Hyderabad: Mahatma Gandhi Institute of Technology (MGIT) students staged a dharna against the college management here on Friday alleging that the college is forcing them to pay excess fee more than what was fixed by the Telangana Admission and Fee Regulation Committee (TAFRC).
According to the protesting students, the TAFRC has fixed Rs 1 lakh for the admission into the MGIT for the block period of 2016-17 to 2018-19.
However, along with the fee fixed by the TAFRC, the college is asking them to pay Rs 60,000 more citing that they were allowed by the State High Court, the protestors alleged. Terming the management and principal are threatening to detain them if they raise questions on the fee issue, the students have taken out a protest demanding justice.
Terming the attitude of management illegal the Telangana Parents Association demanded that the State government rein in the highhandedness of the private engineering college managements forcing students to pay excess fees.
TPA president N Narayana said recently the Supreme Court had made it clear tasking even the High Courts should not interfere in the fixation of the fees and the decision of the fee regulation committee is final and binding.
