Gandhigram Rural Institute

Updated on: Feb 27, 2013

The Gandhigram Rural Institute (GRI) was founded in 1956. It is a nationally and internationally recognized Institute for its contribution to rural education, so much so that the New Education Policy of the Nation reflects the principles evolved here in developing the rural university concept. The Gandhigram Rural Institute has a campus of nearly 200 acres in a rural setting. Gandhigram is easily accessible by rail and road. The climate of the place is pleasant all through the year and the panorama of nature surrounding Gandhigram is pleasing to the eye and inspiring to the soul.
