UGC Sanctioned Rs 15 Cr To BU

The University Grants Commission has sanctioned Rs. 15.31 crore to Bharathiar University under the XI Five Year Plan, Vice-Chancellor G. Thiruvasagam told a press conference here on Friday. “Bharathiar University is the only one other than the University of Madras to get a grant to this level. The latter got Rs. 1 crore. This was because we had met most of the parameters for the sanctioning of the grant,” the Vice-Chancellor said.


The university had met the parameters in terms of number of departments, number of students, number of courses and manpower (teacher strength). Mr. Thiruvasagam said 97 per cent of teacher vacancies had been filled. This was very high compared to other universities. In terms of research, infrastructure and extension activities too the university had excelled and those had been recognised.



The grant had been divided into many areas of distribution. They include, setting up of a day-care centre for the children of teaching and non-teaching staff, an internal quality assurance cell and an Equal Opportunity Cell, developing adventure sports, facilities for persons with disabilities, construction of hostels, swimming pool, appointment of teachers for new departments, etc.
