Hyderabad: Education Minister Sabitha Indra Reddy along with Animal Husbandry Minister Talasani Srinivas Yadav laid the foundation stone for the construction of a hostel building for boys at Osmania University on Saturday.

The three-storey hostel building is built at a cost of Rs.39.50 crores in 2.76 acres of land for accommodating about 500 students on the campus. At Osmania University, there are 24 hostels, of which 12 belong to boys and 12 belong to girls. However, with majority of students belonging to girls, some hostels belonging to boys have been allocated to girls. As the boys are facing an accommodation problem on the campus, the university authorities have decided to construct another hostel building for boys.

Officials said the construction of the hostel will be completed in one year and the tendering process in this regard has already been completed.
