Mohanty said the Women’s right course will be part of compulsory paper of General studies and Environment for all
streams of final year students of the graduation course.

Of the total 100-mark compulsory paper, she said the 20-mark questions on Women’s right and law will be given and
it will mandatory to answer by the final year students.

The Principal said S P Singh, Registrar of Chanakya National Law University, Patna, has been authorized to
