No additional fee, says Deshpande

Minister for Higher Education R V Deshpande on Monday stated that the revised fee structure for engineering course this year includes all components and students need not pay any additional amount, reports DHNS.

While a section of the media reported that students would have to pay additional fee apart from the government stipulated fee, Deshpande claimed that the reports were false.

A recent government order also states that, depending on which slab the colleges fall into, unaided colleges will collect Rs 45,000 or Rs 50,000 from students.
