure”, the University has notified that the students of all colleges will be charged under 9 heads.
Of these, University Students Welfare Fund, University Development Fund and University Facilities and Service Charges, and Economically Weaker Section Support University Fund will be remitted.
Among these, the University Development Fund has been increased from Rs 600 to Rs 900, a decision that was passed by the University Executive Council early this year based on the recommendations of a committee which had cited a reduction of capital grants by the University Grants Commission.
“The increase in the development fee has been a done deal for a while. Apart from this, the new components are the head for an EWS fund and the University students’ welfare fund, both of which are Rs 100 each. So the total increase to the university’s fees amounts to around Rs 500 for a student. What the new notification has done is that it has reorganised the earlier heads, because of different fee structures from college to college,”
Delhi University Admission 2022 Notification:

However, former Executive Council member Abha Dev Habib said that with the Rs 500 head for University Facilities and Service Charges, the increase is around Rs 1,000.
