A new fee structure for private engineering colleges will be implemented for the block session 2022-2025. To that end, the Telangana Admission and Fee Regulatory Committee (TAFRC) is revising the fee structure that will be in effect beginning with the academic year 2022-23.
The TAFRC had invited applications from private colleges for the next three-year block session, which was due this year. The CBIT fixed a fee of Rs.1.73 lakh per year, which was the highest of any engineering college in the state. Another college, MGIT, had its fees fixed at Rs.1.60 lakh per year. Similarly, nearly 30 colleges got their revised over Rs.1 lakh per annum.
However, the Committee decided to keep the existing fee for the current academic year due to the hardships faced by students and parents as a result of the Covid-19 pandemic.
With the TAFRC continuing to use the old fee structure for the academic year 2022-23, 79 private engineering colleges petitioned the High Court, which issued an interim order allowing them to collect the increased fee. It did, however, request that colleges refund the difference if the TAFRC-notified fee was less than the amount collected from students.
Due to discrepancies in the audit reports, the TAFRC has resumed its audit of financial statements submitted by the colleges’ management.
“We discovered flaws in the audit reports. As a result, auditing is being performed once more. Once completed, a new fee structure will be established and communicated,” a TAFRC official said.
Meanwhile, the committee has summoned 15 colleges, including CBIT, for personal hearings on Monday to determine tuition fees for the block session 2022-25.
During the first phase of admission counseling for the Telangana State Engineering, Agriculture, and Medical Common Entrance Test (TS EAMCET) 2022, 60,208 seats were allotted in 176 colleges, with over 43,000 seats confirmed by students.
On September 28 and 29, the second phase of admission counseling will begin with registration, payment of the processing fee, and slot booking for certificate verification.
Certificate verification is set for September 30, and web options will be available from September 28 to October 1, with provisional seat allotment orders available on October 4.
