UGC identifies 611 acres of land for Central Tribal University in Andhra Pradesh


Visakhapatnam: A main team visited Vizianagaram on Wednesday to recognize suitable land for the Central Tribal University (CTU). The team led by New Delhi-based University Grants Commission secretary Prof. Rajnish Jain recognized 611 acres of land in between Gajapathinagaram and Salur along the Raipur highway roadway.

Talking To Deccan Chronicle, the CTU vice-chancellor Prof. TV Kattimani said that the team recognized 611 acres of land in 2 blocks and fulfilled collector Suryakumari to block this land for the CTU with prior all clearances and non-objections from the state federal government.

The group also recommended the state revenue department check the land is practical for the building of buildings, water facilities apart from road and rail connectivity. The group also asked for the state federal government to formally sanction the land at the earliest, so that they can begin the works like building of the buildings in a phased way.

“We are currently running the CTU at a leased structure assigned at the Andhra University PG Centre here. When the CTU is prepared with its own buildings and infrastructure, we will be moved from here. Last year almost 180 students were admitted to the CTU,” Kattimani said.
