Infrastructure at Regional Centre
Updated on 05 Sep, 2019


INFRASTRUCTURE AT THE REGIONAL CENTRES
The RCs are mostly located in hired buildings. The university has constantly emphasized the need for RCs to function from their own premises. In this direction some RCs are now operating from own buildings, few have acquired land for the RC building and some are in the process of obtaining land for the purpose. The list of RCs operating from their own buildings is provided in the Table below:
