The Karnataka State Government has decided to implement the Karnataka Professional Educational Institutions (Regulation of Admission and Determination of Fee) Act, 2006 from 2015-16, but the process is going very slowly.
Though the government is saying that they are making efforts to implement the act, but the process are in initial stages.
Implementation of Act 2006 will lead to single Common Entrance Exam for professional courses in Karnataka. Currently, Karnataka Examinations Authority and ComedK, bodies are conducting separate entrance exam.
Karnataka Higher Education Minister R V Deshpande said, "We are putting efforts to implement Act, 2006. There is a need for a formula. We are in the process of framing one. Government had already formed the fee fixation committee and admission monitoring committees."
The private managements have asked the minister for a week's time to take a call on the Act, 2006.
Karnataka Unaided Private Engineering Colleges Association secretary Panduranga Shetty said, "We have submitted all our accounts. Once the fees are fixed, we will see whether they are fair or not."
The delay in the process of implementing the Act would put pressure on parents and students preparing for their class 12 board exam. The delay in taking a final call will delay the consensual agreement. It also means the government will take longer to finalize the fee structure and seat-sharing.
