Ramanagara will host RGUHS, State tells HC

In an affidavit filed before the Division Bench comprising Chief Justice J S Khehar and Justice A S Pachhapure, the State government submitted that there will be no change in location of the varsity.

The Deputy Secretary, State Medical Education Department has submitted that Rs 52 crore has already been released for the land acquisition for the construction of varsity campus at Archekarahalli, where the university is coming up.

The affidavit said that the work has begun already and contract was awarded to Nagarjuna Construction Company.

The Bench disposing of the matter observed: “In view of the amount released by the government and the project having started, this petition becomes infructuous and is disposed of,” the Bench said.

The petitioners, Nalani Navaneesh and four others, residents of Sugganahalli near Ramanagara had moved the High Court over the delay in shifting the campus.

The petitioners submitted that the State government had earlier in 2007 decided to set up the university at Archakanahalli in Ramanagara and reserved 30 acres.

Mentioning that notifications to acquire 200 acres of land were issued and Principal Secretary Medical Education had approved setting up of the institute along with 250-bedded super speciality hospital, they submitted that the State had failed to give effect to the project.

The petitioners have sought directions to release funds for the varsity, which has been allocated on February 22, 2007.
