The North-Eastern Hill University (NEHU) Library, which started with a collection of 600 books in 1973, is now a premier university library of the North-Eastern Region of India with a collection of over 2.3 lakh volumes of books and bound periodicals supplemented by the enormous information resources now available through the UGC-INFONET Consortium and the links to global information resources and services provided on its webpage.

The NEHU Central Library is now equipped with high-end computers and other electronic and audio-visual equipment to provide seamless in-house and online services. Following the University Grants Commission s selection of North-Eastern Hill University as a 'University with Potential for Excellence', the NEHU Library has launched a major effort to provide the best services through internal reorganisation, optimisation of available resources, launching of innovative services, and by taking the initiative to reach out to the user community through various programmes. The NEHU Central Library at Shillong and the NEHU Campus Library at Tura cater to the needs of the students, research scholars, faculty, administrators and staff of the university. The library building, funded by DoNER, was inaugurated on 20th September, 2006 by Shri P. R. Kyndiah, Hon ble Union Minister of Tribal Affairs & DoNER, Govt. of India in the presence of Prof. P. Tandon, Vice Chancellor, NEHU, Shillong.

Guest Houses
The University has three Guest Houses, viz. at Shillong, Guwahati Airport & Tura Campus. The management of NEHU Guest House at the Headquarter has yet again shouldered by the University from 1.5.07. The affairs of the Guest House is monitored by a duly constituted Guest House Management Committee which is under the Chairmanship of Prof. D. R. Syiemlieh and 4 (four) other regular members; viz. Prof. Ramesh Sharma, Prof. N. Saha, Dr. Lucy T. Zehol & Shri H.O. Jana (Asstt. Registrar, Estate) as Convenor. With the extension of the Guest House, to-day there are 32 guest rooms of which 6 AC rooms are in the Annexe as VIP cluster exclusively for high profile dignitaries visiting the University from time to time. The University is capable of accommodating more than 50 delegates at a time. The University proudly notes that many dignitaries including the Chancellor of the University and four Vice Chancellors of different Universities have stayed in the Guest House other than the dignitaries of the University Court, Academic Council, and Executive Council & Selection Committees during the preceding financial year. The Guest House had also hosted a number of banquets and parties apart from outdoor catering for meetings.

During the period under report, different academic departments of the University had organized as many as 25 National and International level Seminars, besides Orientation Courses as well as Refresher Courses conducted by the UGC-Academic Staff College. NEHU Guest House at Shillong has been the venue for most of these Seminars in view of its multiple advantages, such as accommodation, catering and the convenience of having a Mini Conference Room and an Auditorium with a sitting capacity of 40 and 130 delegates respectively. The Guest House had accommodated foreign delegates from France, Germany, Bhutan & Bangladesh, who have visited the University.

The NEHU Guest House at Shillong presently functions with 9 staff besides an Administrative Assistant to oversee the overall functioning of the Guest House. The Security and cleanliness of the Guest House is on contract with private agencies for better service output. During the financial year 2007-08, the Guest House at Shillong had been able to make itself self-sustaining and improvement in the infrastructure from its own resources for providing better facilities and comfort to the guests of the University.

The Guest House at Guwahati Airport was made functional by the University in February, 2006 with 6 rooms. Now, there are 9 AC rooms, 2 non AC rooms and a mini AC Conference Room for 18 delegates. The Guest House is self-sustained. Primarily, the Guest House caters to the need of NEHU officials who pass through Guwahati, being the corridor between other parts of the country. The Guest House also caters to the need and extends common conferencing facilities not only to all other Central Universities of North-East, but also to the Govt. of Meghalaya, Nagaland & Arunachal Pradesh besides RIIMS, AMC, DRL. Also, the Guest House caters to the needs of the air passengers in the wake of cancellation of flights on request by the Airport Authority of India. During the period under report, a number of foreign guests were also provided accommodation in the Guest House. The management of the Guest House is taken care by Shri Michael George, Section Officer posted at the Airport. The Guest House at Tura Campus functions from a hired building and it is capable of accommodating 12 guests at a time. It has 3 AC Guest rooms, 1 room with Cooler and 1 non AC room. As the University is having an MBA program in the Campus, the Guest faculties from abroad are provided accommodation in the Guest House.

About University
North-Eastern Hill University was set up by an Act of Parliament and notified on 19th July 1973. The objectives of the University, as laid down in the act, are "to disseminate and advance knowledge by providing instructional and research facilities in such branches of learning as it may deem fit; to pay special attention to the improvement of the social and economic conditions and welfare of the people of the hill areas of the North-eastern region, and in particular, the intellectual, academic and cultural advancement".

