Tuition fee of engineering courses to be costlier from this year
The tuition fee for the engineering courses has reportedly been increased substantially this year, adding to the worries of parents to deal with the added financial burden
HYDERABAD: The tuition fee for the engineering courses has reportedly been increased substantially this year, adding to the worries of parents to deal with the added financial burden. The Telangana State Council of Higher Education (TSCHE) will begin the key process of seat allotment for various streams of engineering courses from Tuesday (September 6). Given that the deadline for fee payment is September 13, 2022, both parents and students are in a bind.
If reports of fee hike are anything to go by, about 36 engineering colleges will be charging an annual fee of more than Rs 1.50 lakhs. The Chaitanya Bharathi Institute of Technology (CBIT) is expected to charge Rs.1.73 lakhs whereas Vasavi College of Engineering, Vardhaman College of Engineering, CVR, and BVRIT Women's Engineering College are likely to charge Rs.1.55 lakhs. Srinidhi, VNR Vigyan Jyoji and MVSR engineering colleges may be charging Rs. 1.50 lakhs as well.
Reports state that 79 colleges petitioned the High Court and obtained interim directions to hike tuition fees for engineering colleges. The Telangana Admission and Fee Regulatory Committee(TSAFRC) also approved the increase.
In addition to burdening all of the students and their parents, the fee increase will primarily affect students from backward communities (BC) and economically backward classes (EBC) who have not achieved a TS EAMCET ranking of 10,000 and below. Additionally, according to the reports, the government has not yet taken a decision about the recommendation to enhance the fee reimbursement for BC and EBC.
