University of Hyderabad

We, the teachers at the University of Hyderabad, strongly oppose all moves by the university administration to alienate and gift away more than 1,000 acres out of the 2,324 acres of land that were granted to the university by the Andhra Pradesh government in 1974.

First the university administration allotted 200 acres to CARE Foundation, a corporate medical organisation. Later the administration tried to set up a so-called Knowledge and Innovation Park by allotting another 200 acres of the university land to corporate firms for their R&D activity. The university community fought a successful battle against these allotments to private companies and got them cancelled.
