Cost-based fee structure

Sir, -- Fixing the fee structure is to be entrusted to an independent committee consisting of professionals and a representative each of the Government and management of private self financing colleges. The committee will be in a position to analyse the costs involved in setting up and running a quality professional institution. The committee should also assess and review the facilities available in the college from time to time. Managements of private institutions have a tendency to inflate the figures and the Government by considering many factors can fix the fee, which may not be acceptable to the management. Hence, the need for a special committee.
