Hyderabad News: 80% of engineering colleges agreed to settle for a nominal fee hike of 4000 INR for engineering course fee. It was 31000 till now and will be 35000 from now, if the government gives a green signal to this fee. This fee won’t change for the next two years but some colleges still are against this decision. Almost 133 colleges still are not satisfied with 35000. They are demanding a fee more than 40000.
The present scenario suggests that 35000 fee will be approved by the government. While this is the case of fee hike, some colleges are completely against the rules which were set recently. According to the new proposed rules, the government has complete authority over the affiliation process of the colleges. This seems to be creating friction between college managements and the government which is leading them to move to court against government.
A meeting of representatives of colleges and cabinet sub-committee members took place on Sunday 12 August. It was ordered that an undertaking should be signed by 580 colleges that they agree this fee hike. Other excerpts from the meeting are that the fee for MBA, MCA, M pharmacy and Mtech programs will not be hiked this year. Now that the fee row is seemingly ending, the committee will soon announce the dates for EAMCET counselling.
