"The University requires substantial amount of funds to realize the planned initiatives of infrastructure, academics and student facilities. The University relies on funding from government sources which now are placing emphasis on internal resource generation by the University to support and sustain the growth of the University," said the appeal.
"The Alumni and Well-wishers of AMU have played a pivotal role in not only providing constructive suggestions and guidance on betterment of academic functioning of the University but also contributed generously for creation and strengthening of Academic Infrastructure of AMU," he added.
