To provide to the students residing in Delhi an opportunity for Higher Education.
NEED AND JUSTIFICATION OF THE SCHEME
The number of colleges in Delhi is less and all the students who want to take higher studies are not getting admission because very few seats are available in the existing colleges. As such, it became necessary to open new colleges to cater the need for higher education. At present, there are 28 Delhi Government sponsored colleges, 16 of which are being funded by UGC and Delhi Government on sharing basis and the remaining 12 colleges are being funded by Delhi Government on 100% basis. The entire expenditure of following 12 colleges is being borne by Delhi Government: -
Indira Gandhi Institute of Physical Education and Sports Sciences, Vikas Puri.
Sukhdev College of Business Studies, Jhilmil Colony.
Rajguru College of Applied Sciences for Women, Jhilmil Colony.
Deen Dayal Upadyaya College, Karampura..
B.R. Ambedkar College, Main Wazirabad Road, Yamuna Vihar
This scheme envisages the opening of new degree colleges and to run the existing colleges and to acquire land and to construct building. Since the University of Delhi was not very enthusiastic of opening of new colleges and also was not very willing to allow such colleges to be opened either by the Government of NCT of Delhi or private agencies, the Govt. of NCTD had no alternative but to establish its own University. Hence, an affiliating and teaching University, namely, GGS IP University was established for affiliating the colleges/institutions to be opened by Govt. of NCTD and private agencies.

3. ESTABLISHMENT OF AFFILIATING UNIVERSITY(GGSIP UNIVERSITY (Approved outlay for 10th Plan 2002-2007, Rs.12340 Lakhs.) (Outlay for Annual Plan-2005-2065 Rs.1504 Lakhs)
In 1997 Delhi had four Universities viz. The Delhi University, Jawaharlal Nehru University, Jamia Millia Islamia University and Indira Gandhi Open University. All of them are the Central Universities. Delhi University, the only affiliating University, however had reached the point of saturation and was not in a position to either open a college on its own or affiliate colleges opened by either the Government of Delhi to private organization. In this scenario, under increasing pressure from the student community as well as the public at large for provision of facilities of higher education, particularly in the field of professional education the Delhi Government was left with no alternative but to establish a University in Delhi in order to promote general, professional and technical education. In any case, the population of Delhi has grown more than three times since establishment of Delhi University and therefore setting up another university was a necessary long over due. The Guru Gobind Singh Indraprastha University established by the Govt. of NCT of Delhi in the year 1998 by an Act of Legislature.
The other important consideration was that due to resource constraints and other considerations, it was high time that private initiative be promoted and encouraged in field of higher education share the burden of the Government. Such participation and involvement of the private sector has been in existence in the field of school education for decades. Only the field of higher education was left untouched by this phenomenon. It was, therefore, felt that the Government must encourage this trend as long as the prime motive behind opening such institutions is not the profit making. In other words, these institutions funded by endowments and fees. An essential requirement for affiliating these institutions was the establishment of a university which has no come into being in the form of Indraprastha Vishwavidyalaya.
The University, in fulfillment of its role of affiliation & promotion of private participation in the field of higher education, affiliated 68 self financing institutions and nine Govt. managed institutions with the University in the diverse areas of Engg/Technology, management, computer applications, mass communications, B.Ed. Physiotherapy, Homeopathy, Heritage and conservation management & LLD (Hons.) This included Mahila Institute of Technology, the first institution conducting Engg. Programme exclusively for women, & five privately managed Engineering Colleges.
Eighty five percent of seats in the institution located in NCT of Delhi were reserved for Delhi students, thereby providing much needed opportunities to the students of Delhi and relief to parents, as the students were no longer required to go to far flung States like Karnataka, Andhra Pradesh, Maharashtra & Tamil Nadu for admission in professional programmes. A total intake capacity of about 9000 seats in different disciplines was created.
The University, in its role of acting as a nucleus for dissemination of knowledge and act as a facilitator, introduced following new programmes of studies in its campus.

Delhi Cabinet has already decided that Guru Gobind Singh Indraprastha University will have two campuses one in Trans-Yamuna and the other in West Delhi 50-54 acroes of the land in Dwarka in West Delhi and about 19.11 acres of land in Suraj Mal Vihar in Trans-Yamuna area have already been made available to the University for these campuses. An architectural competition has also been completed for the Master Planning & designing of the new campus at Dwarka in West Delhi. For construction of its West and East campuses at Dwarka and Suraj Mal Vihar, the University has prepared a memorandum for SFC at an estimated cost of Rs.105 crore which is under submission for approval.
Under the capital works funds will be required to meet the expenditure on development of the land, construction of boundary wall/barbed wire fencing (if necessary), construction of University building and payment of Architect fee etc. An outlays of Rs. 1504 Lakhs is approved for this scheme in Annual Plan 2005-06 which includes Rs. 1294 Lakhs under capital head.

