Norms for opening colleges relaxed

By Our Special Correspondent

JAIPUR, JAN. 2. The Rajasthan Government has relaxed the norms for opening colleges in educationally backward areas and girls' colleges, while encouraging the private sector's participation in the drive for promotion of education.

The private colleges will get no-objection certificate without undergoing the lengthy and cumbersome procedure.

The State Government will now first issue the letter of intent to the individual or institution desiring to start a college and carry out an inspection to check compliance with the norms and conditions later. The girls' colleges have been exempted from the procedure and will be issued no-objection straightaway.

An official release issued here pointed out that there were as many as 52 sub-divisions across the State having no college. The State Government will allow running of colleges by the private institutions in the buildings of Government secondary schools in these areas after the school timings.

A previous rule has also been amended to enable the college management to directly approach the university concerned to launch a new faculty or subject without first having to submit an application to the Divisional Commissioner.

Another significant feature of the new norms is the 75 per cent concession provided in the security deposit for starting co-educational colleges in backward areas and girls' colleges in all areas. The management committee of a girls' college will have women as at least 30 per cent of its members.
