    Deemed Universities charging very high capitation fees.

    Deemed Universities in India are autonomous institutions, recognized by the UGC and Ministry of Human Resources and Development. They have the right to start their own courses and award their own degrees.

    In India, there are 170 Deemed Universities in India. The admission of students is done by receiving big capitation fees. Only the children of the rich can study in these colleges. Even students with low marks in plus 2, without attending any entrance test, get admission in deemed universities. Most Deemed Universities don't say that this is a capitation fee but charging this fee by naming training fees and any other names.

    The University Grants Commission has decided to impose a fine of Rs.10 lakh if any Deemed University charges any capitation fee from students. This is a good decision taken by the government.

    What is your opinion about Deemed Universities charging very high capitation fees for the admission of students?.

    These days many old engineering colleges which got a good name in that place is applying for autonomous status and Deemed university status. These days we see many such institutes. Many private engineering colleges in Hyderabad, are deemed universities or an autonomous institute. But one good thing I have noticed in these institutes is that they are taking care of the discipline aspect of the student very well. If a student is absent for a class an SMS will go to his parents.

    But as mentioned by the author they are charging very high amount towards the fee for the people who did not get a good rank in the entrance test under management quota. But majority of the seats are to be filled through common entrance test only.

    In Telangana, the state government is monitoring the fee structure of these colleges for the students who are joining through entrance test. But for management quota, there is no control. So these seats are being filled by the children of rich people only.

    Of late, we can see the surge of so many deemed universities offering much stress on the development of personalites of the admitted students, providing them the oppurtunities of enjoying the lectures of some veteran scholars in different fields and monitoring the progress of students. Even some of the private engineering colleges have been converted to deemed universities with the consistent effort of the management.
    The positive part is that such universities pay individual to the students but the other part is to pay a hefty fee to the management. Such payment proves costly for many having less income and this aspect has to be seen by the government so that there is no exploitation of the students coming from low income group.

    The author has raked up the valid and important issue through this post and I am also closely watching so many deemed universities which were once under the aegis of the central and state universities and were following the strict fees structures and now charging heavy fees comparable to International course as they show the proof of having got the National accreditation nod and also awarded A plus to start any new course which is Industry friendly and thus attract more campus placements and that is why there is rush for deemed university colleges and they are charging hefty fees.

    Many private educational institutions charge hefty fees in the name of capitation fee or donation etc and have made it a practice for raising funds and revenue. This is not in a good taste and it is good to note that now UGC is taking measures against it.
    Thoughts exchanged is knowledge gained.
