The Punjab government’s upcoming Educity at New Chandigarh, Mullanpur, would reportedly be “modelled on the UK’s Oxford University”. Detailing, deputy chief minister Sukhbir Singh Badal said the “ultra-modern” Educity with a contingent of schools and colleges for varied streams “will not only provide the best of education but also the environment to fill the innovation gap in the curriculum and requirements of the industry”.
This would also bring the world class education within the reach of overseas education aspirants, he added.
The process of acquiring and developing 1,700 acres of land for the Educity project has already begun. The project so completed would offer education facilities in courses like engineering, medical, management, biotech, tourism, hospital, multimedia and pharmaceuticals. Land may also be allotted to some IT companies.