The jurisdiction of the University extended originally to the states of Meghalaya and Nagaland and the erstwhile Union Territories of Arunachal Pradesh and Mizoram. With the establishment of the Nagaland University on 6th September 1994, the jurisdiction of NEHU ceased over Nagaland. Likewise with the establishment of the Mizoram University the jurisdiction of NEHU over Mizoram also ceased from June, 2001. Arunachal Pradesh has its own university.

In spite of serious constraints of communication and the general lack of infrastructure facilities in the region, NEHU has established itself as an institution of higher learning and research of very high quality. It has been able to attract persons of proven academic excellence from almost all parts of the country to serve in its faculty; and its student community is drawn not only from the different parts of North-East but also from other parts of the country. In February 1996, the University set up a campus at Tura with the Departments of English, Garo and Education. Very recently a Department of Rural Development and Agricultural Production has been added to the existing three departments at Tura. A number of departments of the University now receive special grants from University Grants Commission under its Special Assistance Programme. Four of the Science departments including Geography also receive grants under the UGC's SAP/COSIST Programme. The Departments of Science and Technology has extended financial help to five of our science departments including Geography as part of its scheme for funding infrastructure development in higher academic institution. Some of the departments have also received grants under the UGC's Departmental Research Support Scheme. In addition, a huge number of research projects have been awarded to individual members of faculty notably by the CSIR, DST, DAE, UGC, ICSSR, Ford Foundation and DBT, DF & E, and MoEF. The University is also the recipient of a number endowments donated by various organisations and individuals including by Dr. Shankar Dayal Sharma, former President of India and Justice Krishna Aier. NEHU was also chosen for the prestigious Rajiv Gandhi Chair for research into protective discrimination. Several individual members of the faculty have been honoured with the highest academic awards in the country. Many of our teachers are also involved in collaborative research projects with Universities of Europe and Asia. One of the basic ways in which the University endeavours to fulfil its "local" responsibilities, as enshrined in its Act is by focussing its attention on the North-East in its curricular programme including research. The fulfilment of its "global" responsibilities, as a member of the global academic community, is evident from the number of research publications by its teachers in journals of high international repute and the national and international seminars and conferences which are a regular feature of the University's academic life.

At present there are fifty-three undergraduate colleges affiliated to the University including eight professional colleges. The University Central Library whose membership includes university and college teachers, postgraduate and undergraduate honours students and members of the non- teaching staff has a collection of close to 2,00,000 books, 38,000 bound periodicals and it subscribes to 316 foreign and 366 Indian current journals.

Our students have done well in life after leaving the University. Many have been taken into the Central Civil Services, Banking Services and into the University System. Several have been awarded scholarships and fellowships by both national and foreign organisations. The percentage of our students clearing the NET, GATE and other national tests is quite high. The number of students turning for their Master's degrees and research students working for their M.Phil. and Ph.D. degrees is close to 1700. The undergraduate colleges affiliated to the University enrol about 18,000 students. Our faculty strength is just over 300.

In a short span of about 30 years NEHU has matured into an institution with a serious academic and social and cultural agenda and a clear vision for its future growth.

Introduction
North Eastern Hill University (NEHU), a Central University, caters to the needs of north eastern states of India. Headquartered in Shillong, the territorial jurisdiction of the University is spread over the entire state of Meghalaya. The University's main objective is to cater to the Tribals of the state and it reserves about 50% of the seats are for the state tribals. Apart form the main campus at Shillong, NEHU has opened another at Tura housing the Departments of English, Garo and Education. Recently a Department of Rural Development and Agricultural Production has been added to the existing three departments at Tura.

North Eastern Hill University (NEHU)was established by an Act of parliament on 26th May 1973 with its head quarter at Shillong covering north east states and Union Territories. NEHU has 28 departments with 4 centers of studies under its 6 schools. Currently there are 65 under graduate colleges affiliated under this university with 8 professional courses.

History
Established in the year 1973, North Eastern Hill University (NEHU) was set up by an Act of Parliament. The prime objective of NEHU is to disseminate and advance knowledge by providing instructional and research facilities in various branches of learning.

North-Eastern Hill University was set up by an Act of Parliament and notified on 19th July 1973. The objectives of the University, as laid down in the act, are "to disseminate and advance knowledge by providing instructional and research facilities in such branches of learning as it may deem fit; to pay special attention to the improvement of the social and economic conditions and welfare of the people of the hill areas of the North-eastern region, and in particular, the intellectual, academic and cultural advancement".

