The new campuses will accommodate over 26,000 students in the coming years, it said. Deputy chief minister Manish Sisodia has approved funds worth Rs 2306.58 crores for creating state-of-the-art infrastructure at upcoming campuses of Ambedkar University, it said.

Sisodia, who also holds the education portfolio, said every year more than 2.5 lakh students pass out from Class 12 and apply to various universities. "But not everyone gets admission to the prominent universities despite having talent and capability. To cater to the educational needs of such a large population of students, the new campuses are designed to ensure the most conducive environment to facilitate collective engagement, spaces for self-growth, knowledge production and dissemination, community living and inclusive culture," he said.
