Dealing with a writ petition filed by Sree Educational Society, justice C V Nagarjuna Reddy of the High Court on Thursday directed the EAMCET-2012 convenor to inform all the students concerned at the time of admissions that subject to final outcome of the writ petition (pending before the court) there was likelihood of an upward revision of the tuition fee from Rs 73,600.
Recently, a similar direction has been given in respect of the Hyderabad-based Vasavi College of Engineering which had sought a hike in the annual fee charged by it.
The college management pointed out that its fee was fixed at Rs 98,700 as against Rs 1.24 lakh per student.
The petitioner in the present case, Sree Educational Society, requested the court to direct the authorities concerned to permit Sreenidhi Institute of Science and Technology, which is also located near Hyderabad, to charge and collect a fee of Rs 1.17 lakh per student taking admission this academic year 2012-13.
The institution was notified at Rs 73,600 fee per student though it was entitled to collect Rs 1.17 lakh, it said
