The Delhi High Court has dismissed the plea of some students of the National Institute of Fashion Technology (NIFT) related to fee hike. The court has rejected this plea by saying that the plea is arbitrary or oppressive.

The plea was raised by 4th-year students claiming that the fees hike is vague and cannot be accepted. The court has passed this order on a plea by the students raising grievance that the fees have been hiked by 10 percent for NRI quota students and 5 percent for the Non-NRI quota students.

Justice Jayant Nath while giving order on the plea said that the fee hike cannot be termed arbitrary or oppressive. There are no grounds to warrant any interference by this court. There is no merit in the present petition and the same is dismissed.
