Prof. Azis said that the quest of AMU to expand education in the country through AMU Special Centres has received further flip as the Government of Bihar has finally agreed to provide the required land for setting up the special centre of Aligarh Muslim University.

Earlier the Bihar government offered 100 acres of land but based on the representation made by the AMU Vice Chancellor the Government of Bihar has decided to provide 250 acres of land.

According to Prof. N. A. K. Durrani, Media Advisor to the V-C, in a letter addressed to the Vice Chancellor, the Principal Secretary of the Department of Human Resource Development Anjani Kumar Singh has informed that “the Government of Bihar has now decided to give 250 acres of land, free of cost to AMU for opening its Centre in the Kishanganj district” and requested the University for early opening of the Centre in the state.

The news of land allotment to AMU in Bihar was received with jubilation among the University community.

Prof. P. K. Abdul Azis has expressed confidence that the University will move forward in the direction of establishing special centres in Murshidabad, Malappuram and now in Kishanganj. A team of University officials will be visiting the Kishanganj site very soon and submit an action plan to accelerate the process and to bring it on fast track.

Prof. Azis explained that the present initiative is a powerful projection of an ambitious plan to expand the AMU’s academic and research programmes to meet the challenging needs of the marginalized and excluded social class.
