CHENNAI: The Madras High Court wondered on Tuesday as to why no committee has been constituted to determine the fee for admission of students into polytechnics in the State.

Directing the Additional Government Pleader P Sanjay Gandhi to file a reply in this regard, Justice V Ramasubramanian adjourned further hearing on the writ petition till August 18.

According to petition of the TN Unaided Polytechnic Management Association, filed by its president S Selvamani of Villupuram, the government constituted committees for engineering and medical courses and determined the fees as per the judgements of the SC. However polytechnic colleges were left out. Only GOs were issued by the government then and there, fixing certain fees.

Petitioner prayed for a direction to the government to constitute a fee determination committee and sought to revise the applicability of a GO dated September 11, 2012  to enable the Adi Dravidar Welfare Department to reimburse the existing fee of Rs 30,000 for each student fixed in consonance with the earlier GO dated February 23, 2003, for the academic years 2012-13 and 2013-14.
