With the recent hike in the IIM fees 2019 for PGP Batch 2019-21 by many IIMs, the management education with IIM tag is going to cost even more than before. IIMs are a group of 20 public, autonomous institutes of management education and research in India that offers admission in various postgraduate management programs. The Indian Institute of Management is one of the best choices for studying MBA in India. However, the fees for IIMs is astounding. Unlike the IITs, the semi-govt organizations like IIMs charge hefty fees for their admissions. IIM Fees 2019 may or may not rise further during the final admissions.

IIM Admission Process
There is no difference based on category of students in IIM Fees. However, students from financially weak backgrounds and SC/ST and OBC Category can avail scholarship schemes as per Government of India rule and avail reduction in fees.
The admission in various management program at all the IIMs is mainly on the basis of the Common Admission Test (CAT). There are other selection criteria as well, however, CAT score is the primary shortlisting criteria for admissions to IIMs. The International/overseas applicants get an option to apply using GMAT scores instead of CAT scores. The other selection criteria includes:
- Group Discussion.
- Personal Interview.
- Past academic record.
- Professional accomplishments.
- Work Experience.
Candidates who fulfil the first stage of the admission criteria (CAT) are called for the WAT and PI rounds. Different IIMs as per their admission criteria offers admission to the selected candidates. Most of the IIMs give maximum weightage to Personal Interview and CAT scores for their admissions. However, factors like academic cutoffs, past academic performance, gender diversity, relevant work experience etc. also play a major role in the final selection of a candidate.
Each IIM has its own admission criteria. IIMs do not conduct any common counseling process for their admissions. The new IIMs conduct Common Admission Process (CAP) which includes common WAT and PI rounds. However, the participating institutes declare separate merit lists on their official websites.
