In a move which would provide respite to students and parents all over city, the Supreme Court has ordered the private engineering institutes in Hyderabad to abide by the existing fee structure set by Telangana Admission and Fee Regulatoty Committee (TARFC). Although the High Court had given permission to two major private institutes – Vasavi Educational Society and Sree Educational Society, to raise the tuition fee, that order would now cease to be irrelevant after the order by the apex body of India.
The Supreme Court has even questioned the Hyderabad High Court on the basis which they permitted the institutes to raise the tuition fee from ₹97,000 set by TARFC to 1.37L and 1.6L respectively. The TARFC has been the primary body to fix the fee structures in educational institutes of the city.
A Reassuring Move
In a sector as sensitive and important to any country’s future as the educational sector, it is really important to have a clear cut authority at the top so that there’s no mismanagement at the core level. With this verdict of the Supreme Court, it is quite reassuring to see this win for the authority instead of the private institutes, whose motives although logical, are also somewhat questionable considering they wanted nearly 40% hike in the fee.
Degree Colleges Lag Behind
On the other hand, Degree Colleges in the city are seeing a tough time as many of seats in private as well as government colleges are going empty due to lack of demand for them. With over 2.44L seats still vacant, some difficult decisions need to be taken by the authorities. This lack of demand can be attributed to poor infrastructure facilities and and near to negligible presence in the NIRF college rankings. The students seem to be attracted more towards private universities or deemed to be universities in other educational hubs like Pune and Bangalore which provide better infrastructural services and better job opportunities due to recognition and goodwill they possess.
