Vice-Chancellor Messages

Prof. Dr. Jai Rup Singh, Vice Chancellor. Already in top-gear, the Central University of Punjab is making earnest efforts to initiate its first academic session from this very year. Having overcome the initial herculean hurdles of finding a suitable place to make a beginning, the University is all set for making its presence felt in the Malwa region of Punjab. This university would, in a very short time, become the beacon of higher education in Punjab. In this student-friendly university, the emphasis would be on quality education and on hands-on practical training. The best research facilities in the region would be created here. This is evident from the meticulously planned details for the City Campus of the university which has materialized in the heart of Bathinda in an area spread over 35 acres. The university has spent 30 million rupees on the renovation this site which is almost ready to move in.

The City Campus of the university would have the latest facilities including campus-wide wireless internet connectivity support by optical fiber backbone. Twenty-four hour power supply would be ensured at the campus through standby generators. Provisions have also been made to extend research facilities to the faculty as soon as they join.

Keeping in view the needs of the region and the country, eight Schools have been short-listed for being established at the university. Each school would have 4 to 8 Centres (Departments) providing instructions in the latest fields of study in their respective areas. We propose to introduce cross-disciplinary programmes in tune with the latest trends the world over. Most of the courses would be of integrated nature and there would be possibilities of switching over from one course to another. Study of one course in science would be compulsory for those opting for humanities/social sciences and similarly one course of humanities/social sciences would be compulsory for those joining the science/technology stream.

The university would be following semester system with 100% internal evaluation and continuous assessment. The university would be following grade point system. A credit transfer mechanism with the other university would be introduced for the benefit of the students. The students would be able to see their evaluated answer sheets and they would also be participating in the teacher assessment programs.

The university aims at offering liberal scholarships to the students. All the students joining M.Phil./Ph.D. programs would be given fellowships. The fees for the various courses would be very nominal.

The main campus of the university would come up near Bathinda. It would be spread over an area of 500 acres. The construction activity at the main campus would start very soon. The digital survey of the land and also the detailed geographical estimates about soil bearing capacity and water resources is in process. This Campus would be built on the concept of Green Campus and all the buildings would be adhering to this concept. The designing of the main campus would be done by the best architects to be selected through global tenders.

Joining the Central University of Punjab offers a unique opportunity to the students to become a part of the history by being the first batch of students. For faculty, it is an opportunity to fulfill their academic dreams and become partners in building up an institution form the very beginning.


The objectives of Central University of Punjab, as defined by 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 make special provisions for integrated courses in humanities, social sciences, science and technology in its educational programmes; to take appropriate measures for promoting innovations in teaching-learning process and inter-disciplinary studies and research; to educate and train manpower for the development of the country; to establish linkages with industries for the promotion of science and technology; and to pay special attention to the improvement of the social and economic conditions and welfare of the people, their intellectual, academic and cultural development.


MAIN CAMPUS : In the lap of nature, away from the city pollution and traffic noises, over 500 acres of land have been acquired by the Govt. of Punjab for the Central University of Punjab. Surrounded by lush green fields around this area, the University's site has some fruit gardens within it, provides an excellent landscape with different contours and varied levels which would be a type of landscape which the architects love to have to develop a conceptual design of a world class university.

Located on the Bathinda-Badal road this Campus of the university is ready for development. The land is being transferred to the university. The process to have the electronic topographical survey of the land has been initiated and immediately thereafter the whole site would be secured by a boundary wall. The architectural designs are going to be finalized through global competitions. The construction of the main university building at the site is going to be initiated this year itself.

The University is going to be developed as an environment friendly green university with its designs having maximum utilization of the sun energy conservation of the existing traditional trees and extensive plantations of the shady trees, shrubs, flowers, etc.

CAMP OFFICE : The University is presently working from a Camp Office located at Civil Station near the centre of the city for the convenience of the public and for proper coordination with the civil authorities. The Camp Office would soon be moving to Transit Campus of the university. This Campus, spread over an area of 35 acres is on the Bathinda - Delhi highway - just 5 Kms from the main bus stand of Bathinda.

CITY CAMPUS : Spread over an area of 35 acres , this Campus of the university provides an ideal, secure, peaceful, pollution free and ambient setting for academic pursuits. Located just 5 Kms from the heart of the city, this Campus has a separate administrative block and would soon be having its independent water supply, and 24 hour electricity supply. The academic block is being furnished to house excellent science laboratories, seminar halls, library, computer labs, faculty rooms, research laboratories and all other infrastructures. The residential area for the faculty and staff is also located within the well protected walled campus. Its open grounds are under development for sports of the students. From this Campus, the university would be running its academic and other programs and imparting training to the students till its main campus, spread over an area of over 500 acres is ready to move in.
