All Fees Payable to University Raised by 25 per cent BU
Starting academic year 2013 – 14, Bharathiar University has increased the fee payable by all affiliated colleges to the university by 25 per cent.
In a circular dated 17th May, 2013, the Registrar of Bharathiar University has informed all colleges affiliated to the university that “All the fees payable to the university by colleges have been enhanced by 25 per cent from the academic year 2013 – 14 onwards”.
This is applicable to all undergraduate and postgraduate courses.
The circular has come with an annexure on the break up of the fee particulars under various parameters with the existing rate and the corresponding increase.
Colleges are not happy over this “sudden and exorbitant increase”. They have calculated an approximate 210 increase over the existing fee for a student.
A course fee paid by a student is divided into three parts – one payable to the Government ( which is not applicable in the case of Government / aided colleges ), the second part payable to the university, and the third part payable to the college. The enhancement falls in the second category.
C. James Pitchai, Vice – Chancellor of Bharathiar University, says that the university has not enhanced the fee for the last four years. “There is a provision that the university can enhance the fee every year by 10 per cent. Since this was not done for the last few years, we have enhanced it by 25 per cent after a resolution passed by the Syndicate”.
Principles of colleges say that 25 per cent hike is very high and is a burden on the students as well as the institutions. With most of the colleges having completed provisional admissions with students having paid the earlier fee, they say it will be difficult to make do the difference now. Some even say that the university had enhanced the fee once within the last four years.
Students of Government Arts College paid the university fee of 830 as against 580 last year. With the recent increase of 210, students will have to pay 1,040 this year. This is an example of the financial burden that will be borne by the students. While this is the case with a Government college, the financial burden on students studying in self – financing colleges is anyone’s guess.
But Mr. Pitchai says that there is not going to be any financial burden on students because the amount has to be paid by the colleges to the university. However, principals say that the money to be paid to the university by them has to come only from students.
Also, the annexure to the circular mentions “Revision of fees payable by the candidate at the time of admission in UG / PG degree courses from the academic year 2013 – 14”. The ‘candidate’ here clearly means the student of the college, a college principal points out.
