There will be more seats on offer for Post Graduate Programme (PGP) in Management aspirants at IIM Raipur, but at a higher fee. The Indian Institute of Management Raipur will add 20 more students to PGP 2015-17, as the premier institute aims to cater to the dynamic market. Now, the total PGP strength has increased to 140 from 120.
Indian Institute of Management Raipur has decided to hike the tuition fees for its two-year flagship PGP in Management by 10% from the current tuition fee of Rs. 6,60,000. The revised tuition fee for PGP will now be Rs. 7,26,000 and the total PGP fee for the academic session 2015-17 will be Rs. 10,51,000. The hike is attributed to the escalation in the Cost Index in the previous three years.

The admission policy of PGP awards 32% weightage to CAT score, 30% to Personal Interview and Written Ability Test.
