The ongoing shifting process of RSP College from its existing place at Belgaria to Nunudih in Jharia has gained momentum after state coordinator of Rashtriya Uchchtar Shikhas Abhiyan Shambhu Dayal Singh, in a letter, asked the Jharkhand State Building Construction Limited (JSBCL) to appoint an architect for the construction and renovation of new and old buildings respectively.

Under the initiative of Rashtriya Uchchattar Shiksha Abhiyan (RUSA), a holistic scheme of development for higher education in India initiated in 2013 by the Ministry of Human Resource Development, an amount of Rs 2 crore has been approved for the renovation and construction work.


Singh said, “The architect will visit the site at Nunudih where Bharat Coking Coal Limited (BCCL) has issued NOC for the construction of the new building on 13.5 acres of land and prepare the detailed project report for both the buildings.”

“The project report will be submitted before the board of governors of the college after which the funds will be sanctioned to JSBCL,” said Singh.

“An amount of Rs 2 crore was approved for the college development in 2015-16 and the institution had also received a part of it. However, the remaining amount could not be provided as the college had planned to shift in 2017 because of the underground fire threat,” Singh said. The college is operating in a two-storey building of Jharia Rehabilitation and Development Authority at Belgaria.

Jai Naryan Singh, principal of RSP College, said, “We have already launched the counselling centre or the regional office of RSP College at the BCCL building in Nunudih on November 25 last year. Students can get their college leaving certificates and admission forms from the office.”
