Govt. reaches an agreement with management on the fee structure

The fee collected by self-funded state engineering schools will remain unchanged in the 2022-23 academic year. The government has reached an agreement with the directorates on the fee structure and the allocation of seats.

Kerala Self-Financing Engineering College Managements Association (KSFECMA) and Association of Managements of Christian Autonomous Engineering Colleges of Kerala (AMCAECK) signed the agreements with the government.

Retaining the existing seating matrix, the Entrance Examination Commissioner (CEE) will allocate 50% of the seats in colleges to students based on a ranked list prepared in accordance with merit and reservation guidelines.

The seats occupied by the EWC are further divided into two – low income group and others. Annual tuition fees for both groups will be ₹50,000 each, while students belonging to the latter category will additionally have to pay an annual special fee of ₹25,000.

Of the remaining seats, 35% (out of 50%) will be filled by managements (as part of the management quota) with students from the Kerala Engineering Architecture Medical (KEAM) and Joint Entrance Examination (JEE) lists. The remaining 15% can be filled under the Non-Resident Indian (NRI) quota.

Annual tuition fees of up to ₹99,000 and ₹1.5 lakh will be charged to students who gain admission under the management and NRI quotas respectively. Students in these groups will be required to pay an annual special fee of ₹25,000, in addition to an interest-free refundable deposit of ₹1.5 lakh.

In the case of colleges affiliated to AMCAECK, 50% of the seats will be filled by the CEE, 35% will be filled by the respective managements and the remaining 15% in the NRI category. The CEE will allocate 10% of the total number of places among students belonging to the community to which the educational body belongs. However, in the case of the Latin Catholic community, the CEE will allocate 15% of the total number of seats among the students belonging to the community concerned.

While an annual fee of ₹75,000 will be charged by AMCAECK-aligned institutions, students except those belonging to Scheduled Castes, Scheduled Tribes, Other Eligible Communities (OECs) or Community anglers, will be required to make an interest-free refundable deposit of ₹1 lakh. Students admitted under the NRI quota will be required to pay up to $7,000 in addition to fees payable by other applicants. However, they will not be required to pay the refundable sum of ₹1 lakh.

Costs for SC, ST, OEC applicants and those from the fishing community will be borne by the government.
