NRI students to be charged higher fee in Kerala

Written by: Staff

Dubai, July 6 (UNI) Expatriates from Kerala have expressed shock over the state government's decision to let self-financing colleges to charge five times the normal tuition fee from their children seeking professional education.

President of the national committee of the Kerala Muslim Cultural Centre (KMCC) in UAE Puthoor Rahman said his organisation is planning to file a writ petition in the Kerala High Court.

The CPM-led government has allowed charging exorbitant fee from children of NRIs, who are also allocated a 15 per cent reservation of seats.

General Secretary of the Indian Overseas Congress Punnakkan Muhammad Ali said it is organising a signature campaign among students from all over the UAE and will send them across to the government.

Mr Ali said political parties treat Gulf NRIs as 'milch cows' and they visit the region to collect funds and dole out assurances.
