NEED TO HAVE CAP ON THE FEES CHARGED BY EDUCATIONAL BODIES AND NO CAPITATION FEES.
DO WE NEED EDUCATION LOAN WITH HIGH INTEREST? WHEN WE ARE SHAPING THE FUTURE OF COUNTRY.
WEATHER PRIVATE OR PUBLIC SCHOOL COURSES AND EXAMS ARE SAME, THEN WHY DIFFERENCE IN FEE STRUCTURE.
In the context of Indian law, a capitation fee refers to the collection of payment by educational bodies not included in the prospectus of the institution, usually in exchange for admission to the institution.
The Prohibition of Unfair Practices in Technical Educational Institutions, Medical Institutions and Universities Bill 2010 defines it as any amount that
· Demanded or charged or collected, directly or indirectly, for, or, on behalf of any institution, or paid by any person in consideration for admitting any person as student in such institution; and which is in excess of the fee payable towards tuition fee and other fees and other charges declared by any institution in its prospectus for admitting any person as student in such institution; or
· Paid or demanded or charged or collected, by way of donation, for, or, on behalf of any institution, or paid by any person in consideration for admitting any person as a student in such institution. (
A submission by counsel, F.S. Nariman, in the P.A. Inamdar case (August 2005) defines capitation fee as "something taken over and above what the institution needs by way of revenue and capital expenditure plus a reasonable surplus.") Other definitions for capitation fee also include "any amount, by whatever name called, paid or collected directly or indirectly in excess of the fee prescribed any amount by whatever name called whether in cash or in kind paid or collected or received directly or indirectly in addition to the fees determined and "any amount, by whatever name called, whether in cash or kind, in excess of the prescribed or, as the case may be, approved, rates of fees.
