It seems that this university is not restricting itself to imparting just education to its students. Taking the fact that milk is essential for mental development, the university in Bhopal has decided to rear cows in its campus.

Makhanlal Chaturvedi National University of Journalism And Communication in Bhopal has decided to set up a “Gaushala” (cowshed) on its new campus.

 

It turns out that the gaushala is not for the familiar purpose of taking animal husbandry classes or conducting research but to source quality milk from "Indian-breed cows" and use the dung for growing vegetables for consumption by the inmates and to provide “pure milk to its students and officials”, which will be staying at the hostel.

The university has gone to the extent of issuing a tender on its proposal, inviting private parties to help build the cowshed on their 50-acre campus, construction of which is supposed to end by next year.

Speaking about it to ANI, the university registrar Deepak Sharma said, "(It is) A new experiment. Gaushala will be on around 2 acre of land."

The registrar further went on to add that making a gaushala inside the campus does not need permission from the University Grants Commission.

Sharma had also confirmed the news to India Today saying that two acres of land which were of no use was vexing everyone and it was decided that it would be turned into a gaushala.

Makhanlal University, it seems, just lived up to its name!
