VARANASI : Enhancing amenities to ensure a vibrant and smooth campus life for students is among the top priorities of Banaras Hindu University. The university has been putting greater focus on strengthening infrastructure by investing more effort as well as funds. BHU is not only constructing new hostels, but also renovating old buildings, in order to address the growing demand of campus accommodation for students on the campus. Ranveer Sanskrit Vidyalaya of the Banaras Hindu University, has also been facing for a long time the shortage of hostel accommodation. The school, which finds its roots in 1883 and was brought under the management of BHU in 1918, attracts students from various states of the country. Hence, hostel availability for students hailing from cities other than Varanasi has been a long pending issue. This has now been resolved with availability of nearly 120 hostel seats for students. The university has renovated and allocated Charu Mahal, also a heritage building, to the school for the purpose. The building has 20 flats and 52 rooms, and can comfortably accommodate nearly 120 students.

The renovation of the building was undertaken on priority at the initiative of Vice-Chancellor Prof. Sudhir Kumar Jain. The building has been equipped with all the necessary amenities needed for the occupants. The building is estimated to be nearly 150 years old and has assumed the status of a heritage structure.

Vice-Chancellor Prof. Sudhir Kumar Jain said that the university gives topmost importance to the needs of students. “As compared to university students, school students have different sets of needs when they go outstation for studies. Hence, we prioritized the availability of hostel rooms for the students of Ranveer Sanskrit Vidyalaya. We are committed to provide better infrastructure and facilities to our students and we are constantly working to achieve this”, said Prof. Jain.

Dr. Anand Kumar Jain, Principal, Ranveer Sanskrit Vidyalaya, said the two floor building has not been in a good state for long and wasn’t even being optimally utilized. “Now that it has been renovated and handed over to the school, it is going to be really beneficial for our students. We are grateful to the Hon’ble Vice-Chancellor for his visionary leadership”, said Dr. Jain.
