Dear Duffy,
As per your suggestion I went through the following but could not find any clue or work out example to figure out my problem; fitting a mixed model using ‘glmer’ or ‘mler’ so that all the random effects are iid with common variance parameter i.e., the variance covariance matrix will have the common value for diagonal element and zero for the off diagonal elements.
Can you please help me in this regard!

Usually the question is how to make them heterogenous ;)