The jurisdiction of the University extended originally to the states of Meghalaya and Nagaland and the erstwhile Union Territories of Arunachal Pradesh and Mizoram. With the establishment of the Nagaland University on 6th September 1994, the jurisdiction of NEHU ceased over Nagaland. Likewise with the establishment of the Mizoram University the jurisdiction of NEHU over Mizoram also ceased from June, 2001. Arunachal Pradesh has its own university. However the North-Eastern Regional Institute of Science and Technology located in Arunachal Pradesh is affiliated to NEHU.

Initially, the academic departments and administration of the University at Shillong functioned from hired buildings. Very soon, however, NEHU acquired two prime properties in the city, one belonging to the former Maharaja of Mayurbhanj and the other to the Rani of Bijni. The academic departments then moved to these two sites. Meanwhile, the Government of Meghalaya acquired, for the University, a substantial plot of land (measuring about 1225 acres) in Umshing, a little outside the city limits, for setting up its permanent campus. This picturesque land, gently undulating and thickly wooded - a perfect location for the University - was a gift from the Government of Meghalaya. The survey of the land and the master plan for the University were completed during the VI Five Year Plan; and construction activities began in a modest way during the VII Plan period. By the year 1991, with the completion of the construction of several residential quarters for the faculty, hostels for men and women, a ring road, a modern workshop for the University Scientific Instruction Centre, a building for the Regional Sophisticated Instrumentation Centre, and Guest House-cum-Seminar Complex, a complex of buildings for the science departments and with our own electricity and water supply system in place, the campus took the visible shape of an attractive University in the making.

In 2005, following the shifting of the departments to the Permanent Campus at Umshing, Mayurbhanj Compex at Nongthymmai was disposed off to the Government of Meghalaya. At the moment, barring a few Centres located at Bijni Compex, almost all departments of the University are housed in the buildings on the permanent campus. We now have Internet connectivity through our own VSAT to which all the departments located on the campus are linked. Efforts are on to enhance the range of our Internet connectivity. The telecommunication department has set up a fully automated telephone exchange on the campus. This is first of its kind in any University in the region. Much of the developmental work on the campus in the past couple of years or so has been made possible by the generous grant that the University has received from the Government of India from its "non-lapsable pool".
Back to Top

It is hoped that in about another couple of years or so, the University would have developed sufficient infrastructure facilities for all its Centres (presently located at Bijni Complex) to move into permanent locations in the campus. The University has also allowed, with the permission of the Government of Meghalaya, the Department of Tourism to set up an Institute of Hotel Management, Indira Gandhi National University and the Indian Council of Social Science Research to set up their regional centres on its land. The Sports Authority of India has also been given permission to create modern sporting facilities in the University. Thus, in the very near future, the campus will grow into a suitably diverse, but coherent, University Township. It has also the potential of being a University of striking scenic beauty.

In spite of serious constraints of communication and the general lack of infrastructure facilities in the region, NEHU has established itself as an institution of higher learning and research of very high quality. It has been able to attract persons of proven academic excellence from almost all parts of the country to serve in its faculty; and its student community is drawn not only from the different parts of North-East but also from other parts of the country.

Presently, the department enjoys the faculty strength of 7 regular teachers (against the sanctioned strength of eight) in addition to some visiting faculties who are at times invited to supplement the regular teaching and interaction. Despite the teething problem in the early years, the department has grown into a full-fledged department with resources both faculty and facilities for specialization in Accounting and finance and Management of Small Enterprises. Presently there are two regular programmes, Masters and Doctoral, run in the department along with some other need based short run informal programmes like NET coaching and career counseling. The department is equipped with a Computer Lab and a Learning Resource Center. The department along with the regular programmes conducts industrial tours for the students, refresher courses for the college and university teachers and some need based training programmes. Conferences/seminars/workshops at national and regional levels are also organized by the department on a regular basis.

Media coverage of North Eastern Hill University (NEHU), Shillong Meghalaya, Meghalaya

All India protests after Hazare locked up

New Delhi As soon as word spread that Gandhian Anna Hazare was arrested by police, hours before he was to sit on his anti-graft fast in Delhi, protests erupted all over India, with people spilling onto streets, raising slogans, observing bandhs.

Scores of Delhi University students today protested outside the Chhatrasal Stadium where Anna Hazare and his supporters are understood to have been kept after they were arrested.
The protesters also blocked the road leading to the stadium and shouted slogans against Delhi police and the UPA government.
Chhatrasal Stadium in Model Town in North Delhi has already been converted into a Special Jail, where Team Anna members are believed to have been lodged.

Meghalaya
Shillong: Teachers and students of the premier North Eastern Hill University (NEHU) today staged a demonstration condemning the arrest of Anna Hazare and his team in Delhi, saying it was an infringement of ones right to freedom of expression and freedom to peaceful protest.

