The Haryana government said on Friday that it would soon enact a law to regulate admissions and fix the fee structure in private technical education institutes in the state.

The decision to enact 'Haryana private technical education institutions (regulation of admission and fixation of fee) Act, 2012' was taken in a meeting held here under the chairmanship of chief minister Bhupinder Singh Hooda.

The government would constitute a state committee for regulation of admissions and fee in all universities offering technical courses, all engineering colleges, polytechnics and other technical education institutes both in government as well as private sector, an official release said.

It was also decided the person holding the post of chairperson of the state admissions and fee committee should have experience in public administration at senior position or he should have held the post of vice-chancellor in a university or a retired judge of high court or supreme court.

The upper age limit of the chairperson and members would be 70 years and their tenure would be of three years.

The committee would also have the powers to impose a fine of minimum Rs 5 lakh and up to Rs 10 lakh in case of violation of its recommendations.

The state government has already enacted the 'Haryana private health sciences educational institutions Act, 2012' to regulate admissions and fee in medical and nursing colleges.

At present, the state has 29 universities out of which 19 are offering technical courses such as BE, B Tech, MBA, B Pharma, M Pharma, MCA, architecture, hotel management and applied arts.
