The other AP NLU: 43.5 sq ft per student & no hostels as DSNLU Vizag faces Rs 40 cr crunch

The Damodaram Sanjivayya National Law University (DSNLU) Vizag in Vishakhapatnam is Rs 40 crore behind on the minimum funds required to set up its own campus. It is currently operating from a 20,000 square feet rented building for its 460 students, who are housed in private hostels across Vizag without any transport facilities, reported the Times of India last week.

These are the third rented premises from which the university is operating but unless it manages to get its infrastructure in place it will not receive central funding.

The authorities have requested the state government to release Rs 20 crore by the end of this academic year, however out of the Rs 10 crore sanctioned to it last year the state had released only Rs 5 crore.
