Visakhapatnam: Union Minister of State for
Human Resource Development (HRD) D Purandeswari today said the
Centre would set up a world-class university in Visakhapatam
in about a year.

"It is still being discussed how a world-class university
should be. So, there is some delay. I cannot give an exact
time-frame. But, may be in a year, a world-class university
would definitely be set up in Visakhapatnam," she told
reporters.

The Centre had announced in 2008 that 14 world-class
universities would be set up in the country. Pune, Kolkata,
Coimbatore, Mysore, Bhopal, Gandhinagar and Guwahati are among
the cities where the world-class universities are proposed to
be established.
