The government has decided to introduce a bill during the Budget session of the Assembly to provide legislative backing to the existing Admissions and Fee Regulatory Commission (AFRC) as per the directive issued by the Supreme Court to States.

The decision was taken at a meeting here on Friday where Chief Minister N. Kiran Kumar Reddy reviewed the status of AFRC in the light of the problems faced by the government in implementing uniform fees for professional courses in private institutions.

It was attended by Deputy Chief Minister C. Damodar Rajanarsimha, who holds Higher Education portfolio, and officials.
