There has been a rise in IIM Ahmedabad fee structure as compared to its last year fee. The fee structure of the upgraded Post Graduate Programme is now INR 19.50 Lacs, which were INR 18.50 lacs last year.

An official statement released by IIM A has justified this hike in fee structure by saying that this rise in fee have tended to lag inflation rate over the past few years. Considering the base year 2009, the current increase in fee structure is still 10% lower than the inflation-adjusted terms as compared to the 2009-2011 fee.

It’s all due to rise in inflation, the institute costs have been rising at a steep rate. IIM A said in the support of fee rise, “Although we continue to drive for efficiency, part of the cost increase is reflected in fee increase."
