He has visited many countries like USA, UK, Japan, China, Bulgaria, Italy, France, Ethopia & Hong Kong.

He has been awarded World Green Award on 24th April 2000 at Mavalankar Hall by NCR award Committee, NCT Delhi.

A large section of the teachers is actively engaged in research. All the teachers, anyway, guide research at Master's and Ph.D. programmes. As many as 89 theses have been awarded Ph.D. in past 3 years.

Besides this, we have completed 28 projects in past 3 years with a total budget outlay of Rs.72,00,000. All the funding agencies have in one or more instances have identified our faculty for their research abilities and sponsored their research projects.

Now we have 24 ongoing research projects with a total budget outlay of a little more than Rs. 2 crores. About a dozen of research, proposals are in the pipeline. Most projects in progress have been very effectively supported by the University administration. Recently we have established a new forum called 'Jiwaji University Research Forum' which provides a platform for active researchers to discuss and resolve to reach better highs in research. We keep pondering ourselves for better research proposals. Recently we organized a workshop on 'Planning and Presentation of Research Proposals', which was attended by the senior Executives from the Department of Science & Technology and the Council of Scientific and Industrial Research.

Our laboratories are equipped to meet the need of the type of research they harbor. It is clear from the list enclosed that most laboratories are self-sufficient and some of the facilities developed in past few years are encouraging.

The faculty of this university is getting geared up to consultancy and associated activities. It will take a while primarily because we have paucity of faculty. In addition to the normal teaching of the regular subjects most teachers engage themselves in teaching of the self supporting programmes, which are mostly of interdisciplinary in nature.

We have organized as many as 36 National and International Conferences in the campus during past 3 years. In addition, we have extended training to mid-career scientists through workshops. This clearly establishes that our faculty is well trained and our laboratories are well equipped.

In view of emerging nature and substantial contributions in the subject by our faculty, the University has, this year, established 4 centres for research and teaching namely Virah Mihir Centre for Mathematics, Tansen Institute of Performing Arts, Regional Study Centre for Culture and Heritage and the Neuroscience Centre.

The University is relatively young yet have moderate infrastructure to accommodate all the teaching programmes. In fact, now we have more career oriented self-supporting programmes than the regular ones. Each self-supporting programme has developed almost to the level of individualDepartments. We have difficulties of space still would manage to accommodate various new Departments and Centres.

Media coverage of Jiwaji University, Gwalior Madhya Pradesh, Madhya Pradesh

Jiwaji University result leaked on Internet

The BEd result of Jiwaji University (JU), Gwalior, was posted on Internet even though the university had not declared it officially. The university administration has initiated an inquiry into the leakage. Jiwaji University Vice-Chancellor Professor AK Kapoor said that the private company, which prepared result for JU, uploaded BEd result on Internet. A two-member committee has been formed to inquire into the matter. JU Registrar Anand Mishra also said that the fault lay with the company hired to prepare result and not JU administration. Some BEd candidates on Monday reported that their result has been posted on Internet. Many candidates got printouts of the mark-sheets. When the matter came to the light of JU administration it got the result removed from Internet.

The JU has not officially declared result because a two-judge bench of Gwalior High Court had directed JU to open the result of eligible candidates only. The BEd issue has been haunting JU since 2005 when private BEd colleges admitted candidates who were not eligible for it. Later, under the pressure of media and the Raj Bhawan, the university decided to conduct exam only for the pre-BEd qualified candidates.Private BEd colleges moved the High Court against the JU decision. A single-judge bench of the High Court ordered that only those candidates who were qualified in pre-B Ed exam, had 75 per cent attendance and were resident of Madhya Pradesh should be allowed to appear in examination.

The B Ed colleges approached Supreme Court, which provided interim relief on the basis of which the JU allowed all the concerned students to appear in examination. But later the apex court upheld the High Court order and directed colleges to file petition with the two-judge bench of High Court if they so desired so. B Ed colleges approached the two-judge bench, which also upheld the previous decision of single-judge bench.Following this, the JU has withheld B Ed result and formed a committee to scrutinise the candidates who fulfilled eligibility criteria. The work of scrutiny was still going on when the result was posted on Internet.

The B Ed admissions and exam controversy has been raging for the last one-year and the previous vice-chancellor, Prof Hoshiyar Singh, had resigned over the B Ed muddle.
