‘No plans for univ, medical college’

india Updated: Jul 07, 2010 00:08 IST

Geeta Bhukkal,
Education Minister,
Government of Haryana

Haryana Government has nothing to offer in terms of professional education colleges in Gurgaon. Why?

It is not true. We have the renowned Management Development Institute (MDI) and other private sector good quality institutions in Gurgaon.

But these are all private initiatives. What has the Haryana government done?

We have promulgated the Private Universities Act allowing big players to set up their universities here. We have a long pending list of applicants, such as Manav Rachna University to name a few, who want to set up their institutions in Gurgaon.

What plans does Haryana have for higher education in Gurgaon?

We have also set up language laboratories in government colleges to train students on soft skills so that they can get jobs in MNCs. We are also going to set up India’s first Defense University in Gurgaon and Central University in neighbouring Narnaul.

Does Haryana have plans to set up a professional university in Gurgaon?

We, as a state government, have no immediate plans to set up a university or medical college here.
