University Plans to Run Trams in Campus 
Electric-driven trams may soon chug on tracks on the Lovely Professional University campus, situated in the fertile Doaba region of Punjab.
The LPU has already written to the Punjab government seeking permission to launch the public transport system, and if granted nod, it would be only second place in India, after Kolkata, to have the eco-friendly service.
Chancellor of the university, Ashok Mittal, said that talks are on with Calcutta Tramways Company (CTC) Ltd - which operates trams in Kolkata.
“CTC has given its nod to share the technical know-how with us, and by 2014 LPU will have a dedicated tram system,” Mittal said, adding that a circular ring needs to be created to allow the trams to run across the 600-acres campus.
Mittal said that the need for an intra-campus, cost effective and non-polluting transport system was felt after observing that the students and staff had to traverse long distances within the huge campus.
The university invited proposals from the students to address the challenge and several suggestions - ranging from CNG-run auto-rickshaws, electric rickshaws, mini-buses to mono-rails - were received.Finally, it was decided to go for trams. A teams of students were working on this project approached the CTC to keep the project cost-effective.

Violence on campus 
In April 2011, During a Soccer game a student was beaten by opposition team members and died a few hours later in hospital. The beaten student was from Mizoram and the three accused were Sudanese and Tanzanian. The racial aspect of the crime led to near-rioting on the campus, destroying a number of kiosks and cars. Tension continued with the university closed for three days, and with police being pelted with stones by angry students. LPU Pro-Chancellor Rashmi Mittal described the attack as, "students didn’t take the spirit of the game in a positive manner". The university's management have also been criticised for ignoring earlier racial attacks.
