The private colleges admitting students through Karnataka Common Entrance Test (KCET) 2012 counseling have been alleged of charging high fee. Aggravated with this many students and parents have complained to KEA (Karnataka Examination Authority). KEA has assured that the matter will be taken up with the higher education and medical education department.
KEA declared grievance-redressal system for additional fee and stated that students can address their complaints to vice-chancellor, Rajiv Gandhi University of Health Sciences for medical and dental courses and to vice-chancellor VTU, Belgaum for technical and architecture courses.
For a government medical seat, the admission fee as fixed by CET is Rs 16700 and Rs 46000 for private unaided minority and non minority colleges. Students claimed that every medical and engineering college is collecting additional fee other than the amount paid at the KEA center. Colleges are asking for additional fee of Rs 4.5 lakh despite of securing a seat through CET.
On July 26, 2012 though KEA allotted sessions for CET rank holders, many students who were given second or third sessions decided to come in the first session itself. To avoid confusion KEA authorities also kept on declaring various available options.
