Association of College Teachers Says One-Stop Admissions Boards Will Eliminate Threat of Capitation Fees at Self-Funded Arts and Sciences Colleges

The Association of University Teachers has called for the establishment of a one-stop orientation for admission to self-funded arts and science colleges.

This would eliminate the capitation system that continues on the sly according to the association.

AUT, while thanking the state government and various political parties for their concerted efforts to ensure that DB Jain College admits students into five undergraduate programs and three postgraduate programs under the assisted section, called on the government to consider his suggestion.

The college, in its announcement released a few days ago, had stated that no capitation fees or donations would be levied for admission.

P. Thirunavukkarasu, President of AUT, said it was after long and arduous protests that the college launched a call for applications in its subsidized programs. “However, most state-assisted colleges continued to charge exorbitant fees and levy capitation fees. Every month of June-July, the association organizes relentless demonstrations. Yet there is no relief for the students and their parents,” he lamented.

“The government should launch a one-stop online admissions process for self-funded colleges, as it had done for government colleges. This would win the goodwill of the people for the government,” he added.