6. GIA FOR CONSTRUCTRION OF HOSTEL FOR COLLEGE GOING GIRL STUDENTS IN DELHI (Approved outlay for10thplan 2002-07 Rs.500 lakhs outlay for annual plan2005-06 Rs. 80 lakhs)
In the last 30 years or so, the number of women colleges in Delhi has gone up from five to seventeen, not including the college of nursing and the college of applied sciences. Correspondingly the number of college going girls have also gone up from 8000 to around more than one lakh which includes those enrolled in evening classes as well.
The five prominent girls colleges namely Miranda House, Lady Shri Ram College, I.P. College, Lady Irwin College and Daulat Ram College all have hostel facilities. With the increase in enrollment, these facilities proved to be totally inadequate. The demand for hostel in these five colleges has been increased manifolds i.e at least 5 to 6 times against the available existing hostel facilities . In the other girls colleges, no hostel facility is provided, leaving the bulk of the out-of-town girl students to make their own residential arrangements.
In order to cater to the demand for accommodation for out-of-town girls, landlords and property dealers near the campuses have started letting out rooms at exorbitant rate in the hostel. In these premises the girls are victims of several kind of exploitation. Besides the lack of space, privacy, hygienic food, there is also lack of security for the girls students.
The Delhi Commission for Women (DWC) conducted a study of the residential facilities available to out-of-town girl students of Delhi University and made several recommendations regarding provision of hostels for girl students. The statistics and finding of the study conducted by the DWC clearly reveal that there is an acute shortage of accommodations for girl students in Delhi and immediate steps have to be initiated to solve the problem.
In view of above, the following proposals are made :-
(A) To provide 100% GIA to women colleges 100% funded by Delhi Government for construction of girls hostels depending on the availability of land, with them.
(B) To provide 50% GIA to women college 5% funded by Delhi Government for construction of girls hostel depending on the availability of land, with them.
To provide 25% GIA to Delhi University Colleges and Trust Colleges for women, which are not funded by Delhi Government, for construction of additional rooms in the hostels for girl students in the existing hostel facilities available with the colleges subject to maximum of Rs. 50 Lakhs
Estimates of the construction works may be got vetted by a Govt. Agency like PWD.
Subsequent income from the Hostels constructed with the grant of Govt. of Delhi shall be shared between college & the Govt. On the same ratio of GIA after deducting running & maintenance expenses of the Hostel.
Girl Hostels constructed by one college may also admit girl students of other women colleges.
An outlay of Rs. 80 Lac is approved for this scheme in Annual Plan 2005-06.

8. AWARDS FOR MERITORIOUS STUDENTS STUDYING IN GOVERNMENT COLLEGES (Approved outlay for 10 th plan 2002-2007 Rs. 10.00 Lakhs) outlay for annual plan 2005-06 Rs.2.00 Lakhs)
The objective of this scheme is to institute an award for meritorious students pursuing general stream education in Government colleges with a view to encouraging the spirit to excel, and recognizing the merit.
It has been observed that there are various scholarships instituted for students pursuing technical and professional courses but there is no such scheme where students pursuing general stream education are given the incentives. Therefore, it is appropriate that Awards be instituted for meritorious students pursuing general stream education. This will serve as a motivation to intelligent and serious students and would boost their morale.
All the three general streams i.e. Science, Commerce, and Arts, in a three years Degree Course have two segments viz. Honours and General Pass. There would be as many number of students topping in each of this streams. The topper in each of the three streams for each year will be given a Cash Award of Rs 5000/- each. Thus the total expenditure likely to be incurred will be Rs.5000X3X6=Rs 90,000/- per annum. Hence provision of initial outlay Rs 10 Lacs has been made during 10th plan and
Rs 2,00,000/- for the financial year 2005-06. The amount will be given in the form of GIA to the Colleges concerned.
9. SPECIAL COACHING FACILITIES FOR C.E.T. FOR MEDICAL AND ENGINEERING COURSES TO DESERVING STUDENTS (outlay for 10th Five Year Plan Rs.50.00 Lakhs & Proposed outlay for Annual Plan 2005-06 Rs.10.00 Lakhs )
The objective is to provide specialized coaching for Combined Entrance Test for Medical, Engineering, Architecture and Law courses to needy and deserving students studying in Government schools.
The Combined Entrance Test for Medical, Engineering, Architecture and Law Courses conducted by various Universities is highly competitive nature. Students of Govt. schools desirous of pursuing these courses, often do not make it due to lack of guidance in this regard. Private Coaching Institutes charge exorbitant fee, which majority of these students cannot afford.
A component within 10th Plan be created to impart specialized Coaching facilities for these courses during vacation for needy and deserving students studying in Government schools and wishing to pursue these professional courses. It is planned that initially these courses will be conducted with the help of the GGS IP University. However, the expenditure in conducting these courses will be borne by this Directorate, which will be given to the University in form of GIA. Norms and modalities of coaching shall be worked out in consultation with GGS IP University.
