Mohali, December 3: The Punjab Cabinet chaired by Punjab CM Amarinder Singh has given a nod to establish Amity University Campus in the city's IT hub through a video conference.

The self-financed private "Amity University Punjab", is being established as a high research and innovation-driven university on a 40-acre state-of-the-art campus, which would be developed at a prime location in Mohali, SAS Nagar, with an investment of Rs 664.32 crore over 5 years. It would be located 10-minutes away from Chandigarh-Mohali airport.

With the first session set to commence from June-July 2021, the University would become functional.

It would have annual intake of 1,500-2,000 students. However, the Punjab Government has urged to reserve 15 per cent of students from Punjab, 5 per cent of the total number of students would be given free education as part of the ordinance, and its terms and conditions. It would be a multi-disciplinary University, with various departments like Engineering Computer-IT, Communication, Commerce, Management, Psychology, Liberal Arts, English Literature etc.
