The first regional centre of
Rajiv Gandhi Pradyogikik Vishwavidhyalaya will come into operation in Jabalpur
from September 15, Thursday. Technical Education Minister Shri Laxmikant Sharma
will inaugurate the centre. It may be mentioned that Technical Education
Minister Shri Laxmikant Sharma had announced in Vidhan Sabha on July 22 that
five regional centres of Rajiv Gandhi Pradyogikik Vishwavidhyalaya would be
opened at Indore, Jabalpur, Gwalior, Sagar and Rewa with a view to expanding
engineering education and avoiding difficulties of students in reaching Bhopal.
There has ben an extensive expansion of technical education in the State during
the term of the existing government. Before 7-8 years, Rajiv Gandhi Pradyogikik
Vishwavidhyalaya used to manage examinations, results and other arrangements for
around 20 engineering colleges. Now, there are over 200 colleges following the
expansion of engineering and polytechnic education in the state and RGPV has to
control and manage all these colleges. It was very challenging task for the
University to control around 2.5 lakh student from Bhopal itself. As a result of
this, the students faced many problems. They have to come to Bhopal to procure
degree, mark-sheet, documents and solve other problems. Keeping the interest of
students in mind, five regional centres are being opened in the State.
With the opening of regional centre at Jabalpur, around 35 thousand students of
around 35 engineering, pharmacy and MCA colleges will avail the benefits. All
the works related to University will be dealt with at regional centre itself.
