When KEA had asked the students to report to their colleges by July 30th, failing to which their admission would be cancelled further. However, the colleges refused to admit students unless they pay the fees as per their demand. The students have complained about this to the KEA department.
The Executive director of KEA, V.Rashmi confirmed that many Engineering colleges were demanding more fees than the KEA had prescribed. She said the KEA does not have the authority to take action against the colleges, adding that she had forwarded the complaints to principal secretary of Higher Education and Medical Education Departments.
She also pointed out that the colleges were demanding for excess fees even from the SC and ST category candidates and that the KEA gives seats to SC and ST students for free, which was really dreadful that the colleges were not sparing even them.
Colleges justified themselves in all ways they could do for. Meanwhile, the Chairperson of RV College of Engineering, MK Panduranga Shetty, defended his college's stance and said it had asked for higher amount of fees because the one prescribed by the KEA is not enough to provide all the facilities to the students.
He further explained as the fees stated by the KEA covers only tuition expenses and does not cover charges for library, laboratory, hostel and university fees and examination fees. Managements of colleges demanding higher fees said that they were willing to provide the evidence of their claims.
Well, its the students who are worried a ton for this confusion. They had a very little time left for admissions for which the last date was Monday (30th July, 2012). The KEA further announced that it cannot extend the date of reporting to the colleges as the Supreme Court had directed that admission process should be completed by July 30, 2012.
Colleges demanding for more fees from students is taking place since long time. Its is the students and parents who are pressurized due to this act. Engineering Colleges which are conducting their admissions say "Pay More or Go Back". But Why is it so? Who is responsible for this?
