Private professional colleges took a step forward and wrote a letter to the government, asking the officials to implement the Karnataka professional Educational Institutional ( Regulation of Administration and Determination of Fee) Act, 2006 from next academic year.
In a letter to the chief minister, MK Panduranga Satty, secretary of Karnataka Unaided Private Engineering Colleges Association (KUPECA), urged the government to form committees as 'the committee, after its appointment, has to start functioning and obtain fee proposals from each institutions before 31st December 2013.
The member institutions of the association have been advised to work out their proposed fee structure along with relevant documents and books of accounts as required. If there is no committee to monitor, the colleges will go ahead with the fee structure they proposed.
With no legislation in place to determine the fees in a private professional college, the private colleges will enter into an agreement with the government every year to fix the fees and seat matrix. Though the legislation was proposed, it has been kept in abeyance for over seven years.
