Raksha Shakti University is being planned as a school for security education, located on the outskirts of the Gujarat capital Gandhinagar. The objectives of this institute comprise an integrated modern, scientific and technological training for Indian youth in internal security and facilities for research in internal security. The slightly undulating site identified by the organization lies next to the Lavad village in Dehgam taluka on the banks of the dry Meshwo river.

Kalayojan’s
design, in its innate style, makes the layout placements prioritizing
response to site topography by placing the parade grounds and play
fields on the flatter plains and the residential facilities on the
contours at the water front. The discipline followed throughout the
layout in terms of axial development and formal, almost symmetrical
placement of facilities serves to define its identity as a defence
establishment. This discipline in planning is further buttressed by a
meticulous maintenance of view lines through all facilities on the
campus.
