On the faculty shortage in the UoR, the Minister said the state government would extend its all support and contribution if vacancies were filled up.

With the upcoming universities in Bharatpur, Alwar and Dholpur, the load factor on UoR would be minimised as most of the affiliated colleges would be taken care by the new varsities, he said.

He announced that Rs 10 lakh per year would be given to the University of Rajasthan from his MLA fund for five years.

Thirty-three meritorious students were given away gold medals jointly by Union Minister of State for Water Resource S L Jat, Rajasthan Ministers K C Saraf, Arun Chaturvedi and Rajpal Singh Shekhawat.

One of the meritorious students, Anil Kumar Singhal, received four gold medals in four degrees pending since 1999-2001. Speaking on the occasion, Jat categorically stressed that degrees and gold medals should be given on time to the students as it encourages them.

A number of other speakers including Rajasthan Ministers Chaturvedi, Shekhawat, acting Vice-Chancellor Hanuman Singh Bhati said that UoR should get the status of Central University as it qualified all norms and standards not only in education, but also in research.
