Bhubaneswar: Higher Education Minister Ananta Das, on Saturday informed that the second campus of Rama Devi Women’s University is likely to be set up in Gothapatna on the outskirts of Bhubaneswar.
The Minister, however, said that the final decision will be taken by the committee which have been formed for identification of land led by the vice chancellor of the university.
The Minister further said that he has already inspected the 66-acre land in Gothapatna along with members of the committee.
It is worthwhile to mention here that the state government had initially selected a piece of land in Daspur for the purpose, but dropped the plan after the location was deemed too remote.
Later, the state government decided to establish the second campus of the lone Women’s University of the state on the premises of the Utkal University. However, it withdrew it’s plan after students of Utkal University protested the government’s decision.
