Gujarat Governor Kamla Beniwal Sunday launched in Ahmedabad a state university's directory – carrying information about colleges and course – that can be accessed on a mobile phone.

With this, the Gujarat University has taken a lead in making available all information pertaining to its colleges and courses as well as related matters on cell phone.

The project has been executed by knowledge process services provider, Smile of India, along with its partner and professional services firm Klynveld Peat Marwick Goerdeler (KPMG), in association with the Gujarat University.

The directory can easily be downloaded on all mobile phones having internet or General Packet Radio Service (GPRS) connection through the website of the Gujarat University or Smile of India and can be transferred through SMS and Bluetooth.

Parimal Trivedi, vice-chancellor of Gujarat University, said that the mobile directory is loaded with several features like a search facility to find detailed information pertaining to colleges and courses offered in various cities.

It will give listing of all the cities, colleges, their names, addresses, phone numbers of all the colleges and departments affiliated to Gujarat University and will also update contact details of colleges.

“Most importantly it will give auto update on important information like admission status quota etc,” he added.
