The state government, led by Chief Minister YS Jagan Mohan Reddy, has taken steps to ensure that affordable education is accessible and available to meritorious students from poor and middle class families. Officials say quality education is unavailable to many who deserve it but cannot afford it because private universities charge extra fees.
Professor Hemchandra Reddy said, “Our Hon’ble Chief Minister’s vision is to provide quality and affordable education to every student in AP. For a long time, many students from poor or middle class families were or were under extra burden. That is why the government has decided to fix the fees. ”
The government will allocate 35 per cent of the ‘reserved’ seats for candidates, on the basis of general entrance examinations conducted at the state level. No university will have the right to charge more fees or give more seats than the seats reserved under the quota.
However, when it comes to Deemed University, the regulatory body UGC, this policy does not apply, but the government has already written to the UGC, asking the government to allow it to do so, keeping in mind the larger good. And waiting for a response, officials said.
