Consultant inspects site for AMU study centre at Kishanganj

A private consultancy hired by the Aligarh Muslim University (AMU) today inspected the site of its proposed study centre in Bihar's Kishanganj district as part of preparations of the Detailed Project Report (DPR) in this regard, according to the expert consultant Kunal Mathur.

A five-member team of the private consultant - M/S India Ltd - inspected the site in order to prepare the DPR for the AMU's study centre there, Mathur told reporters.

The consultancy would complete the DPR in a month and hand it over to the AMU authorities for approval, Mathur said, adding that the construction of study centre campus in the first phase would cost Rs 400 crore while the total cost of overall infrastructure would be about Rs 2,500 crore.

The state government had last year purchased 222.4 acres of land in Kishanganj district and handed over the plot to the AMU authorities to set up infrastructure for higher education facilities.

The UPA government had late last year approved the AMU study centre project at Kishanganj consequent to which an official delegation of Aligarh-based premier central

university had visited the site and expressed their willingness to start the campus at the earliest from rented accommodation.
