Aligarh: The Aligarh Muslim University move to establish a state-of-art AMU Centre at Malappuram has received a big push. The Kerala government has acquired a total of 392 acres of land for setting up the AMU Centre and decided to organize the official land transfer ceremony. The Government of Kerala will be handing over 218 acres of land at a function to be held at Thiruvananthapuram on December 28, 2010.

The Kerala government has already transferred 122 acres of land to AMU in a public function in March 2010 thus making the Malappuram campus a sprawling 340 acres.

The Chief Minister of Kerala V. S. Achutanand will be present at the land transfer ceremony and the leader of opposition in Kerala Assembly, Omen Chandi, the Minister of Higher Education, M. A. Baby, Revenue Minister Rajan, Finance Minister Thomas and other prominent dignitaries will attend the land hand-over function. AMU Vice Chancellor Prof. P. K.

Driven by the dynamic drive of Prof. P. K. Abdul Azis, the AMU Malappuram Centre project is considered as a vital segment of the dream project to increase equitable access to quality education and capacity building in youths, particularly of minorities and marginalized social segments. The project aims at minority education, women’s education, technical education, vocational education, medical, nursing, management, law etc. ingraining in its all entirety the dimension of world-class standard equipped with advanced digital and green field technology.

A major priority of the project is to set in motion the national development goals of the Government of India through the inclusive growth by reducing educational deficit. The partnership with the state government and the overwhelming support the AMU is receiving from the Government of Kerala. The State government has provided free land. It is creating all facilities and building, supplying infrastructure and has provided temporary accommodation to make the Centre functional.

The University appointed consultant EdCIL has already submitted a Detailed Project Report and in about eight years’ period the Centre will become fully functional with 11285 students and an annual recurring expenditure of Rs. 10585 Lakhs.