The NEHU community -- the students, teachers and non-teaching employees -- held a meeting today in connection with the general awareness about JanLokpak Bill, senior teacher S B Prasad said.
Students displayed placards against corruption and expressed anguish at the detention of Anna Hazare.
A resolution adopted at the meeting conveyed solidarity with Team Anna in their crusade against corruption.
We also express our deep anguish at the way in which freedom of expression and freedom to peaceful protest has been trampled by the authorities of the state. We pledge to bring corruption to an end, the resolution signed by a number of teachers and students said.


NEHU students want tribal VC by October 8

Raju Das
SHILLONG, Oct 5 – Students of the North Eastern Hill University (NEHU) today rejected the appointment of AN Rai as the new Vice Chancellor and instead demanded a tribal VC for the University by October 8.

Rai, an eminent scientist and currently the VC of Mizoram University, was appointed to the post by the Union Human Resource Development through a notification on Monday. He was appointed in place of embattled NEHU VC, Pramod Tandon, whose ouster is being demanded by the students and staff of the University for sometimes now.

The Meghalaya Tribal Students Coordination Committee (MTSCC), a conglomerate of Khasi, Garo and other student bodies of the University decided in a meeting today that they would not accept the appointment of Rai and demanded that a tribal must be chosen for the post.

We want the Central Government to appoint a tribal VC for the University, MTSCC chairman, Kynpham Kharlyngdoh said after the meeting. The students have set October 8 as the deadline to accede to their demand.

Rai was a professor at NEHU before his appointment as the VC of Mizoram University. The University students here have, however, claimed that Rai was thrown out by the Mizoram University and was therefore being put here in NEHU.

The Central University has been in the news lately for the wrong reasons. Tandon whose tenure expired on September 9 and was hoping for an extension received a rude shock after his office was locked by faculty and staff of theUniversity recently.

The faculty and staff fighting for Tandons removal under the banner of Joint Action Committee has alleged that Tandon was involved in irregularities while running theUniversity.

There is a growing demand within the University to appoint senior professor of History department and a local, David R Syiemlieh as new VC. The University had in late Barrister Pakem as the only local VC since the Universitys inception in 1973.

PTI adds: Alleging that Rai is a tainted man, the general assembly of the teaching and non-teaching staff unilaterally appointed the senior most professor of NEHU R P Bajpai as the VC.

The assembly is shocked by the appointment of a tainted man in the prestigious NEHU and opined that it is not a dumping ground for adjusting discredited Rai as the new VC of NEHU, chairman of the Joint Action Committee (JAC) of the teaching and non-teaching staff S B Prasad said.

Rai had earned a bad name after a turmoil at Mizoram University few months back over a recruitment row, he said.

Meghalaya Tribal Students Coordination Committee also refused to accept Rai as the vice-chancellor. We will continue to protest unless a local professor is appointed, the students body said.

Former vice-chancellor Pramod Tandon, whose term had expired on September 12 but was asked to continue, today relinquished his post officially. – PTI

Rare lotus species facing extinction in Meghalaya

SHILLONG, July 20 – A rare species of Indias national flower lotus, not found anywhere else in the world, but at a small pond near Smit in Meghalaya is facing extinction in the absence of government intervention.

Nymphaea Tertragonolobes, the rare and delicate lotus specie is found only in a small pond owned by a private individual at Smit some 10 kms from the State capital and nowhere else in the world.

There are just four to five of these rare plants in the pond and these may disappear forever unless the government take steps, North Eastern Hill University (NEHU) Vice Chancellor and a renowned botanist Pramod Tandon informed.

A team of research scholars from NEHUs Botany department first stumbled upon this rare Lotus variety during their study in 1985.

During those years about 15 to 20 plants would bloom each summer. However, with every passing year the size of the pond has reduced due to neglect and encroachment squeezing this rare plants habitat.

An individual has bought the area and is trying to save this rare specie, but if the government does not intervene in its conservation it is unlikely to survive for long, Tandon observed.

Although botanists did try to culture the plant in the laboratory but it did not yield satisfactory results. Nymphaea Tertragonolobes is very delicate and is susceptible to diseases and so the experiment to culture it in the laboratory was not successful, the Vice Chancellor said.

The only alternative is for the government to intervene and save this flower by increasing its habitat and the Forest department must carry out research work to save such endangered plant species, Tandon stated.

Tandon said he was aware that the North Eastern Council sometimes back sanctioned funds to the Forest department to set up a plant tissue culture laboratory. I dont know if the lab was ever set up, he added.

Meanwhile, NEHU has successfully micro-propagated (to propagate plants through modern plant tissue culture) two endangered plant species the Nepenthes Khasiana the carnivorous Pitcher plant found in Meghalaya and Mantesia Wengeri the State flower of Mizoram with 100 per cent success, Tandon added.
