The Lok Satta Party today demanded that the State Government end the agony of students and parents over delayed admissions to professional colleges by undertaking immediate counseling.

In a media statement, Lok Satta Party General Secretary Katari Srinivasa Rao wanted the Government to resolve the fee issue immediately in the wake of the High Court and Supreme Court judgments so that students do not lose precious time in the academic year.

Pointing out that the courts have given the freedom to certain colleges to fix the tuition fees based on the infrastructure and other facilities they have, Mr. Srinivasa Rao said that the Government should ensure that the fee charged by them is rational and reasonable and reimburse the colleges the fees for students admitted to them under the convener quota. The Government should reimburse whatever fee it fixes for all other colleges to students who get seats under the convener quota

Mr. Srinivasa Rao also suggested that students be rid of the bother of applying individually to many colleges for a seat under the management quota. Instead, the managements should work out a method under which a student has to put in only one application.
