KOCHI: The Admission Supervisory Committee for Professional Colleges has resolved two complaints related to collection of additional fee from students at the Kannur Dental College and the Devaki Amma Memorial Pharmacy College at Chelembra.

The committee observed that the management of the Kannur Dental College had collected Rs.87,000 from students who got admission in 2007-08 (merit quota) instead of the prescribed Rs.20,000 annual tuition fee and Rs.1.75 lakh interest-free refundable caution deposit.

The committee directed the management to include the excess Rs.67,000 (deducting Rs.20,000 from Rs.87,000) collected from the students in the caution deposit (total Rs.1.75 lakh). The students need to pay the remaining Rs.1. 08 lakh within 10 days.

In the case filed by students (merit quota, 2007-08 batch) of the Devaki Amma Memorial Pharmacy College, the committee directed the management to collect only Rs.20,000 annual tuition fee and Rs.1 lakh interest-free refundable caution deposit from the students. The students had complained that the management had collected Rs.35,000 from them.
