Bathinda, October 10

Extensive research on the presence of heavy metallic content in groundwater in Malwa region and to find out a viable alternative to stubble-burning will be the two key research areas of the Central University of Punjab in the coming years, said prof RP Tiwari, Vice Chancellor of the university, during a media interaction here. Union Education minister Ramesh Pokhriyal will be virtually inaugurating the new campus of the university in Bathinda on October 12.

Professor Tiwari said, “Our research projects will primarily be focused on ensuring that they provide a solution and be of utility to people of the region and state. The university has already tied-up with Bhabha Atomic Research Centre to map the uranium concentration in the drinking water in region. We will be laying more emphasis on experiential learning for our students and research scholars. Agriculture is not considered as a lucrative profession by many today, we will also conduct research to that effect as well. Moreover, we will introduce botanical garden and medicinal plants in the university campus, where plants from the region will be grown for research purposes.”
