Telangana State government has created its own Admission Fee Regulatory Committee (AFRC), soon after forming its own State Council of Higher Education.
However, the T govt has made no changes in the fee structure of private and unaided institutes in higher education.
“It will take much time to revise the fee structure. Since admissions to many of the courses has already begun, no changes in the existing fee structure is expected in this academic year,” said T Papi Reddy, Chairman, Telangana State Council of Higher Education (TSCHE).
Officials say the new TS AFRC may take some time to begin functioning. So far, only the chairman of the committee has been appointed and rest of the members are yet to be appointed.
Apart from the Chairman, the committee will also have experts from various fields like technical education, finance medical education and legal education back grounds.
A vice-chancellor of a university, a representative from the government finance department, a representative from All India Council of Technological Education (AICTE), Medical Council of India (MCI), Bar Council, National Council for Teachers’ Education (NCTE) as the members.
The Telangana government on July 22 issued order forming the new AFRC in the State. The 11-member committee, headed by retired High Court judge, Justice P Swaroop Reddy, would be responsible for regulating the fee structure of private and unaided institutes of higher education in the State.
