On Aug 15, Govt has sent a notice to all engineering colleges in the state to provide the fee details of the courses.
According to the DTE official website, only 69 engineering colleges has provided the fee details.
"The government still maintains that admissions will not be approved unless colleges give us fee details. We want details of fees, not only for students admitted through Common Entrance Test (CET), but even the management quota," said Higher Education Principal Secretary Rajneesh Goel.
Govt has issued instructions to DTE that, the colleges which does not provide the fees details, will not be allowed to conduct admissions.
"Admissions will be approved by both DTE and Visvesvaraya Technological University (VTU) only after there is confirmation that students have not been overcharged," Goel said.
For instance, BMS Institute of Technology has put out fee details of students admitted through the CET.
The breakup shows that it has charged each student Rs 13,230 under the head ‘College Miscellaneous Fees'.
PESIT has charged students Rs 15,000 under ‘College Fee' and Sri Jayachamarajendra College of Engineering, Mysore, has charged Rs 11,650 under various categories of other fees.
If there are any complaints from parents or students that a college has collected over and above the fee fixed by the government, the DTE will refer them to the Karnataka State Professional Colleges Admission Monitoring Committee headed by former Karnatak University Vice-Chancellor S K Saidapur for further enquiry.
