Banaras Hindu University (BHU) today issued a notification clarifying the speculations about the fee hike. The university stated that the new fee hike system applies only to candidates taking admission in 2022-23.
“The administration of Banaras Hindu University has noticed that some people are sharing and spreading misleading information about the fee structure of BHU on social media and other platforms. It is falsely claiming that the student fee has been increased of BHU, which is false and baseless,” the notification said.
“The decision to nominally increase some elements of the fee structure was taken before the 2019-20 academic session and is not new. In fact, students who for whatever reason ended up paying an amount in addition to the effective fee are refunded the difference. The decision to return the money was made in August 2022 and has been communicated to all institutes and faculties. Any student refund requests are being processed with the highest priority,” the university clarified.
The authorities also appealed to students and stakeholders not to fall for any kind of misinformation.
