The Central University of Himachal Pradesh is a university operating from the Temporary Academic Block which is established at Shahpur, Himachal Pradesh. This university had been allotted to Dehra town but was shifted to Shahpur for temporary classes although enough space was provided at Dehra and later divided into two locations. The university was founded in 2009 as a result of the government's policy to establish Central Universities in each of the states that do not already have a central university.[1]

History[edit]

Prime Minister Manmohan Singh, in his address to the nation on 15 August 2007, announced the establishment of a Central University in each of the states that did not already have a central university. Subsequently, the Planning Commission provided for the establishment of 16 new Central Universities according to the Central Universities Act 2009 (No. 25 of 2009) of the Indian Parliament. The act received presidential assent on 20 March 2009 and provided for the establishment of the Central University of Himachal Pradesh, amongst others.
