Fee Structure for Professional Courses Revised in Karnataka

Fee in government and aided colleges cut from Rs. 15,000 to Rs. 8,590

Shimoga: Karnataka Minister for Higher Education D.H. Shankaramurthy said on Saturday that because of the discussions with the managements of private professional colleges after the adoption of the Bill pertaining to admissions and fee structure in the light of the direction of the Supreme Court order, the Government had been able not only to get more seats but also reduce the fees in government and aided institutions. Addressing presspersons at Kuvempu University near here, he said earlier the fee for engineering, medical and dental courses in the free seat category was fixed at Rs. 15,000, Rs. 35,000 and Rs. 35,000, respectively, in government and aided institutions, while in the payment-seat category, it was fixed at Rs. 35,000, Rs. 2,90,000 and Rs. 2,30,000, respectively.

He said that as the number of government and aided professional colleges was small, the fee for them had been reduced from Rs. 15,000 to Rs. 8,590 in the engineering section. The difference in the revised fee structure would be borne by the Government.

Mr. Shankaramurthy said that in unaided private engineering colleges the Government had 60 per cent of seats of which 40 per cent had been reserved under the free-seat category with a fee of Rs. 15,000 and 20 per cent of seats under the payment category with a fee of Rs. 85,000.

In view of the revision of the fees in this category too, he said, the fee for free seats would remain unchanged at Rs. 15,000 while that of payment seats had been reduced from Rs. 85,000 to Rs. 60,000. The Government to private institutions by way of subsidy would pay the difference of Rs. 25,000.

He said for the medical category, 30 per cent of seats in private unaided medical colleges would be earmarked as free seats with the fee fixed at Rs. 35,000. The fee for 15 per cent of payment seats had been reduced from Rs. 2.90 lakh to Rs. 2 lakh. The fee for 15 per cent of payment seats in the dental category had been reduced from Rs. 2.30 lakh to Rs.1.50 lakh.

He said the Government would pay the difference amount of Rs. 90,000 for medical seats and Rs. 80,000 for dental seats to private institutions by way of subsidy. Mr. Shankaramurthy said that it had been decided to leave five per cent of the total seats in the three categories to the discretion of private institutions owned by linguistic and religious minorities.
