Hyderabad: Telangana government’s relentless efforts for Tribal University in the State have fructified with the Central government finally preparing a Detailed Project Report (DPR) for setting up the varsity. Though, the Tribal University was sanctioned for Telangana under the AP Reorganization Act, since last seven years there was no considerable progress in setting up the university.
The State government had been taking up the issue with the Centre regularly over the delay in commencing the works. And, all these efforts seem to have paid off with the Centre finally preparing the DPR for commencing the works. This was announced in the Lok Sabha on Monday in reply to a question raised by Nalgona MP N Uttam Kumar Reddy. In reply, The Union Minister for Tribal Affairs, Arjun Munda said, in pursuance of the Andhra Pradesh Reorganization Act 2014, the process of establishment of Central Tribal University in Telangana was started simultaneously with that of Tribal University in Andhra Pradesh but the latter had delayed land allotment. The Tribal University in Andhra Pradesh is already operational.
However, the Union government said the State government had offered the land and the Site Selection Committee from the Ministry of Human Resource Development selected the site at Bhupalpally district. Further, a DPR has been prepared and the inter-Ministerial consultations have also been completed. At present, the proposal has been sent for financial approval from the Department of Expenditure.
