In a first, the Permanent Committee for Fixation of Fee in Self-Financing Professional Colleges on Tuesday announced a fee structure for teacher education and training courses for colleges in the State.

Addressing a press meet here, committee head and former Justice N V Balasubramanian said the panel has sent letters to all colleges offering teacher education and training courses, asking them to submit their revenue and expenditure statements with supporting documents and fee proposals.  The committee received replies from 788 self-financing colleges in the State.

Further, 121 inspection teams were constituted to visit those institutions which failed to submit the relevant documents and proposals or those which submitted proposals without audited statements.  The fee structure, which was fixed after a detailed analysis of the proposals and representations made by the public, would be applicable till 2015, Balasubramanian said. In due course, a committee would be formed to monitor the implementation of the fee structure, he added. 

Meanwhile, Tamil Nadu Teachers Education University Registrar A R Veeramani said that affiliation for four colleges have been withdrawn as it was found that they flouted basic norms and lacked infrastructure.

Several other colleges have been issued notices with regard to the  infrastructure provided to students, the registrar said, while adding that the students could verify the status of the colleges by visiting the  university website.  

Stringent  measures will be put in to monitor the quality in teacher education institutes, Veeramani said.  Any complaints against the institutions could be forwarded to the University for action, the Registrar informed.
