Establishment of Affiliating University (GGSIP UNIVERSITY)
(Proposed Outlay Rs. 19850.00 lacs for 11th Five Year Plan 2007-12)
(Rs. 5650.00 lacs for Annual Plan 2007-08).

In 1997 Delhi had four Universities viz. The Delhi University, Jawaharlal Nehru University, Jamia Millia Islamia University and Indira Gandhi Open University. All of them are the Central Universities. Delhi University, the only affiliating University, however had reached the point of saturation and was not in a position to either open a college on its own or affiliate colleges opened by either the Government of Delhi or byprivate Organization. In this scenario, under increasing pressure from the student community as well as the public at large for provision of facilities of higher education, particularly in the field of professional education the Delhi Government was left with no alternative but to establish a University in Delhi in order to promote general, professional and technical education. In any case, the population of Delhi has grown more than three times since establishment of Delhi University and therefore setting up another university was a necessary long over due. The Guru Gobind Singh Indraprastha University was established by the Govt. of NCT of Delhi in the year 1998 by an Act of Legislature.

The other important consideration was that due to resource constraints and other considerations, it was high time that private institution be promoted and encouraged in field of higher education to share the burden of the Government. Such participation and involvement of the private sector has been in existence in the field of school education for decades. Only the field of higher education was left untouched by this phenomenon. It was, therefore, felt that the Government must encourage this trend as long as the prime motive behind opening such institutions is not the profit making. In other words, these institutions be funded by endowments and fees. An essential requirement for affiliating these institutions was the establishment of a university which has now come into being in the form of Guru Govind Singh Indreprastha Vishwavidyalya.
The University, in fulfillment of its role of affiliation & promotion of private participation in the field of higher education, affiliated 48 self financing institutions and eight Govt. managed institutions with the University in the diverse areas of Engg/ Technology, management, computer applications, mass communications, B.Ed. Physiotherapy, Homeopaty, Heritage and conservation management & LLD (Hons.) This included Mahila Institute of Technology, the first institution conducting Engg. Programme exclusively for women, & five privately managed Engineering Colleges.
    Eighty five percent of seats in the institution located in NCT of Delhi were reserved for Delhi students thereby providing much needed opportunities to the students of Delhi and relief to parents, as the students were no longer required to go to far flung States like Karnataka, Andhra Pradesh, Maharashtra & Tamil Nadu for admission in professional programmes. A total intake capacity of about 5000 seats in different disciplines was created.
  The University, in its role of acting as a nucleus for dissemination of knowledge and act as a facilitator, introduced following new programmes of studies in its campus.

The University has introduced with effect form academic session 2001-2002, five year integrated law programme leading to LLB (Hons.) degree which will, in addition to providing quality legal education, also inculcate in the prospective lawyers a spirit of service to the nation and society.

 Delhi Cabinet has already decided that Guru Gobind Singh Indraprastha University will have two campuses one in Trans-Yamuna and the other in West Delhi. 50.54 acres of the land in Dwarka in West Delhi and about 19.11 acres of land in Suraj Mal Vihar in Trans-Yamuna area have already been made available to the University for these campuses. An architectural competition has also been completed for the Master Planning & designing of the new campus at Dwarka in West Delhi. For construction of its West and East campuses at Dwarka and Suraj Mal Vihar, the University has prepared a memorandum for EFC at an estimated cost of Rs. 142.56 crore. The EFC has approved Rs. 264 Lakhs and Rs. 164 Lakhs for Dwarka and Surajmal Vihar Campous respectivelly in the first instance for Construction of boundary wall, soil testing, earth felling and plantation of campouses. The University Grants Commission has recognized the Guru Gobind Singh Indraprastha University and has declared it eligible for receiving Central assistance in terms of Rules under Section 12-B of the U.G.C. Act, 1956. Earlier the University had already been included in the list of Universities maintained by the Commission under Section 2(f) of the U.G.C. Act. The University has also received the grant of Rs. 30 lakhs from UGC during 2001-02. During the year 2002-03, provision of funds is required for consolidation of School of Studies already set up for meeting expenditure on salaries and other related liabilities of the faculty and other staff already appointed or likely to be appointed, procurement of Machinery, equipment and tools for laboratories/workshop, raw material and consumables essential for running teaching programme and other day to day office and other expenses. Under the capital works funds will be required to meet the expenditure on development of the land, construction of boundary wall/barbed wire fencing (if necessary) and construction of University buildings and payment of Architect fee etc. An outlay of Rs. 12340.00 lacs has been approved for 10th Five Year Plan 2002-07 and Rs. 1350.00 lacs for Annual Plan 2002-03.
   SETTING UP OF CORPUS FUND OF GURU GOBIND SINGH INDRAPRASTHA UNIVERSITY (Rs. 675.00 lacs for 10th Plan) (Rs. 325.00 lacs for Annual Plan 2002-03) Objectives :- As per the National Education Policy of the Govt. of India and the recent emphasis on reduction of subsidies in the Higher Education, it has become essential that the University should become financially self reliant to the possible extent in phases. The objective of the scheme is thus to make the Guru Gobind Singh Indraprastha University self financing to meet the recurring expenditure in a period of 5 years.


