TU to resume BSc agriculture classes

Chitwan, July 18

Tribhuvan University is all set to resume BSc agriculture classes at Birendra Multiple Campus, Chitwan from this session.

The classes had been halted for the past five years due to infrastructure dispute between Tribhuvan University and Agriculture and Forestry University.

Tribhuvan University had stopped students’ enrolment and agriculture classes at Rampur Campus due to dispute over infrastructure ownership after a new university — Agriculture and Forestry University — was established at Rampur Campus five years ago.

However, after the government’s decision, Tribhuvan University is preparing to resume classes of BSc agriculture from Birendra Multiple Campus, its constituent campus in Bharatpur.

TU Vice-chancellor Prof Tirtha Raj Khaniya said agriculture classes would be run from Birendra Campus until new infrastructure was developed at Shaktikhor. “Necessary instruction has been given to the campus administration to conduct the classes smoothly from this session,” informed VC Khaniya.

As per T U Agriculture Department Dean Keshav Adhikari, they were arranging necessary infrastructure, library, teachers and laboratory to resume classes from this session. “We are preparing to enrol 50 students in agriculture for this session in this campus,” he said.

TU was running agriculture and veterinary classes from bachelors to PhD at then Rampus Campus.
