    Former minister Harish Rao wrote an open letter to Chief Minister Revanth Reddy about the increase in TET exam fees. He requested the CM to lower the fees as it was causing a significant burden on unemployed youth.

    Harish Rao highlighted the substantial financial impact on students due to the steep rise in TET fees. He criticized the Telangana government for neglecting the fee subsidies provided to SC, ST, and Divyang students, which he viewed as unfair and dishonest. The former minister emphasized that charging high fees for government job exams was unjust, especially for students facing financial challenges.

    Comparing the current TET fees to previous years, Harish Rao pointed out the significant increase under the current government, with fees now reaching Rs. 1,000 for one paper and Rs. 2,000 for two papers. He noted that these fees were double those of the CBSE-conducted CET exams. The absence of fee concessions for reserved category students in TET exams was a major concern for Harish Rao, who cited examples of other exams providing such concessions.

    Harish Rao expressed disappointment in the Telangana government’s failure to offer fee concessions for reserved category students in TET exams, unlike other national and state-level entrance exams. He highlighted the protests by B.Ed and D.Ed candidates against the fee hike and lack of subsidies for reserved students. Harish Rao warned that his party would advocate for students and unemployed individuals if the government did not address the issue promptly.
