The Governor, who is the Chancellor of the Jammu University, was chairing the 72nd meeting of the University Council, at Raj Bhavan here this evening.

The University Council authorized the Vice Chancellor of the Jammu University to take all remedial measures-actions within his competence on the recommendations of the Enquiry Committee (headed by the Chief Secretary) which had been constituted by the Chief Minister to look into the allegations of administrative impropriety, favouritism and financial irregularities against the previous Vice Chancellor and the officers of the University. The Vice Chancellor was also advised to ensure that the recommendations-observations of this Committee, which require special approvals, should be placed before the concerned bodies of the University on a time bound basis and the entire Report processed without any delay whatsoever.

The Governor observed that with the revival and the promotion of tourism in the State the youth having pursued short-term certificate courses could find ready employment avenues. He said that the Universities could also think of organizing other such courses having potential in the emerging job market to benefit the youth of the State.

Referring to the creation and upgradation of infrastructure facilities at the main Campus and the off-site Campuses, the Governor said that the construction of students hostels, particularly for girls, need to be given priority attention so that the students from remote areas could pursue their academic careers in large numbers.

He also stressed that all the newly coming up buildings must have adequate provision for use of solar energy, harvesting of rain water, fire safety measures and ramps to facilitate physically challenged persons.

The Governor advised the Vice Chancellor to undertake visits to the affiliated Colleges to monitor the facilities and the performance of these institutions, adding that those of the Principals, teachers and the colleges showing outstanding performances could be awarded. Referring to the need for conducting academic audit of educational institutions, he said that such a mechanism can help in harmonious growth of all the institutions of higher learning.

Police on reaching the campus mercilessly started beating the students including the girls, the students said.

Police resorted to lathicharge to disperse the students protesting against the university officials over an alleged misbehavior. At least 15 students including girls received injuries during the clash three of them shifted to the
Government Medical College and Hospital for treatment, they added.

Pakistan epicentre of global terrorism, says senior Indian Army officer

Jammu: Pakistan has become an epicentre of global terrorism and has failed to tackle growing extremism on its soil, a senior Indian Army officer said on Monday.

Pakistan is an epicentre of global terrorism, it is breeding terrorists, it is training them, it is equipping them and this is still going on, Lieutenant General JP Nehra, General Officer Commanding (GOC), 16 Corps, expressed the aforementioned views during a seminar held in Jammu.

The seminar Mapping Contemporary Pakistan was jointly organised by the Department of Strategic and Regional Studies, University of Jammu, and the White Knight Corps.

Although Pakistan is an epicentre of the global terror, it is a key ally of the United States in the war against terrorism, Lt Gen Nehra said.

It is a partner in the war to tackle terror in other countries, such as Afghanistan, but has failed to tackle growing terror on its soil.

He added: Pakistan occupies a unique geostrategic place in the map of the world and South Asia. It could have exploited its location better for its economy and other things.

Jammu and Kashmir likely to lift ban on herb extraction

Jammu: Jammu and Kashmir is considering lifting a ban on the extraction of rare medicinal herbs as residents say they are losing out on valuable business even as neighbouring states cultivate them and imports from China have also got a boost.

Hundreds of people living in the remote mountainous forests of Kashmir used to earn their living by picking these herbs - some used to treat cancer, besides jaundice and other ailments - and selling them to pharmaceutical companies through agents in their area. But the state government imposed a ban in 2005, saying they may go extinct and needed a rest period.

Now voices are being raised against the ban, strongly enough for the government to consider its removal - though with some restrictions.

Forest Minister Altaf Ahmad agreed that the livelihood of hundreds of people living near the mountainous forests depended on herb picking. In 2005, experts had advised that the herbs extraction needed some rest, lest they go extinct. We feel that time has come to lift this ban though with some restrictions, Ahmad said.

The remote mountainous forests in Jammu and Kashmir have rare and best quality herbs like dioscorea deltoida, valeriana wallichi, picrozia and podophyllum hexandrum, besides many others.

As herb picking and extraction flourished, a private entrepreneur established a herb processing unit in the mountainous town of Kishtwar, which is surrounded by mountains bearing these herbs.

