The committee recommended to U.G.C.for setting up two new departments of Natural Resource Management and Rural Technology. The visiting committee in its report made the following remarks.

“The University need to adopt interdisciplinary approach. It is therefore recommended that the University should establish departments devoted to Natural Resource Management and Rural Technology, instead of setting new departments in the conventional area, in order to meet the need of the region.”

According to the recommend actions of the 10th plan visiting committee the University Grants Commission (U.G.C.) sanctioned two new departments to Rajasthan Vidyapeeth and also allocated funds for running these new departments.
