After the Ministry of Human Resources Development (MHRD), New Delhi had sanctioned a Central Tribal University of Andhra Pradesh (CTUAP) in Relli village, Vizianagaram district under the Thirteenth Schedule to the Andhra Pradesh Reorganisation Act, 2014 (No. 6 of 2014), dated 10.11.2018. Prof. TV Kattimani has been appointed as the first vice-chancellor and has taken charge today.
The University has been built aroud 526 acres of land in Relli Village, Vizianagaram district to provide avenues of education, viz., especially higher education and research facilities to tribal students and bring them to main stream. CTU also aims to disseminate and advance knowledge by providing instructional and research facilities in tribal art, tradition, culture, language, medicinal systems, customs, forest base economic activities, flora, and fauna besides making available to them the advancement in technologies concerning the natural resources of the tribal areas .
CTU has formulated tribal centric development models, publish reports and monographs and to organize conferences and seminars on issues relating to tribes and to provide inputs to the Government(s) on policy matters in different spheres.
Soon after the formulation in 2019, CTU has taken appropriate measures for promoting the tribal communities to be able to manage, administer and look after their own resources and needs by accessing to higher education through a university of their own. Moreover it does disseminate and advance knowledge by providing instructional and research facilities in such other branches of learning as it may deem fit.
Hopefully, Prof.TV Kattimani with his experience as VC of Indira Gandhi National Tribal University in Amarkantak will concentrate on the growth of the University in his 5 year period. As apoet, critic and transtlator, Kattimani would do his best to bring laurels to CTU as he himself a recipient of several state and national level awards.
