There is no change in the fee structure for self-financing engineering colleges in the State for 2011-12.
The fee for B.E / B.Tech / B.Arch courses under government quota in non-accredited courses will be Rs. 32, 500 and it will be Rs. 40,000 for accredited courses.
For management quota seats, the fee will continue to be Rs. 62,500 for both accredited and non-accredited courses, said Justice N.V. Balasubramanian, Chairman, Committee on Fixation of Fee for Self-financing Professional Colleges.
“We will take action if parents and students have specific complaints with proof of violation by any college collecting excess fee,” he told a press conference on Tuesday.
In an extensive review of the data provided by the self-financing engineering colleges, it became evident that the income was more than expenditure in a majority of the colleges following the present fee structure, Mr. Balasubramanian said, explaining the rationale behind not increasing the fee from last year.
The committee had invited proposals from the 464 self-financing engineering colleges in proper forms. Only 191 colleges had sent back the proposals despite repeated reminders.
On review, it was found that only 76 colleges had sent audited copies and 115 colleges had not submitted audit accounts or quarterly TDS statements of staff. A few engineering colleges were content with the fee of Rs.32,500
