S. Indumati, Vice-Chancellor, Davangere University, has said that the university is thinking of revamping the course structure from the next academic year and introduce new subjects that suit the needs of the districts that come under the university.

She was speaking to presspersons after inaugurating an induction process for the five subjects being introduced by the Chitradurga Post Graduate Centre at SRS College here on Monday.

The university has no fund shortage as the Government had been releasing the required amount of funds.

“To start a full-fledged centre, we will be first focussing on constructing the required number of classrooms, hostels and rooms for administrative works. We want to start the course at the new university building at G.R. Halli village by the next academic year,” she said.

She said that land had been registered under the name of Governor who is the chancellor of the universities in the State.
