PG Centre in Kadur lacks facilities

A view of the PG Centre of Kuvempu University in Kadur.

The Kuvempu University PG Centre in Kadur is devoid of facilities, thus inconveniencing the student community. 

The PG Centre was opened in a building near Kadur PU College in 2007. Later, an administrative block was constructed on 60 acres of land at Gedlehalli in 2012. The PG courses are offered at the administrative block. 

The campus faces a shortage of water. There are two hostels in the campus with 230 students pursuing their higher education, of which 160 students are staying in hostels. The water is supplied from a borewell to the hostel.

The students feel that water from the Bhadra project should be supplied to the PG Centre campus as well. As the water from the borewell is also used for watering the plants in the campus, the campus faces a shortage of water. 

Students said that a separate science block needs to be constructed along with a library. 

The PG centre needs Shuddha drinking water unit, BCM and SC/ST hostels as well. The PG centre offers PG courses in Chemistry, English, Medicinal Chemistry and Commerce. The centre has four permanent lecturers and five non-teaching staff and 23 other outsource staff, said centre director Prof Mahadevan. 

MLA Belliprakash has raised the issue of the lack of facilities haunting the PG Centre in Kadur during the Belagavi session. The Higher Education Minister has promised to visit the spot.
