Rajasthan is to get 22 self-financing universities. Two government-run engineering colleges will also come up in Ajmer and Bikaner by April.

"We have found 22 proposals out of 33 for opening of self-financing universities appropriate," said Ghanshyam Tiwari, Rajasthan Education Minister.

All the universities would get the final clearance in the budget session of the assembly in March, he added.

The engineering colleges to be opened in Ajmer and Bikaner would have 240 seats each. Biotechnology, IT, computer science, electronics and communications would be the main streams, Tiwari said.

The government has also given approval for opening private polytechnic colleges in nine districts. The sanction has been given under the government's public-private partnership programme.
