Provided by the funds of Vidhayak Nidhi of MLA from City North, Anugrah Narayan Singh, the ambulance was formally inaugurated in front of the office of the dean student welfare (DSW) by the MLA in presence of AU's V-C Prof A K Singh. 
It is worth mentioning here that the said service was proposed around three years back keeping in mind thousands of male and female inmate resides in various hostels of AU including those residing within the four walls of Women Collegeand thousands of day scholars. For meeting out the medical need of these inmates, the hostel has just one dispensary which caters to the needs of providing first aid and distributing some medicines. 

There have been instances of students getting ill at late hours and in some cases they had to be taken to hospital but as there was no four wheeler available at the hostel, the hostel superintendent had to take the inmates on personal vehicle. 

Later, around two years back, the EC member and MLA provided the needed fund for the purchase of the vehicle and the running costs of the said facility, including driver and diesel was to be met by AU authorities which got delayed. 

But better late then never, the ambulance was finally inaugurated by Anugrah Narayan Singh on the campus on Wednesday. 

The ambulance would be stationed in the main campus during day hours and at WH during night hours. AU authorities will bear the running cost and the driver has been provided by AU. 

Along with the V-C, others who were present at the inaugurating ceremony included the FO, P K Singh, DSW, Prof R K Singh, dean science Prof S D Dixit and various faculty members and employees.
