The North Eastern Council has launched Rs 11 crore for the development of a hostel for northeastern scholars in Jawaharlal Nehru University (JNU) campus. The tendering via the Central Public Works Department (CPWD) is under procedure.


The details were mentioned via the officers of the Ministry of Development of North Eastern Region (DoNER) and North Eastern Council (NEC) in a evaluate assembly held on June 3, 2019.

The four-storey hostel could have 224 rooms to deal with scholars. Out of the 224 rooms, 24 can be reserved for college students with disabilities. “This hostel is funded via the North East Council under the Ministry of Development of North Eastern Region to create 440 further residing areas around the campus in all hostels for college students coming from North East India. These 440 residing areas around the campus can be given to those scholars on precedence,” says M Jagadesh Kumar, vice chancellor of JNU.


“In our university, we don't place the scholars within the hostels region-wise. In JNU, we have scholars from across India and out of the country, they be informed and live in combination to make our campus highly cosmopolitan,” he adds.


The construction work will start within the coming weeks and is anticipated to finish via 2021. This will be offering more residential house for college students within the educational session 2021-22. “We have gained all the required permissions for the development of the hostel. Such big construction tasks most often take a long time and we expect it to be practical in about 18 months,” adds Kumar.


Highlighting the expanding call for for hostels because of additions within the listing of lessons presented via JNU, Kumar says, “Since we are expanding our educational programmes, the call for for more hostel accommodation will continue to be on a upward thrust. We are working on elevating price range for the development of more accommodation, which can permit more scholars to live on campus.”
