The government has prepared a draft bill in which all private colleges irrespective of the fact they are run by private universities or Rajasthan University of Health Sciences – should have a common mechanism of fee determination.

“We have made a committee led by a retired high court judge, which will determine the fees of all the medical colleges,” said Galriya.
