If the management authorities of private engineering colleges don't come around in two weeks, the government will issue an ordinance to amend the law on seat sharing and fee structures.

Management authorities of private colleges want the state government to allow them to charge higher fees, as fixed by a committee headed by a retired judge.

The Karnataka high court asked the government to settle the dispute within four weeks, since the CET is coming up.

"We now have just two weeks left. We will try talking to the managements one last time, and if they still refuse to sign the agreement, we will ask the government to issue an ordinance," said a senior official.

The ordinance will amend the Karnataka Professional Educational Institutions (Regulation of Admissions and Determination of Fee) Act of 2006.

As per the report, these management colleges are seeking 25% of hike in fees.
