He added that for the current year budget of public participation fund was Rs 1.5 crore and out of this up to 40 per cent funds could be allocated for college buildings’ renovation, which means that approximately Rs 60 lakh could be contributed from public participation fund if the same amount is contributed by Jan Bhagidari Samitis.

Currently, work for renovation of Mhow Government College building is underway for which both sides had contributed Rs 15 lakh each.
