UNIVERSITY LAND Government of "x" five days back announced that the Government is considering the allocation of land belonged to the Agricultural University, which is found to be surplus at this moment, for developing a Biotechnology Park. The plots will be allotted, on long lease, to the corporate houses with strong R & D and export potential at a concessional rate, for setting up of their biotechnology units. Two days ago, a public forum gave a petition stating that this is against the interest of the student community, as this land is meant for future expansion of the University and should not be given to industrialists and also they seek Government to revert its decision. The opponent political party criticised the Government for allotting the land much below the market price. When announcing about the allocation of University land, Government expressed that the biotechnology units near University campus will facilitate the interaction between the students and the research units and thereby increasing the employability of the students. Further this may contribute positively to the image of University itself. Yesterday, a group of student protesting and involved in dharna kind of activities, demanding the Government to revoke its decision. The police officials informing that the situation needs to be handled properly and they anticipate agitation and violence. The Government machinery is working towards handling the situation and seeks support from public.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
