The Parliament has approved the Central Universities (Amendment) Bill, 2023, to establish the "Sammakka Sarakka Central Tribal University" in Telangana. Union Education Minister Dharmendra Pradhan mentioned that delays were due to the state government's slow provision of land. The university aims to fulfill regional aspirations by improving access to quality higher education, focusing on tribal art, culture, customs, and technological advancements for India's tribal population. The bill highlights the central tribal university's role in conducting educational and research activities, similar to other central universities. Prime Minister Narendra Modi had previously announced the university's establishment in Mulugu district, Telangana, before the assembly elections.
