Today Shri SS Ahluwalia, Hon'ble Member of Parliament, Shri Roshan Giri, GTA Executive Member for Education and GTA Secretary, Shri Don Bosco Lepcha, IAS met Shri Rajnath Singh, Hon'ble Minister of Home Affairs and Smt Smriti Irani Hon'ble Minister of Human Resource Development and presented the final Detailed Project Report (DPR) for establishing a Central University in GTA area as mentioned in the GTA agreement.

The GTA engaged EdCil, a consultancy group under the auspices of MHRD, Govt. of India for preparation of a Detailed Project Report (DPR) for a Central University in Darjeeling. The experts from EdCil conducted on-site studies and came up with a DPR with meticulous care. They are of the view that a Central University in GTA is both necessary and viable. The said group has also tentatively selected the site for the proposed university.

Both the Hon'ble Ministers have given a positive assurances regarding the setting up a Central University and we are confident that the Government will take immediate steps towards introduction of a Bill in Parliament for establishment of the Central University of Darjeeling.

Establishment of a Central University is a long standing demand of the people of Darjeeling. Although Darjeeling hills began as a Centre of European education in early nineteenth century, the situation of higher education in the region has become rather dismal in last few decades with access to educational opportunities, which is considered to be one of the basic human rights, highly inadequate. In fact, the history of Darjeeling has always been a history of deprivation and negligence.

Central University in Darjeeling Hills will not only fulfill our long term demand, but will also fulfill the educational dreams of our students, play a pivotal role in the economic, cultural and intellectual development of the entire region and above all, will play positive role in connecting the entire community with the national mainstream.
