{tab=Refund Extra Fees}

VTU, KEA urged to refund Extra Fees collected from Students

The National Students’ Union of India has alleged that the Karnataka Examinations Authority and Visvesvaraya Technological University have cheated meritorious students admitted to MBA and MCA during 2011 – 12, by collecting extra fees.

Addressing presspersons here on 4th December, 2012, NSUI coordinator, Dharwad, Rajat Ullagaddimath and coordinators from other districts said while the government had fixed fee of ₹ 24,390 and ₹ 24,890 for MBA and MCA courses respectively in VTU regional and extension centres, more than ₹ 50,000 had been collected from students.

Mr. Ullagaddimath said that VTU had regional PG centres in Bangalore, Mysore, Davangere, Belgaum and Gulbarga, and during 2011 – 12, as many as 542 students had taken admission through counselling conducted by the KEA.

He said that at the time of admission, KEA authorities had asked students to pay a fee of ₹ 53,590, stating that the extra amount would be either adjusted against the fee for third and fourth semesters or refunded.

“But the students were again asked to pay the same amount as fee during third and fourth semesters this year. The students reminded them about the extra amount they had paid previously, but at all the regional centres students were again told to pay the additional amount, which would be refunded. Now the students are writing the third semester examinations, and there has been no mention of refunds,” he said.


He said the students, led by the NSUI, had submitted memorandums to the university authorities and the Higher Education Minister through the respective deputy commissioners. “However, there has been no action on the issue.

The VTU authorities have even threatened students participating in the agitation with dire consequences,” he said.

“Interestingly, the VTU authorities have collected fees as per the government notification for those who had taken admission to the first year during 2012 – 13,” he said.

Mr. Ullagaddimath said that if the students were not refunded the extra amount of ₹ 60,000 each, the NSUI would be forced to intensify the agitation and also approach the court seeking legal remedy.

The NSUI coordinators said that they hoped that a solution in the students’ favour was announced by the government during the Belgaum session. “Otherwise, after 20th December, 2012 we will launch an agitation,” they said.
