THIRUVANANTHAPURAM: The hostel for students at Women’s College would be set up on the college campus, said Minister V S Sivakumar, who is also the local MLA.
The decision regarding the same was taken during a meeting held on Thursday in the presence of Education Minister P K Abdu Rabb.
The construction of the students hostel has been delayed following non-availability of land for the same.
As per the earlier architectural drawing, the necessary land was not available within the campus.
Following this, though an attempt was made to find land in another location that too didn’t work out.
However, as per the new decision, a new architectural drawing would be prepared and based on which a five-storied building would be constructed within the campus.
Administrative sanction of Rs 3.26 crore has been given for the project.
Of this Rs 1 crore will be given as UGC grant while the remaining would be provided as budgetary support.
Apart from Minister V S Sivakumar, Kerala University Vice-Chancellor P K Radhakrishnan, Collegiate Director M Nandakumar, Registrar K Mohammed Basheer, Collegiate additional director Girijadevi, Women’s College principal V P Krishna Prabha, Works department Deputy chief engineer Sreekantan Nair, executive engineer R Gopidasan and assistant executive engineer Manomohan were also present at the meeting.