Methodology proposed to be adopted The University as a part of its day-to-day functioning earns or likely to earn revenue from the following sources :-

Income from Tuition fees.

Income from fees other than Tuition fee

Income from sale of forms for affiliation

Processing fee for affiliation

Affiliation fee for new institutes/fee for continuation of affiliation

Sale of application forms/examination fees for entrance test.

Sale of recruitment forms for staff recruited.

Other miscellaneous receipts such as sale of tender forms, publication fee.


Resources raised in due course of time through research, patent rights, R & D publication, Royalty consultancy services, projects endowment funds, contributions from alumni and resident Indian professional/ executive development programmes etc.

The University is making expenditure or likely to make expenditure on the following subheads:-

Non-recurring :

Land & building and its maintenance.

Procurement of equipment, machinery and tools for laboratories and workshops.

Procurement of office equipments.

  Procurement of office and lab furniture.

Procurement of books, technical journals/magazines.

Recurring :

Salary of Teaching and non-teaching staff

Other expenses which includes:

Procurement of raw Material and Consumables for the laboratories and workshop, maintenance of equipments.

Other expenses which includes:

Telephone charges, p.o.i.

Payment of professional services

Advertisement, rent and taxes

Scholarship & Stipend

Examination charges

Postage and stationary

Other miscellaneous expenses

The Proposed Methodology will be as follows :-


The entire income of the University (other than income from Tuition fees) after deducting the expenses acquiring under that component will be retained by the University. The income from tuition fee will be deposited with the Government or adjusted against the grant received.


The income so retained will be used to create a Development Corpus Fund of the University's at the beginning of the financial year 2000-2001.


Govt. of Delhi has released a matching grant of Rs. 325 Lakhs upto the year 2001-02, which will be added to the corpus fund. The amount so provided will be deposited and invested for a period of 5 years so as to mature in the year upto in a period of full years.


Likewise in the coming years, the University's income on the above said components will be retained and Govt. of Delhi will double the amount by releasing matching grant. This amount will also be invested so as to mature in the year2005.

The principal amount as well as the interest will not be utilized till the year 2005.


The interest of the compounded amount in the year 2005-2006 onwards will be utilized to meet the shortfall, if any, in the recurring expenditure of the University for the year 2005-2006.


The net income of the University for the year 2005-2006 onwards will be utilized to meet the shortfall, if any, in the recurring expenses demand and the remaining will be added to development corpus fund.


Following are the other important features of the schemes:-


The Govt. of Delhi will continue to provide full grant to meet the recurring as well as non-recurring expenditure for the first five year i.e. up to 2004-2005, in addition to the matching grant required to be provided for Development Corpus Fund, every year.


After five years, i.e. from 2005-2006 onwards, the Govt. of Delhi will only meet the demand of non-recurring expenditure of the university, i.e, for building, purchase of equipment, books, office furniture and equipments.

The matching grant will be equivalent to the University's net income.


The University will make efforts to increase the net income every year.


The projections are based on present level of teaching activities in the University Teaching Department and anticipated level of receipts. The deficit, if any shall have to be met by the Govt.


If the University decides to introduce any new teaching department in the light of changing technological scenario, it will submit detailed project report for additional requirement of funds to the Govt.


The proposal does not take into account the leave encashment, gratuity and pensionery liability of the university employees. The Govt. may either consider meeting these liabilities along with other grant for Rs. 10 crore in the University the interest of which shall be utilized to meet such liabilities as and when required.


The implementation of the scheme shall be reviewed after two years in consultation with Finance Department of Govt. of NCT of Delhi and corrective measures be proposed.

The Department thus proposes as follows :-

The Net income, excluding Tuition Fee, may be deposited as Development Corpus Fund.

The Govt. of Delhi may also contribute, in addition to the normal grants in the year 2000-2001 in this corpus fund. Projections for the next years are anticipated as below:
