Open 20 new colleges in Delhi to avoid unnecessary migration of talented and motivated students to other states of India or abroad, due to an acute shortage of seats

Inadequate Progress

The government is in process of expanding Ambedkar University Delhi (AUD). 200 students have been admitted to four undergraduate courses for the 2016-17 academic session at its new Campus at Karampura and are expected to accommodate over 2,200 students by 2019. Three additional campus centres of AUD are proposed to be opened at Rohini, Dheerpur and Lodhi Road by 2019.

Similarly, the bill to grant University status to Netaji Subhash Institute of Technology (NSIT) has already been passed by Delhi Assembly that increases the number of students from its current 3,500 to 12,000 across its undergraduate, graduate and Ph.D courses. The bill, however, has been returned by the Lieutenant Governor for the reconsideration of Delhi Legislative Assembly. The Assembly has passed it again.

Delhi Technological University is proposing to set up a new campus in East Delhi.

Number of seats in the 12 Delhi University Colleges that are under the administrative control of Delhi Government are proposed to be increased from 6251 to 7742, an increase of 24%.

In addition, the 2017-18 budget documents show that the government has allocated for the construction of a Sports University and East Campus of Guru Gobind Singh Indraprastha University for School of Planning and Architecture. 1 2 3 4 5
