Dr RP Nishank – Union Education Minister:
Myself, along with MoS PMO Dr Jitendra Singh ji, e-inaugurated the new building of the Central University of Jammu today.
Central University of Jammu started in 2011 with 3 departments and 60 students, & currently has 24 departments, 57 courses, & 1800+ students.
At present, 72 research projects worth Rs 127 Crores is ongoing in the University.
The University runs various courses for the preservation and promotion of Indian knowledge tradition. It also offers various vocational courses under the Skill Development Mission.
The way the Central University of Jammu has been working to make students self-reliant and self-dependent with the integration of Indian knowledge makes me very confident that the University will play a leading role in the assimilation and adoption of NEP 2020 in the coming years
