‘Ghost Village to Host Village’ scheme to continue
Swami Rama Himalayan University Vice-Chancellor Dr Vijay Dhasmana stated, today, that the GHSST campus was formally inaugurated in the year 2018. Along with the construction of hostels in GHSST, the earlier announced ‘Ghost Village to Host Village’ scheme will continue. Under this, the university administration did not arrange a separate hostel for the students who came to study in GHSST, but appealed to the villagers in the nearby villages to repair their buildings and rent them out to the students. Due to this, the students who came to study in GHSST started living in these houses offered on rent. The students had the advantage of living in a safe family atmosphere, while the income of villagers of about 18 villages in the form of rent began accruing.
