EAMCET 2022: Full fee reimbursement only for those who get below this rank!!
If a student gets higher rank, only Rs. 35 thousand will be reimbursed under the scheme. Currently, the annual tuition fee in top-10 engineering colleges of Telangana state is more than Rs.80 thousand. While in four or five colleges it is more than Rs.1 lakh, in other colleges it is around Rs.80 thousand. Official statistics show that the fees in top 10 to 20 colleges are more than Rs.55 thousand.
While the government gives the minimum fee of Rs.35 thousand to the students who have crossed the ceiling of ten thousand rank, the tuition fee in many colleges is more than Rs.50 thousand. Hence, the students who have crossed the ceiling rank have to pay the additional fee individually if they join the respective colleges.
Even if the CM responded positively..
A few years ago, the rank ceiling was imposed in the fee reimbursement scheme. Since then, protests have been pouring in from student associations as well as from BC associations and other social groups. There are concerns that the full fee should be reimbursed to BC and EWS students equally to SC, ST and minority students. In this context, BC MLAs and MLCs of the state appealed to CM KCR to lift the rank ceiling on many occasions. Suggestions to this effect have also been made in the BC Declaration proposals. Even after three years have passed since the Chief Minister gave a positive response to this, the issue has not been resolved. With the rank ceiling rule, thousands of BC and EWS engineering students are getting half the fee reimbursement every year, but the parents have to pay the additional fees in the respective colleges.
About half of them are BCs
BCs are half of those who have secured ranks below 10000 in TS EAMCET 2022. According to the statistics of the welfare department, if the general category and EWS, SC, ST and minority students are excluded, BCs have an average of 3,000 to a maximum of 6,000 students. From this calculation, it is clear that the number of students receiving full fee reimbursement is not more than 6,000. While the number of students enrolling in various courses in engineering colleges in the state is one lakh every year, only 6 thousand BC students are getting full fee reimbursement. While 10 percent of the total students are sanctioned with full fees, the share of BCs is only 6 percent.
