Pvt varsities in state can lease land to expand their campuses

  • | Tuesday | 5th December, 2023

Gurgaon: The state government will now allow private universities to lease land from private players or institutions for expansion. The move has come as relief for private universities facing shortage of space due to skyrocketing prices of land. Private varsities have been demanding a change in the rules on leasing privately owned land for some time now.With this move, already established private universities will also be able to expand their campuses by leasing plots from private players in the state.At present, private universities are being run on their own land or on land leased out from the government. Apart from 10 state universities, there are 24 private universities in Haryana.The Haryana Private Universities Act of 2006 had framed a set of regulations to encourage investment in education, wherein it would buy plots from private players to lease to private universities for opening up new campuses or expanding the existing premises. They would also acquire agricultural land. Now, the private universities will be able to do so without government mediation.We had been urging the government to provide relaxations in the rules for some time now. It is becoming increasingly difficult for us to expand given how the rates of properties have been increasing. We could not directly buy more plots, especially in the vicinity. If the government doesnt have a plot around us, we need to buy the plot for expansion, which is not affordable. Hence, the option to lease is going to help in not only improving the quality of infrastructure but also introducing more courses and improving the quality of education, said a member of private universities body in the state.We also published the following articles recentlyChennais Shenoy Nagar park to be maintained by private firmThiru Vi Ka Park in Shenoy Nagar will be maintained by Quess Corp Limited for a contract valued at Rs 4.59 crore.
