The present work analysed anisotropic models with variable spatial curvature Bianchi III,VI and II. With a perfect fluid, following Schutz's formalism, problem of non-unitarity evolution is investigated. Explicit solutions are found for Bianchi III and VI model with stiff fluid P = ƿ which clearly have conservation of probability. For other value of ɑ, with proper operator ordering or clever choice of coordinate at classical level can give us the self adjoint extension of Hamiltonian as they lead to inverse square potential thus unitary evolution. With large set of examples, it is concluded that non-unitarity cannot be a generic problem for anisotropic models.
