Mumbai: The Maharashtra government will set up a Marathi medium college in Kolhapur for the Marathi- speaking people residing in the border areas of Karnataka, a minister said on Tuesday, June 30.

Higher and technical education minister Uday Samant, in a statement here, said the decision has been taken with a view to cater to the educational needs of the Marathi-speaking population residing in the neighboring state.

He said the new state-run college will be a sub-center of the Shivaji University at Kolhapur.

The Kolhapur district collector will provide a five-acre plot for the proposed college following which all necessary official permissions will be given, Samant said.

“The college will start functioning from the next academic year,” the release said.

“A committee headed by Shivaji University vice-chancellor Nitin Karmalkarwill work out the modalities for establishing the educational institute,” it added.

The border areas of Karnataka have a sizeable Marathi- speaking population.
