More research, more facilities

The Vice Chancellor explained the grants sanctioned to the university from its establishment. Palamuru University was established as a State Govt. University in 2008 with just 1.72 Crores has been developed in a phased manner and today after the bifurcation of the State, now the university is getting Rs.10.91 Crore budget under salary grant. State Govt has sanctioned 12 Crores and 90 lakhs under development grants. Central Govt. has sanctioned 20 Crores under RUSA grants.

With these grants and utilizing university internal resources, the University was able to take up many developmental activities like buildings, infrastructure, student support facilities, sports  facilities etc. Many development activities proposed were hampered due to paucity of funds. However, the grants sanctioned under MERU of  PMUSHA will give a big boost to these activities.

It has come as a big boon to Palamuru University where a major part of this grant (Rs 80 crore approx.) may be used for new constructions, 14 crores for research facilities, 5 crores for renovations and 3 crores for soft component as per the proposals sent to the Central govt. and will be utilized as per guidelines of MERU of PMUSHA.

Vice Chancellor expressed his happiness and said with the blessings of the almighty, and suggestions from university well-wishers, a master plan would be made for the overall development of the university.
