    Municipal Administration Minister P. Narayana along with AP-CRDA Commissioner Ch. Sridhar visited the campus sites of VIT University and SRM University which are under construction at Inavolu and Neerukonda respectively in the capital region of Amaravati.

    Speaking on the occasion, Mr. Narayana said the works are going on at a fast pace and classes would begin from coming academic year — from July 19 at VIT and SRM from August 7.

    He said that apart from these universities, the government is trying to bring in international institutions to the capital before 2018 in order to make Amaravati an economic growth engine of the State.

    He said that both the universities have started the admission process. “VIT is going to have 660 graduation, 120 postgraduation and 50 Ph.D. seats. It is going to invest ₹ 1200 crore by 2022 to build the campus in an area of 60 lakh sqft to accommodate 12,000 students. SRM is going to come up in 10 lakh sqft area at a cost of ₹ 3,000 crore. This year SRM is going to have 240 students”

    SRM University pro vice-chancellor Prof. D. Narayana Rao said that they aim to make four satellites, Jal Janak Rail and set up the Blue Economic Centre in the campus in next two years.
