Decision on engineering fees soon: Karnataka Minister
Keeping in mind the interests of students, the government will take a decision on engineering fees next week, Higher Education Minister Dr CN Ashwath Narayan said on Friday.
When media persons drew his attention to reports of some colleges hiking fees, he said, “There is no connection between the NEP and hiking fees. The intention of the government is to provide quality education at an affordable cost. Running colleges by collecting heavy fees is not justifiable.” He warned of action against colleges if fee-related complaints are received.
