Government owes Rs 5,000 crore to the colleges in the form of fee reimbursement to 14 lakh students pursuing engineering, medical, degree, post-graduate degree and intermediate courses

President of Telangana Private Degree and PG Colleges Managements Association Ramana Reddy explaining the severity of the issue said that many times they had met Finance Minister and Finance Secretary but they didn't pay any heed to their pleas.

He further said that dues have been pending for the academic years 2014-15 and 2015-16 and only Rs 275 crore has been released by the government in June this year.

"We asked the government to clear the dues to private degree colleges in three installments with a gap of two months between each installment, but the government had not responded to it," he said.

No strike notice has been served by the private college managements, but Ramana said that they have informed orally about the strike. However, the government hasn't responded so far.

"Government owes Rs 5,000 crore to the colleges in the form of fee reimbursement to 14 lakh students pursuing engineering, medical, degree, post-graduate degree and intermediate courses," Ramana said.
