Rajiv Gandhi University wanted to induct over 6000 students from different parts of the state and about 600 staff to start the courses in 2008 itself at three different centers in the state.
One at Idupulapayala in Kadapa district, being the head quarters of the University. The other at Basara in Adilabad District and the third at Nuzvid in Krishna District.
