The Gujarat University has “de-affiliated” 84 colleges falling in five districts of Mahisagar, Dahod, Chhotaudepur, the Panchmahals and Vadodara rural, with effect from the current year.
GU vice-chancellor MN Patel said that these colleges have been transferred to the newly-formed Shri Govind Guru University being set up at Godhra.
Patel said that transferring such a huge number of colleges to a new university would reduce the burden on the GU, particularly with regard to conducting admissions and examinations.

The administrative office of the new university currently set up in the premises of the Government Polytechnic at Godhra was inaugurated by Chief Minister Anandiben Patel in third week of May this year.
