Jammu, Jan 30: A high level team of Union Human Resource Development (HRD) Ministry and University Grants Commission (UGC), which was on a 3-day visit to Jammu and Kashmir, has asked the state government to submit maps and land details of the proposed sites for setting up of two campuses of Central Universities, one each at Jammu and Srinagar.
The eight member team flew back to New Delhi, Saturday evening, after completing survey of the proposed sites. The team is expected to submit a detailed report to the HRD ministry for final decision.
Sources said that the panelist today asked the state higher education department to submit fresh maps and land details of the proposed sites for further action. A high level team from the state higher education department will meet the HRD officials in New Delhi by next week following which a final decision regarding establishment of the university campus will be taken, sources told Greater Kashmir.
They said that the team members conducted an aerial survey of Nandni, one of the proposed sites, and later went by road to Suchetgarh for conducting spot examination of the proposed sites before leaving to Delhi.
Though sources said that the HRD ministry had already given a green signal for two sites for establishment of the varsity campus, formal decision will be taken after the inspection team submits its report.
The 4- member team comprising Sunil Kumar, Joint Secretary HRD ministry, Dr Renu Batra, Joint Secretary UGC, Prof AM Pathan, Vice chancellor Central University Karnataka and state officials had earlier visited Rakhe Tulmulla Kurhama, Rakhe Kujar Duderhama and Rakhe Saloora in Kashmir.
