Stop fleecing of students

Sir, -- Private managements should not be allowed to fleece students in the name of higher education. Private institutions have a big role in promoting professional education, but only those who meet the Government norms should be allowed to run self-financing institutions. The Government has to ensure that those who are admitted on merit quota need pay only the amount payable in Government colleges. For the management quota, the Government should evolve a permanent mechanism to recommend a reasonable rate.
