The Reagan Administration, embroiled in a fight with Congress over a popular housing program, has backed down and announced it was rescinding a proposed fee increase for the Government National Mortgage Assn., popularly known as Ginnie Mae.

The House last week passed a bill seeking to block the fee increase.
