Top TS engineering colleges charging up to Rs. 20 lakh fees!!
Major private engineering colleges identify those with low rank and collect lakhs of rupees from them. Especially in the name of computer science course, they are collecting without control. Almost all the colleges have set up a special system for selling management quota seats only. Those who come for enquiry, they call the parents and tell them that the seats are running out. They are trying to attract by saying that they will give a discount of Rs.20 thousand to Rs.25 thousand if they book in advance.
35 thousand management seats in the state..
There are up to 35 thousand management seats in private engineering colleges across Telangana state. This year, more than a hundred colleges have reduced seats in mechanical and civil departments and increased seats in computer science, artificial intelligence, cyber security and data science courses. All efforts are being made to meet the demand for those seats. Parents of students hoping to do computer science related courses with their children are queuing up for seats at top colleges.
In the name of Discounts:
Some colleges have specially set up Public Relations Officers (PROs), agents and consultancies right from the moment the EAMCET results were announced. They are getting the phone numbers of the students above 40 thousand rank and are baiting for the seat. A college on the outskirts of the city has simultaneously hired six PROs for this purpose. A deal was made to give consultancies from Rs.75 thousand to Rs.1.50 lakh for each seat. With this, the agents are calling the parents of the students and pressurizing them to book now as the seats are running out. They take parents to the college management to talk about the seat, show that they are giving a discount and pay Rs. 25 thousand if booke a seat in advance.
No Procedures are Followed
Actually 15% NRI quota and 15% seats under local management quota should be filled in the management quota. A separate notification should be given for this. As there is no fee reimbursement for this, only the fee determined by the FRC should be charged. It should be given to those who have JEE rank first. And the rest should be given to EAMCET rank holders and then on the basis of written marks in Inter. The owners of the colleges are not following any of these.
A CSE seat in popular colleges costs Rs.10 lakh to Rs.15 lakh. Even in moderate colleges they are demanding Rs.6 lakh to Rs.9 lakh. This donation is in addition to the annual fee fixed by the government. This amount will be Rs.14 lakh to Rs.20 lakh for four years. It is said that they will give a discount if it is bought at once. Colleges are making arrangements to provide all the necessary documents under NRI quota. According to the rules, 5 thousand US dollars should be taken annually. Apart from this, another Rs. 5 lakh is being added.
The colleges submit the names of the students to whom they have already spoken, to the Higher Education Council. They are saying that it was given according to merit and they themselves applied for the seat. As there is no online mode for these admissions, the college managements are utilising this opportunity. State Admissions and Fees Committee Chairman Swaroop Reddy had previously stated that if anyone complains about not being given a management quota seat despite their merit, the problem will be resolved. He said that even if the college owners apply directly to them, they will send them to the colleges. Last year there were 50 such complaints. FRC sources claim that they did not say what happened again.
It should be replaced by counselling
Like Convenor Quota, Management Quota seats are also to be filled through web counselling. In this regard, we have appealed several times, but the authorities are not paying attention. In this way, the authorities are providing an opportunity for the college management to rob the students. Because of this, talented people are not getting seats.

Must be controlled..
Looting in the name of management quota has become a curse for the poor. Who gave the authority to sell B category seats? There is a need to control these open irregularities.
