Statement: Government has permitted unaided colleges to increase their fees.

Only assumption II is implicit
Either I or II is implicit

Unaided college may want to earn more profit as they are not aided by govt so govt can't dictate their terms therefore they allow college to raise fees.

It will be neither of those because nothing mentioned in I there can be n number of reasons to increase the fees.

For those who are saying that there can be other reasons for increasing fees like infra and so on. Must note that they might not have money for infra and facilities with current fees.

I also agree with @Shreya.

Nothing is mentioned regarding financial credibility. So how assumption 1 is implicit?

There might be many other reasons too for increasing fees of unaided college, and in the statement there is no hint about the financial position.

There can be several other reasons for unaided colleges to increase their fees, such as an improvement in infrastructure, better facilities, etc. I don't think the assumption is implicit.

There is nothing mentioned about the financial credibilities of un-aided colleges and its not necessary if a unaided college is increasing its fees then its because of any financial crisis.
