The facilities available
in this rural college are impressive. As well as mains
electricity, there is a powerful generator to make up
any shortfall. Three large tanks supply piped water
to most of the toilets and bathrooms while five hand
pumps are available for those who prefer the warm water
pumped up from 130 feet underground. The water is sweet
and safe to drink.
The college boasts a computer room
and a well-stocked library with ample table space for
keen students to work at. The lecture rooms are airy and spacious and all have ceiling fans. Four regional
daily newspapers arrive early
every morning as well as an English national paper.
There is a landline telephone and two mobiles, a fax
machine, large colour television,
bank and a twice-weekly market selling a range of fresh
fruit, vegetables and household items. There are numerous
shops on the roadside selling everything from medicine
to sewing thread seven days a week. Amarpurkashi
has its own bus stop just outside the village, connecting
it to Chandausi, a market town 8 miles away, Bilari,
just 3 miles north and the noisy bustling city of Moradabad, 20 miles
further on. The nearest railway station is just 4 miles
away while Chandausi and Moradabad
stations have computerized booking facilities where
you can book a journey to anywhere in India.
