AMU Vice Chancellor welcomes Central Government’s grant for off-campus centres

Aligarh: The Aligarh Muslim University Vice Chancellor, Professor Tariq Mansoor has welcomed the move by Ministry of Minority Affairs, Government of India to sanction a grant of Rs 100 crores and 99 lakhs for the construction of boys’ and girls’ hostels at the University’s off-campus centres in Malappuram (Kerala) and Murshiddabad (West Bengal).

Professor Mansoor said that the AMU off-campus centres in Kerala, West Bengal and Bihar have been facing a severe financial crisis, which prevented the University from constructing hostels in these centres.
