The university currently stands as a symbol of tribute to its founders and visionaries, who have worked for its growth and development. The present campus of the university is called as Gandhi Krishi Vignyan Kendra and the former Prime Minister of India Smt. Indira Gandhi inaugurated it in the year 1969. The list of colleges coming under the jurisdiction of this university is given below:
