Apr 4, 2015 16:52 IST

    With the assent of union HRD ministry, the path of setting up of the first government engineering college in Arunachal Pradesh has been cleared and soon it is going to be functional in the state. The college will come up at Toru in Papum Pare district, in order to help students getting technical education while being in their home state.

    Under the Rashtriya Uchchatar Shiksha Abhiyan (RUSA) the union government has also plans to upgrade the Dera Natung College and Jawaharlal Nehru College, Pasighat into model degree colleges. The union ministry under the RUSA programme has made it clear to the state government that an engineering college sponsored by the government would come up in the state. This was confirmed by the state Education Minister Tapang Taloh through a released statement. According to him the first installments of the grants has already been earmarked by the ministry and would soon release the state.

    It was demanded by the people of the region for long that the state opens up a fully government funded technical college, so that the bright and meritorious students of the state doesn’t have to migrate to other states to pursue their higher education. This doesn’t become possible for many meritorious students due to financial restrains. Taloh pinned his hopes in this newly announced college and has shown faith that this college might be able to spread technical education to all possible categories of students in the state.

    The foundation stone of the college would be laid by the Chief Minister of the state, Nabam Tuki at Toru on 15 April 2015.
