St Francis Xavier Degree College, King Koti, though affiliated to Osmania University has been accused of charging fees way over the limit set by the varsity for its affiliated colleges.

“We fill seats offline under management quota and are not a part of Degree Online Services Telangana (DOST) under which the admission for undergraduate courses is conducted. We are affiliated to OU but does not follow its fee regulations. We also have a stay from the court so technically there can’t be any case,” said Hima Bindu, admission coordinator of the college.
