He wished to develop international facilities like Centralized Cafeteria which can cater to about 5000 students and should also have provision for teachers to have their club near such cafeteria so that the multidisciplinary scientific interaction may take place among the students and between teacher and students.

He also wished to have centralized instrumentation facilities of world class. The vice chancellor mentioned about his dream project of translational research.

“These all facilities will improve the scientific environment and output of international standard and also will attract international faculty”, he said.
