Education is not business

Sir, -- The State Government should have the last word in fixing the fee structure and admission norms. Education is not business, but a service to humanity and the managements do have a social obligation. Even in the case of private bus services, the fare is fixed by the Government. Why not apply the same yardstick while fixing the fee structure in self-financing colleges?