Sanjay Gupta, the owner of the unit, said this was a means of employment for hundreds of poor people in the area.

A minimum of 8,000 to 10,000 people living around Kishtwar were involved in this business. They could earn Rs.300-400 per day from herb extraction, Gupta said over phone from Kishtwar.

These herbs grow on the high mountains like in Paddar, Kishtwar, Doda and Bhaderwah, the neighbouring states of Himachal Pradesh and Uttarakhand. But the Jammu and Kashmir herbs are top rated.

Farmers in Uttarakhand and Himachal Pradesh are cultivating these herbs. The herbs do not get natural conditions when they are cultivated. This reduces the concentration of the active profile and principle of the herbs. This is the reason that naturally growing herbs in Jammu and Kashmir are of best quality, said Harish Chander of the biology department in Jammu University.

Gupta said: The quality of these herbs in China is somewhat close to that in Jammu and Kashmir. So the ban gave a boost to the import of these herbs from there.

The herbs from Jammu and Kashmir were used in medicines curing cancer besides fever, jaundice and many infections. So they were used in antibiotics, antispasmodics and steroids besides many other medicines.

Chander said American tests have rated podophyllum hexandrum of Jammu and Kashmir as the best in the world for anti-cancer drugs.

Amitabh Mattoo welcome back to Kashmir, tweets Omar

Jammu: Jammu and Kashmir Chief Minister Omar Abdullah on Monday made an open offer to noted academician Amitabh Mattoo to return to the state and advise us.

Mattoo, a former vice chancellor of Jammu University and currently Director, India Australia Institute, Melbourne, was recently in Kashmir to visit his family there.

Mattoo, an authority on international relations, was appointed as Vice Chancellor CENTRAL UNIVERSITY OF JAMMU, but he declined and instead accepted the offer of the institute in Australia.

Mattoo in his tweets, during his visit to the Valley, made certain critical remarks about the environmental degradation and little governance.

Some of Mattoos tweets compiled by one of his followers, read:

I am deeply disappointed by what I see, but I do hope people like you join the fight to improve the state of affairs.

No strikes, little militancy, great Panchayat electns, but where is governance in K? Kashmir Inc: a collection of vested interests flourishes

When governments fail, can civil society please give it a try? Heard of a SAVE SRINAGAR campaign. The time is now.

Tiranga Yatra impact: Educational institutions closed in Jammu

Jammu: After deporting three Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) leaders to Punjab, the Omar Abdullah government on Tuesday announced closure of all educational institutions in Jammu as a precaution to prevent trouble in the city and other parts of the region.

The government announced closure of all schools, colleges and universities as official agencies apprehended trouble after the deportation of Arun Jaitley, Sushma Swaraj and Ananth Kumar Monday night from Jammu airport to Madhopur in Punjab to thwart their flag-hoisting plans in Srinagar on Republic Day Wednesday.

The action of the government has fuelled tensions in Jammu, where it is felt that the government has acted under pressure from separatists. The BJP, too, had started mobilising its workers to stage protests.

A government spokesman said that in view of the Republic Day arrangements, all the educational institutions, including the University of Jammu and colleges, would remain closed Wednesday.

The managements of the institutions, including the private ones, have been directed to strictly adhere to the directive, he added.

But the sources revealed that the real intention of the government was to prevent the students from holding protests against its steps of stopping the flag hoisting in Srinagar.

The government has also instructed that the tricolour should not be allowed to be hoisted by the BJP at any place in the state.

History

University of Jammu was established in 1969 with the separation of Jammu & Kashmir University. Since then, it started its academic session for spiritual and material elements in life, thirst for knowledge and virtue. In the history of its tenure in education, it has offered its courses to a number of eligible candidates across the country, India. Recently, Jammu University has set up satellite campuses in Bhaderwah, Kathua and Poonch. One campus out of these campuses has been formally inaugurated by the President of India, Smt Pratibha Devisingh Patil.

