Bill on fees in professional colleges tabled

The agreement was reached for the academic years 2008-09, 2009-10 and 2010-11 to protect the interests of students of Karnataka domicile and students belonging to educationally and socially backward classes. The government plans to enter into a similar agreement with the private institutions for the academic year 2011-12.

The government proposes to keep the Karnataka Professional Educational Institutions (Regulation of Admission and Determination of fee) Act, 2006, in abeyance if the Bill is passed in both Houses of the legislature.

Religious Bill

The government also tabled the Karnataka Religious Institutions and Charitable Endowments (Amendment) Bill, 2011, seeking to bring in sweeping changes in the administration of Muzarai temples in the State.

The Bill proposes to set up management committees at both State and district levels to administer temples and to settle disputes.

The Bill also proposes to keep all temples attached to mutts out of the purview of the Act and protect the hereditary rights of the archaks and temple servants and to allow their legal heirs to continue in service. A provision for registration of private temples was also made in the Bill.

More importantly, the Bill prohibits collection of funds from public in the name of temples by private individuals and organisations.
