IMD plans weather centre at SRM university

Sunday, August 26, 2018

The India Meteorological Department has proposed to set up a weather centre for the State at the SRM university in Mangalagiri mandal of Guntur.

IMD Director General K.J.Ramesh had discussions in this regard with SRMU Pro Vice-Chancellor D.Narayana Rao recently.

The Pro-VC explained about the IMD operations and enquired about the facilities available at the newly established university. The IMD was asked by the Chief Minister to set up its facility at the earliest and the government has already allotted one acre of land for it in Amaravati.

The proposed weather forecasting centre at SRMU will be going before the IMD comes up with a full-fledged unit in the emerging capital city.
