Mhow: The Babasaheb Ambedkar National Institute of Social Sciences (BANISS) here will be rechristened, expanded to accommodate more students and given the status of a university.

The institute, currently a deemed university, will soon become Babasaheb Ambedkar University of Social Sciences and Technology, and enjoy status of a full-fledged varsity, BANISS officials said.

Infrastructure will be upgraded in such a manner that 1,000 research students could be accommodated in its hostels, Tribal Welfare minister Vijay Shah.

For this, 200 acres of land will be given by the State Government and additional budget will be allocated for putting in place necessary infrastructure, he said yesterday.

Shah was speaking at a national workshop on "Socio- economic development of small and marginal farmers" at BANISS.

The minister later presided over the 47th Management Committee meeting of the institute.

Shah, being the head of the committee, approved the BANISS Academic Council's decision to reorganise the institute into a university, they added.
