AMU Announces Its Choice Of Land For Its Center In Maharashtra State
The Aligarh Muslim University has informed the Government of Maharashtra that Khuldabad site situated in Sulibhanjan comprising 332 acres of land is best suitable to establish the AMU centre.
AMU Vice Chancellor, Prof. P.K. Abdul Azis in a letter addressed to Shri Mahesh Pathak, Secretary, Higher and technical Education, Government of Maharashtra said that the power and water availability to the proposed land and the convenience of transferability to AMU as being owned by the Government of Maharashtra besides the logistic facilities were important among other considerations in the selection of Khuldabad site.
Prof. Azis has urged the state Government to give the entire 332 acres of land with addition of 10 acres of land lying adjacent to the social forestry region. He also asked for protected water be provided by the state Government along with a 33 KV electricity sub-station at the proposed site and the site be connected by a 30 meter wide road from the national highway within three month besides ensuring that the land be encumbrances-free and contiguous, measured, fenced up by the government and to be transferred in favour of the Registrar of AMU Aligarh and all the land record handed over to on the day of land transfer.
Prof. Azis also requested to handover the land within a shortest possible time preferably within one month so that the University can prepare a Detailed Project Report (DPR) and Detailed Feasibility Report (DFR) for submission to the Government of India and seek the permission of Hon’ble President of India in her capacity as the Visitor of the University as was done in the case of Murshidabad and Malappuram Centre.
Prof. Azis in another letter expressed gratitude to Professor (Mrs.) Fauzia Khan, Minister of State for Primary Education, Minority Affairs and Aukaf, Government of Maharashtra for the hospitality and care extended to the AMU team that recently visited Aurangabad/Malegaon for the inspection of the offered lands. Prof. Azis said that the AMU is making all efforts to bring the extremely backward Muslim community in the realm of modern education. He said that the Muslim community needs a concerted effort for their uplift and Muslim leaders should work social and economic promotion of these people.
