AMU commences Admission at Malappuram, Murshidabad

Plans by Aligarh Muslim University for starting two professional courses as a first step to the establishment of full - fledged centres (in effect, regional campuses) in Kerala and West Bengal are likely to fructify this academic year.

Admissions to the LLB and MBA courses in the regional centres that have been established in the districts of Malappuram and Murshidabad will begin soon. Each course will have an intake of 60 students.

"Our plans to start the regional centres are at a decisive stage, and, as the government of India expects us to start admissions for this academic year, I am optimistic about being able to do so," said P.K. Abdul Azis, the Vice - Chancellor of AMU.

"Both these districts are educationally backward. The State governments responded enthusiastically to our proposal and have given us the land free of cost," he said.

Kerala has allotted 272 acres in Perinthalmanna taluk of Malappuram, and West Bengal 250 acres in the Farakka Barrage region of Murshidabad.

The Ministry of Human Resource Development has released Rs. 25 crore and Rs. 10 crore for the West Bengal and Kerala centres respectively to meet preliminary costs, Professor Azis said. "We will start undergraduate classes from next year. We envision these as modern, state - of - the - art campuses in the years to come."

The new regional centres - in addition to Kerala and West Bengal, such centres will be set up in Pune, Bhopal and Kishanganj in Bihar - are being established under Section 12 (2) of the AMU Act (1981).

Admission to the regional centres will follow the AMU reservation pattern of 50 per cent internal (candidates who apply from AMU - run schools and colleges) and 50 per cent external. Candidates can then opt for a regional centre.

"The regional centres are meant for the educational enhancement of the region and I believe that as we expand we should respond to local needs. For example, we should start a women's college and also a women's polytechnic in such centres, and give some weightage in our admissions policy for local aspirants," said Professor Azis.
