Government of Maharashtra has sanctioned Gondwana University which will be set in Gadchiroli. It is a big move. It is formed to reduce load on Nagpur University and is the second bifurcation of the university.
Nagpur University (NU) will fill new posts at Gonwana University (GU) by transferring employees from its own department and rest to be recruited. Students enrolling for the academic year 2012-2013 will be issued certificates from GU while the existing ones will receive certificate from Nagpur University.
