Share this

Itanagar, Nov 29: Much has been said and heard about Namsai becoming the next educational hub of the state; in fact it really is happening. Namsai, the headquarter town in particular has three colleges, a university and a nursing school in the higher education sector and Namsai as district is filled with one hundred and eighty one schools, both private and governmental.

During his recent visit to Namsai for the formal inauguration of the nascent district, Chief Minister Nabam Tuki laid the foundation for the permanent campus of Arunachal University of Studies (AUS).

The university is into its second academic year from a temporary facility and has some highly qualified members in its faculty. AUS is also launching its law programme from the next academic session. The land for the campus was donated by Agriculture Minister Chowna Mein and MLA Chow Zingnu Namchoom. Regarding the land donation Chowna Mein had said that in order to usher in development we must also make our contributions.

The Government Polytechnic College, which is in its maiden year is currently also facilitating the students of the Government Polytechnic College at Roing.

The ANM School which was inaugurated on 26thNovember, 2014 by Health Minister Kalikho Pul is scheduled to start classes from next year. With so much happening in the education sector, the literacy rate of the district which is 54.24 % is expected to shoot up in the near future.

The opportunities offered by the district will undoubtedly prove to be a boon for students of the state especially those from poor economic background. The prospects of Namsai making it as an educational hub may be attributed to good connectivity and its geographical location.

At a time when Namsai is developing into an educational hub, it is fortunate that the state government has adopted zero tolerance policy on education and provided that the intention of the policy is implemented in its truest form, Namsai will not only make for itself but become a true centre of human resource development in the state.
