New Delhi, September 9, 2018 — India’s Ministry of Development of North Eastern Region has undertaken the task of constructing independent hostels for students from the country’s Northeast in such Universities where the number of these students is reasonably high.

An exclusive hostel for North Eastern students is under construction in the campus of Jawaharlal Nehru University (JNU) in New Delhi. Development of a similar hostel is complete at Bangalore University. Also, a piece of land has been acquired to construct a hostel for Northeast students undergoing studies in the Delhi University.

Dr. Jitendra Singh, Minister of State for Development of North Eastern Region, Personnel & Public Grievances, gave this information while interacting with Prof Raj Kumar, Vice Chancellor of Panjab University, who had come to meet him with a request for setting up of a separate hostel for students from Northeast and Jammu & Kashmir in the premises of Panjab University at Chandigarh. Prof Kumar informed the Minister that there is a considerable number of students from those areas and in the absence of a separate hostel facility they have to look for accommodation outside the University campus.

Dr. Jitendra Singh assured the visiting VC that his ministry would sympathetically examine the feasibility of such a separate hostel in the premises of Panjab University at Chandigarh. He told the VC that he would also check with the Ministry of Human Resource Development its views on this issue and whether it could provide the requisite funding.
