The construction work of the postgraduate building of Nilamber Pitamber University began on November 2, 2016. For this purpose, a 25-acre chunk of vacant land on GLA campus has been carved. Currently, the postgraduate department of the university is being operated through a temporary campus at a rental cost of Rs. 43,000 per month.
Sardar Circle Officer, Sheo Kumar Pandey mentioned that out of 25 acres of land, 24-acre of land is in three patches consisting eight acres each on the campus. The remaining one-acre land consists of two concrete constructions of GLA College. He clarified that the 25 acres of land do not have any encroachment by public. He further added that a notice would be displayed on the college notice board, allowing everyone to file objections in this regard.
Ameet Kumar, an official of GLA College, has been supervising the issue of land for NP University. He mentioned that he is receiving a regular update on the land. He further stated that GLA College has been spread over 80 to 85 acres of land. However, the converted land of the college is only 35 to 37 acres. Land revenue officials indicated that a mutated land, whose lagaan is accepted could be termed as rightful and law possession of the owner/holder of the land.
Pandey explained that around 40 to 42 acres of GLA College land hasn't been mutated since years. He further added that there is no one to explain how such a prime plot of land measuring 40 to 42 acres remained so. He assured that he would raise the issue with the higher authorities.
