Jammu, September 13

Days after Dogri language got the status of the official language, inter alia, of Jammu and Kashmir, University of Jammu (JU), has decided to establish a Centre of Excellence in Dogri.

This was stated by JU Vice-Chancellor Professor Manoj K Dhar after the 86th meeting of the university council, the apex decision-making body of the university, held under the chairmanship of L-G and Chancellor Manoj Sinha in Srinagar yesterday.

He said an advisory committee of eminent persons, who had contributed to the growth and development of Dogri would be constituted and a proposal of establishing a “Centre of Excellence in Dogri” would be developed soon.

The council favourably considered the long-pending demand of research students and approved increase in the research fellowship of the research scholars from Rs 5,000 to Rs 10,000 per month and also gave nod to no-fee hike for two years considering the difficult conditions created by Covid, he added.

“It also approved the establishment of the department of journalism and media studies, two-year executive MBA programme and diploma in museology & archaeology. Establishment of the department of philosophy was also approved in view of the unique position and resources of the university in this region,” Professor Dhar said.
