They said that as LU has switched from annual to semester examination system, examination fee will naturally be charged twice. LUCKNOW: Following the uproar over up to 128% hike in fees for undergraduate courses, Lucknow University uploaded a new revised fee structure on its website on Monday, bringing down the maximum hike substantially. In the new fee structure, LU has revised the big hike in BCom (self finance) fee, bringing it drastically down from the maximum of 128% to 28.64%.LU officials further clarified that the fee hike is not as huge as is being claimed. The hike in regular fees has been marginal and it’s the exam fee which is now being charged for two semesters in a year that is making the net fee hike appear high as compared to last year. The semester system has been introduced for students’ welfare, they said.“LU has reduced the examination fee in students’ interest but since exams will now be held twice a year under the newly-adopted semester system hence examination fees has to be paid separately for the two semesters, thereby increasing total annual fee.
