Rampur administration proposes to bring Azam Khan’s Jauhar University under State Government control

A large number of farmers had filed cases against Azam Khan accusing him of grabbing their land for the university.

The Rampur Administration had proposed that UP government should take over the control of Rampur based Mohammad Ali Jauhar University after it was reported that the half of the land University is grabbing belongs to the State Government. The Vice-Chancellor of the University Azam khan is lodged in Sitapur jail along with family.

The University was established as a university in 2006 and registered under section 2(F) of the University Grants Act, 1956. Jauhar University is located in Rampur city of Uttar Pradesh.

As per the Additional District Magistrate, a nine-member committee produced a report that states that out of 78 hectares, 36 hectare land of Jauhar University is owned by the state. The report asserts that more than 88 Crore in the total 163 Crore used to run the university was sanctioned as part of state funds.
