Karnataka CET 2014: Finally What Happened?

The state government's decision to keep the Regulation Act 2006 in discontinuation, could be a temporary relief to the students of the state.

Under the Karnataka Professional Educational Institutions (Regulation of Admission and Determination of Fee) Act 2006, it is expected to implement the act by next year, and there will be no government quota seats with lower fee in unaided colleges.

One of the students said, "If they implement the Act 2006, only 5,000 seats will be available in Government colleges and 75,000 seats will be available under ComedK."

Earlier, Management colleges associations across the State demanded to implement the Act of 2006.

After the Government's decision, Karnataka Unaided Private Engineering Colleges Association (KUPECA), Secretary, M K Panduranga Setty said, "The agreement with the government have been a pain. The fee fixed by the government is "Unreasonable and Illogical".

"The college managements won't be able to pay even faculty salaries if the existing fee structure is maintained. The government should first fix a realistic fee structure for admission. Otherwise, private colleges are free to conduct an entrance exam under ComedK and fix their own fee structure. There is legal backing for the same in the form of a Supreme Court directive," he added.

Another KUPECA member, who didn't want to be quoted, said: "We have decided not to go for an agreement unless a proper fee structure is put in place. Otherwise, we will go ahead with admissions."
