Ara: Veer Kuer Singh University (VKSU) opened its new branch office at Shanti Prasad Jain College, Sasaram, for the welfare and students alike. Union minister of state for HRD Upendra Kushwaha inaugurated the new branch on Friday evening.

VKSU vice-chancellor (VC) Sayyed Mumtazuddin said about two-thirds of the students of VKSU, mostly belonging to Kaimur and Rohtas districts and studying in 10 constituent and 37 affiliated colleges under VKSU, have now been spared the ordeal of travelling to the university headquarters in Ara for study-related official work.

He said students' applications for certificates or other academic documents would be received at the new branch office, which would then forward the same to the university headquarters and added that in course of time, they will try to ensure disposal of such works at the branch office itself.

The VC directed all the principals of colleges under the university to complete the installation of biometric system in their respective colleges at the earliest and also to expedite to get the registration under Naac, if not registered so far. He appealed students to attend their classes regularly and concentrate on their studies and if they had any problem, complain to the university.

SP Jain College principal Gurucharan Singh told this correspondent that he had provided three rooms for the branch office until its new building was built. He added that the college might even spare its staff, if need be, and added that the new branch office would prove a boon for the students of VKSU of Rohtas and Kaimur districts.

On the other hand, students leaders welcomed the VKSU administration's move to start a branch office at Sasaram for the benefit of students and said a long-cherished demand was fulfilled now. They said the students of Kaimur and Rohtas districts will save travelling at least 100km and save money by not visiting the university headquarters for official work.
