A look at hostel fee at other institutions reveals that while IIT students pay more, those at AIIMS pay less. At Jamia Millia Islamia, students pay Rs 29,750 per year as hostel charges, including mess fee, admission fee, room rent, electricity/water and maintenance. This has to be paid in two installments of Rs 15,350 and Rs 14,400 each semester. This is for students across all years.
At JNU, after the revised rates, any student in the second year in a two-seater room would have to pay Rs 26,500 plus mess charges (around Rs 2,500 per month) as well as utility charges for water, electricity and Wi-Fi separately. For first year students who have a single-seater room, the amount would be roughly Rs 42,100 per year, excluding mess and utility charges.