Established on 3rd of March 1976 Distance Education aims at diversifying and providing educational opportunities far beyond the close confines of a classroom and making them available to all those who aspire and endeavour for education. It is based on the philosophy that anything, which can be learnt in the regular classroom, can equally be learnt through distance education. It is an innovative system, which is academically sound and economically viable and as such, has proved to be a blessing for those who have no access to education. Motivated by the desire to provide education at the doorsteps of the learners, University of Jammu established the Directorate of Distance Education, (then known as Institute of Correspondence Education) in March, 1976. The courses offered by the Directorate are intended to cater to the following:

Students who have had to discontinue their education in the regular system for various reasons; students in far flung and inaccessible hilly areas of the state; the students who were not accommodated in the mainstream education institutions; in-service persons; women and individuals who regard education as a life time activity.

In recent times there had been stupendous increase in the educational needs of the country. Jammu and Kashmir State has not remained exception to this phenomenon. Despite being affected by virulent terrorism over the period of last one and a half decades, there has been a progressive increase in the demand for higher education in the state. Because of inherent factors and constraints, conventional education institutions were/are unable to cope up with the augmented demand for higher education. The DDE has partly helped to cope up with this demand in the Jammu region.As often now, the DDE is offering a number of postgraduate and undergraduate courses. Besides traditional courses, it is imparting professional courses such as Master of Education, Bachelor of Education and Postgraduate Diploma in Business Administration. In the current session, it has launched Postgraduate course in Fisheries. This is a job oriented course and first of its kind through distance mode of education in the country.

Currently, the DDE has study centres one each in muffasil govt degree colleges - Kathua, Poonch, Rajouri, Bhaderwah, Kishtwar and Doda. By these centres, the DDE has truly brought the facility of higher education to the doorsteps of the distance learners of the remote rural, backward and inaccessible hilly areas of the Jammu region. In the immediate future, the DDE has planned to introduce PG course in English, postgraduate diploma courses in English language teaching and computer applications. These courses will especially serve the educational needs of the people of the Jammu region. Plans are also afoot to adopt multi media instructional pattern. Once it is accomplished, it will greatly enrich the learning environment in the region.

Defering entrance test surprises principals

Jammu, June 17, 2010
The deferment of the decision regarding admissions to postgraduate courses based on entrance test by the Jammu University authorities has surprised many college principals. The college principals were of the opinion that the new mechanism of entrance-based admissions was much better than the prevailing system of merit-based admissions to postgraduate courses.

The principal of Government Gandhi Memorial (GGM) Science College, Prof MS Baleoria, said the decision of the university authorities to conduct an entrance test for admissions to postgraduate courses was better than the prevailing system.

Expressing surprise over the deferment of the decision, Baleoria said, 'Though I do not know the reason for the deferment of the decision, it was a better way of admitting students.'

He added that under the present system some deserving students could not get admission due to variation in marks, but under the entrance-based admission system all students would get an equal opportunity of admission.

Similarly, Anita Sudhan, principal of Sri Pratap Memorial Rajput (SPMR) College of Commerce, said, 'When the university is conducting the entrance test for MCA and MBA, why can't it do it for other courses as well. The reason for this sudden decision is unknown but the entrance-based admission system is much better than the present system of admissions.' She added through the entrance test the university could get serious and intelligent students.

Meanwhile, Principal of Maulana Azad Memorial (MAM) College Ajeet Angral said the college was running a postgraduate course in mathematics. He said earlier the college used to have its own procedure for admissions, but this year they got a notification that admissions to postgraduate courses would be provided only through the entrance test.

'Now, when were prepared for the new mechanism of admissions, I was informed yesterday that we would have to give admissions as per the prevailing system. So we had to adjust and readjust the system for a smooth admission process,' said Angral.

However, Prof RD Sharma, Dean Academic Affairs, Jammu University, said the university had deferred the entrance test-based admission system due to some official reasons. He said the university would implement the new mechanism from the next academic session.

Sharma said, 'Our academic session starts in August and if we implement the new admission mechanism, we will have to start the academic session in October, which will result in the loss of precious time of students.' 'The new mechanism also requires a lot of preparation. So this year we will offer admissions as per the old system,' added Sharma.
