TIRUPATI: The state cabinet has given its approval for alienation of a 5.5-acres of government land in Venkatachalam near Nellore to the Central Institute of Indian Languages for constructing a permanent building for the Centre of Excellence for Studies in Classical Telugu, free of cost.

Minister Kakani Govardhan sought the cabinet nod to allot the land to the Central Institute of Indian Languages free of cost, saying that it will carry out activities like research, documentation, propagation and teaching of Classical Telugu.

The cabinet meeting chaired by chief minister Jaganmohan Reddy on Friday amended its previous resolution passed in the favour of the Central Institute that had asked it to pay the market price for the allotted 5.5-acre land at the rate of Rs 25 lakhs per acre.

The centre functioning under the Union HRD Ministry and based in Mysore was shifted to Nellore based on a plea from Vice President Venkaiah Naidu during his visit to Mysore in 2019.
