Institutional strategies for mobilization of funds other than salary and fees and the optimal utilization of resources

  • Strategies for Mobilization of funds
  • The Government of Telangana regulates tution fees to be collected from the students which will be finalized by TAFRC (Telangana Admission and Fee Regulatory Committee). The tuition fee collected from the students serves the major portion of the funds which are needed to run the Institution. Long-term loans required if any, for capital expenditure or working capital finance are obtained from a panel of external agencies. The acquisition and distribution of funds is taken care of by one of the managing committee members appointed by the management of the Institution. The tuition fee fixed for the college depends on the infrastructure available in campus, the strength of the faculty per department and allotted student’s strength by JNTUH for individual branches. TAFRC collects data from relevant colleges annually and evaluates it to finalize the student’s fees for undergraduate and postgraduate courses. In order to meet the cost of revenue, financial requirements are met with short-term loans from a panel of identified agencies such as banks and financial companies.

  • Financial Resources of the institution are:
  • 1. Admission fee.
  • 2. Transport fees collected from students.
  • 3. Application Fees.
  • 4.NBA Fees.
  • 5. Examination Fees.
  • 6. Hostel Fee.
  • 7. Government funds-UGC/DST.
  • 8. Grants From individuals, philanthropist.
  • 9. Alumni Contribution.
  • 10. Consultancy service.
  • 11. Fee for conduct of various examinations of government/private organizations.
  • The tuition fees for students of economically & other backward classes, minorities and SC/ST are funded or financed through scholarships from the State Government of Telangana. The admission department of the college supports with necessary assistance for the eligible students to apply for a scholarship. As the sanctioning process and the release of the fees from the government is often delayed, the college management sometimes opts for short term loans through Banks and other Financial Corporations to meet the monthly revenue and recurring expenditures which are repaid on receiving funds from the government.

  • Strategies for optimal utilization of resources
  • A policy has been established to make optimum use of non-monetary resources. The institute raises additional resources by allowing individuals or organizations to make use of the infrastructural facilities at a price during holidays and vacations.The institute rents the halls and playgrounds for activities such as short films, film shootings, sports events and audio and video production. College hostels are also used to accommodate students attending sports meetings and conferences.
