The UGC allocated Rs. 350 lakhs for funding departmental and central facilities at the campuses at Anantapur and Kurnool. In addition, in its academic recommendations, the Visiting Committee expressed the view that the University is playing a vital role in the study and analysis of the drought situation. It has observed that this advanced research on drought needs further strengthening since some of the departments are actively engaged in working on alternative strategies to mitigate drought.
