The Government has accepted recommendation for restructuring and strengthening of Hindustan Aeronautics Limited (HAL) and setting up of an Aerospace University at a cost of Rs.592 crore.

A Detailed Project Report (DPR) “Society for HAL Aeronautics Research & Technologies Institute” has been reviewed by the Defence Ministry.

The revised DPR with name of the university as “Aeronautics Research & Technology University (ARTU)” has been submitted to the Government.

This information was given by Minister of State Shripad Naik in a written reply to Lok Sabha on 3 July 2019.

It was suggested that for the formation of the Institute through an Act of Parliament, the structure should be in line with relevant Rules, Regulations and Procedures in vogue in other Central Universities and or Institutes.

HAL’s role would be facilitating the establishment of the proposed University and providing secretarial help, he said.

As regards managing the University and or Institute, a separate well-defined model would be worked out.

The institute would require about 200 acres of land.

The International Institutions to be associated with the proposed Institute have not yet been decided, said Shripad Naik.
