Incensed over the fee structure decided by the government for engineering courses this year, the college managements are planning to move courts, which is likely to delay the admission notification further. The government released the orders on fee structure on Saturday fixing fee ranging from Rs. 30,000 to Rs. 1.13 lakh based on the Admission and Fee Regulation Committee (AFRC) recommendations. Several college managements, however, have questioned the fee structure and are planning to move the court on Monday.
As per the government orders, fee in 195 colleges has been reduced to Rs. 30,000 per annum as against Rs. 35,000 last year. A fee of Rs. 35,000 was fixed for 258 engineering colleges while 176 colleges could secure fees of over Rs. 35,000. No fee structure was decided for 19 colleges and they may not be eligible for admissions.
The CBIT Gandipet topped with the highest fee of Rs. 1,13,300 while students opting for Vasavi College of Engineering have to pay Rs. 1,09,300. The government has also decided to reduce fee for second year students.
