The Maharashtra government proposed lands in three places-Malegaon, Aurangabad and Khuldabad- for the AMU campus. Recently, an AMU team led by Vice Chancellor PK Abdul Azis inspected the all three sites.

AMU Vice Chancellor, Prof. P.K. Abdul Azis in a letter addressed to Shri Mahesh Pathak, Secretary, Higher and technical Education, Government of Maharashtra said that the power and water availability to the proposed land and the convenience of transferability to AMU as being owned by the Government of Maharashtra besides the logistic facilities were important among other considerations in the selection of Khuldabad site.

He appealed that the land should be encumbrances-free and contiguous, measured, fenced up by the government and to be transferred in favour of the Registrar of AMU Aligarh and all the land record handed over to on the day of land transfer.

Prof. Azis also requested to handover the land within a shortest possible time preferably within one month so that the University can prepare a Detailed Project Report (DPR) and Detailed Feasibility Report (DFR) for submission to the Government of India and seek the permission of Hon’ble President of India in her capacity as the Visitor of the University as was done in the case of Murshidabad and Malappuram Centre.

Prof. Azis has urged the state Government to give the entire 332 acres of land with addition of 10 acres of land lying adjacent to the social forestry region. He also asked for protected water should be provided by the state Government along with a 33 KV electricity sub-station at the proposed site and the site should be connected by a 30 meter wide road from the national highway within three month.
