Maharashtra Government decided to setup Technological university. This new university will be named Dr Babasaheb Ambedkar Technical Sciences University, and will be headquartered at Lonare in Raigad district.
This university will have four divisional centers: Nagpur, Mumbai, Pune and Aurangabad, and five sub-centers at Amravati, Nanded, Jalgaon, Kolhapur and Solapur.
"The state government has been wanting to ease pressure on conventional universities overburdened with a large number of affiliated colleges imparting technical courses like engineering. It is proposed to put up colleges that teach courses approved by All India Council of Technical Education, including engineering streams, pharmacy, architecture and hotel management under the new technical university," said higher and technical education minister Rajesh Tope.
