“if the students left the course in midstream then for the remaining years the seat would lie vacant and the institute would suffer. In our view an educational institution can only charge prescribed fees for one semester/year, if an institution feels that any particular student may leave in midstream then, at the highest, it may require that student to give a bond/bank guarantee that the balance fees for the whole course would be received by the institute even if the student left in midstream”.
II) The AICTE. New Delhi in its Advt. No.AICTE/Legal/04 (01)/2007, has mentioned the following:-
” In the event of a student / candidate withdrawing before the starting of the course, the wait list candidates should be given admissions against the vacant seat. The entire fee collected from•the student, after a deduction of the processing fee of not more than Rs.1,000/- shall be refunded and returned by the institution/ University to the student I candidate withdrawing from the programme. It would not be permissible for the institutions and Universities to retain the school / Institution Leaving certificates in original. Should a student leave after joining the course and if the seat consequently falling Vacant has been filled by another candidate by the last date of admission, the institution must return the fee collected with proportionate deductions of monthly fee ‘ and proportionate hostel rent where applicable.”
