Maulana Azad varsity to open satellite campus in Srinagar

Monday December 13, 2010 03:17:29 PM, IANS

Srinagar: The Maulana Azad National Urdu University will open its satellite campus in Srinagar and start two women's polytechnic colleges in Jammu and Kashmir, a top official said here Monday.

University vice chancellor Professor Muhammad Mian said the varsity would offer post-graduate courses in commerce, political science, and Islamic studies.

"We would offer master's degree courses in political science, commerce and Islamic studies in the state through our satellite campus to be set up here. We will also offer degree-level courses in commerce, management and tourism," the vice chancellor said.

In a recent controversy here, the state government had placed the Maulana Azad National Urdu University in the list of non-recognised universities.

"The university has a countrywide mandate and the misunderstanding with the state government has been removed. The notification according full recognition to our university has already been issued by the state government."

"As most Urdu-knowing literate people are found in Kashmir, our university has decided to set up a satellite campus here. We are running a satellite campus in Lucknow which is the other most literate Urdu-knowing place in the country," he said.

Nearly 50 percent candidates who qualified the main exams for the state-level combined civil services this year have made it with Urdu as an optional subject in the main exams.

Shah Faesal, a medical doctor from Srinagar who topped the coveted IAS list last year, also had Urdu as one of his optional subjects for the main exams.
