BANGALORE: The state government on Friday handed over three acres of land to the National School of Drama (NSD) to construct its campus in Bangalore. The NSD campus, the first outside Delhi will come up in the premises of Kalagrama which is spread over 20 acres at Mallathahalli near Jnanabharathi campus.

Commissioner of Kannada and Culture, Manu Baligar and NSD Director Anuradha Kapoor signed the MoU in the presence of Kannada and Culture Minister Govind Karjol in Bangalore.

The school which has been functioning out of the Gurunanak Bhavan in the city will shift to the Kalagrama campus in about three years. Speaking on the occasion, Kapoor said that she was happy with state government’s decision to hand over the land.

“This is a great leap for us- a move forward in higher education in theatre,”  she said adding that there was a demand from states like West Bengal, Maharashtra, Goa and Jammu & Kashmir to set up NSD centres.
