Cong criticises govt over ‘NRI quota fees’ in institutes
The Gujarat Pradesh Congress Committee (GPCC) threatened to pose legal challenge to the state government if it failed to comply with the Supreme Court direction of giving scholarship out of NRI quota fees to deserving students in professional courses from the next academic year in the state. It has alleged that the government is delaying the implementation of the Apex Court order to benefit private college managements.
GPCC spokesperson Manish Doshi Sunday criticising the government said, "The fees for professional courses have increased nearly four times in the past five years and students who cannot afford high fees are forced to leave the course midway."
Doshi also urged the government to set a fast, easy and transparent system to implement the court ruling for the larger benefit of the poor students who are pursuing their study on borrowed money.
