lot of lands belongs to RGU has been compromised due to encroachment made by some individuals for their personal gain.


The committee constituted to demarcate the land donated for establishment of Rajiv Gandhi University during 1985, on Wednesday claimed several anomalies in the recently constructed boundary wall of the University. Breach of Government notification and tampering of the old map is also alleged.

AAPSU Vice President (Protocol) Dr Tayuk Sonam who represented the apex students’ body today said, “It is confirmed that a lot of lands has been compromised due to encroachment made by some individuals for their personal gain. The actual land donors who are here today as the committee members have made it even more clear that the boundary wall construction is also in an unpredictable situation. AAPSU will press for reclaiming every inch of RGU’s land for this cannot be sidelined. A prominent institute like RGU will need more space in the future too, to establish more departments and develop human resource; AAPSU will never compromise on this”.

The assessment of the actual land measurement was carried out under the supervision of Doimukh Sub Divisional Officer Ibom Tao, staffs from Land Management department Papumpare, Land donors Nabam Darmo, Techi Gombu and Tana Tabo.
