Following is a report from TOI:

NEW DELHI: The Indian National Defence University (INDU), which will work towards infusing ‘strategic culture’ in governance, will be set up at an initial cost of Rs 395 crore near New Delhi.

The Union Cabinet, chaired by Prime Minister Manmohan Singh, on Thursday accorded “in principle” approval to establish the main INDU campus, which will come up on 200 acres at Binola in Gurgaon district of Haryana. As reported by TOI earlier, INDU will bring together existing institutes like the National Defence College (Delhi), College of Defence Management (Secunderabad), Defence Services Staff College (Wellington) and National Defence Academy (Khadakwasla), which are currently affiliated to different universities, under its umbrella.

As a fully-autonomous institution to be created by an Act of Parliament, INDU will undertake long-term defence and strategic studies, create “synergy” between academicians and government.
