VAJAYAWADA: A world-class medical university is expected to come up at Amaravati, the new state capital in the making on Krishna river bank. Amrita University, which has been recognised as the best research university in the country, will set up its campus in the new capital.

Amrita University was started by the world-renowned humanitarian leader Mata Amritanandamayi Devi, fondly called as Amma. As chancellor of the university, Amma continues to guide the university’s mission and growth.

Representatives of Amrita University called on Chief Minister N Chandrababu Naidu at his office here on Friday and submitted a proposal for setting up the university campus with an investment of Rs 2,500 crore. The representatives said that they came up with the proposal after a request from the chief minister to this effect.

Amrita University has five campuses in three southern states of India. A superspeciality hospital with a bed strength of 2,250 will come up on the campus. A Research and Health Care campus too would come up as part of the medical university project, a press release  said.

The delegation from the Amrita University comprised university pro vice-chancellor Brahmachari Abhaya Mitra Chaitanya, Amrita Institute of Medical Sciences director Dr Prem Nair, Ammaji Labs Director Bhavani Bijlani and Amrita International representative Polisetty Srinivas.
