KOCHI : The Self-financing Engineering College Managements Association has decided to go ahead with its own admission process irked at the government delay in finalising this years fee and seat-sharing pattern.
G.P.C. Nayar, president, said here on Monday that the association representatives were still open for discussions, if the government took the initiative immediately.
�But there will be no compromise on the demand for fixing the annual fee at Rs.1.25 lakh for all the seats available in self-financing engineering colleges. The association has demanded that this fee will be applicable for the students being admitted under the government quota in self-financing colleges, he said.
Stating that the inordinate delay in finalising the admission and fee pattern would only result in seats remaining vacant in self-financing colleges, Mr. Nayar said that over 3,000 seats had remained vacant in self-financing colleges in the State last year following the delay in completing the admission procedure.
