10 years after, Tumkur varsity yet to get land

Bangalore, July 31, 2013, DHNS:

Tumkur University which was established in 2004 is yet to get a spacious campus. Identifying land for the university has been going on for a decade but the efforts have not fructified.

Explaining how the government has failed to allocate land for the varsity, B Suresh Gowda (BJP) asked Higher Education Minister R V Deshpande in the Legislative Assembly on Wednesday as to when the land would be sanctioned.

Speaker Kagodu Thimmappa, after listening to Gowda and the minister, expressed his displeasure over the manner in which the government starts universities without allotting land.

Deshpande said that he too was not happy that the university has not been allotted land.

Clearance awaited

Earlier, Gowda said that the university was started a decade ago when G Parameshwara was the Higher Education minister.

The university and the government had identified land at three locations but nothing was finalised as the forest land was involved.

Finally, around 200 acres was identified, some 10 kms from Tumkur city. Clearance is awaited from the Centre as  social forestry land is involved and the forest department has to get land as compensation.

Deshpande said the Centre’s clearance was awaited and assured the member the land would be allotted on priority.
