RGUHS sets the ball rolling for shifting campus to Ramanagaram

The shifting of the campus of the Rajiv Gandhi University of Health Science from Benglauru to Ramanagaram began on Sunday.

At a function in Ramanagaram organised to mark the beginning of the shifting process, Energy Minister D K Shivakumar, who is also the Ramanagaram district incharge minister, said the university would come up at Archakarahalli on 216 acres of land.

“There are legal issues regarding 78 acres of land and construction will not be taken up there till the legal hurdles are cleared. The government will construct the campus and health city on the remaining 148 acres,” he said.

Rs 800 crore deposits
“Some people are misleading the public by claiming that the RGUHS lacks funds. The varsity has deposits of Rs 800 crore and tax will have to be paid for the deposit if the funds are not utilised. Moreover, Rs 580 crore will be spent for the construction of the campus,” he said.

Medical Education Minister Dr Sharan Prakash Patil said the government would release Rs 100 crore every year for the running of the university.
