The new university, in effect, will take away colleges and PG centres in Belgaum, Bijapur and Bagalkot districts that were hitherto under the purview of Karnatak University. In all, 296 colleges will come under the new university.
Addressing presspersons here on Thursday, B.R. Ananthan sought Rs.65 crores for the development of the university. MBA course was being offered along with the Institute of Management Education and Research, Belgaum.
Now Belgaum has two universities, VTU and now the RCU. The starting of another university should help boom Belgaum to be a educational hub. The mention of KLE university was done and we regret the same, but KLE university is a Deemed university.
