Malegaon: The Aligarh Muslim University (AMU) experts a week after they toured Maharashtra for inspecting the lands for the proposed AMU sub centre in the state, found the lands identified in Malegaon as unsuitable and opted for Khuldabad as a better choice.


"The Aligarh Muslim University has informed the Government of Maharashtra that Khuldabad site situated in Sulibhanjan comprising 332 acres of land is best suitable to establish the AMU centre", a press statement released by the AMU on November 04 said.

"AMU Vice Chancellor, Prof. P.K. Abdul Azis in a letter addressed to Shri Mahesh Pathak, Secretary, Higher and technical Education, Government of Maharashtra said that the power and water availability to the proposed land and the convenience of transferability to AMU as being owned by the Government of Maharashtra besides the logistic facilities were important among other considerations in the selection of Khuldabad site", it added.

The statement further said, "Prof. Azis has urged the state Government to give the entire 332 acres of land with addition of 10 acres of land lying adjacent to the social forestry region."


He also asked for protected water be provided by the state Government along with a 33 KV electricity sub-station at the proposed site and the site be connected by a 30 meter wide road from the national highway within three month besides ensuring that the land be encumbrances-free and contiguous, measured, fenced up by the government and to be transferred in favour of the Registrar of AMU Aligarh and all the land record handed over to on the day of land transfer.

Prof. Azis also requested to handover the land within a shortest possible time preferably within one month so that the University can prepare a Detailed Project Report (DPR) and Detailed Feasibility Report (DFR) for submission to the Government of India and seek the permission of the President of India in her capacity as the Visitor of the University as was done in the case of Murshidabad and Malappuram Centre.

The decision came after the six-member AMU team led by Prof PK Abdul Azis visited Maharashtra on October 26, 2011 and inspected the lands in Khuldabad and Malegaon identified for the purpose.


While the land proposal from Malegaon had officially been sent to the AMU VC for his approval by the Department of Higher & Technical Education, Govt. of Maharashtra, request for the land inspection in Khuldabad was sent by Minister of State for Primary Education Mrs. Fauzia Khan.


Meanwhile, the AMU decision has generated shock waves in Malegaon where efforts to get the centre established in the region were on for the last three years. One of the most backward areas in Maharashtra and the only town in the state with more than 75% Muslim population, Malegaon thought establishment of the AMU centre here would compensate for the losses and negligence of the last sixty years.
