Karnataka government might pass ordinance to end CET row
Article Posted: 20 April 2014

If private engineering college managements donít come around in two weeks, the government is likely to issue an ordinance to amend the law on seat sharing and fee structures.

The government hasn't been able to reach a decision with the private engineering colleges, and the fight has reached the High Court of Karnataka.

College managements want the government to allow them to charge higher fees, as fixed by a committee headed by a retired judge.

Last fortnight, the High Court asked the government to settle the dispute within four weeks since the Common Entrance Test (CET) is coming up in the first week of May.

The ordinance will amend the Karnataka Professional Educational Institutions (Regulation of Admissions and Determination of Fee) Act of 2006. On Saturday, top officials of the Department of Higher Education met to debate their options.

The government is on good terms with medical and dental colleges, and only needs to discuss terms with private engineering college managements.

Private colleges have formulated their own fee structure and submitted it to the fee determination committee constituted by the government. At the very least, they are seeking a 25 per cent hike in fees.
