No excess fee to be charged by institutions for admission, says govt

Quodsi everti ancillae vim qui lorem persius petentium No excess fee to be charged by institutions for admission, says govt

New Delhi, Dec 15 (ENA)  Considering that some instances of taking excess fee have come to the notice of All India Council of Technical Education (AICTE), the government has called upon students, parents and the general public not to pay any capitation fee or any other fee other than that mentioned in the Prospectus of the institutions for consideration of admission through advertisement/public notice from time to time.

“Aggrieved students/parents can send their complaint to Grievance Redressal Committee of the Institution and, if not satisfied with the decision of the Committee, they can send an appeal to the Ombudsman,” Union Human Resource Development Minister, Smriti Irani said in a written reply to a Lok Sabha question on Monday.

The Srikrishna Committee setup by AICTE has not recommended charging of capitation fee except tuition and development fee. Any institution reported to be charging capitation fee shall be liable for punitive action including withdrawal of approval under the Approval Process Hand Book, she added.

Owing to limited seats in government and reputed private institutions as compared to the number of applications received, needless to say, there is competition among students.

Overall there is surplus capacity in the engineering sector with 8,44,328 seats remaining vacant in 2014-15, she said.  (ENA Bureau)
