SRINAGAR: The J&K Students’ Association today welcomed the appointment of Dr Nilofar Khan as the new Vice-Chancellor of the University of Kashmir.
In a statement published here, the Association’s National Spokesperson Nasir Khuehami congratulated Professor Khan on her new role and responsibility as Vice Chancellor of the University of Kashmir. The whole association looks forward to working closely with her to improve the education system of the University of Kashmir.
He expressed hope that the new Vice-Chancellor will offer the best of her abilities and experience and take the University to new heights and past glory. There are certain fundamental questions that require an immediate and severe response in order to make J&K’s highest seat of learning a world-class university. Among them, nepotism and favoritism top the list, he added.
Khuehami said students at the university are often frustrated with delayed exams and delayed results. This trend must be changed at the earliest. The university must follow the UGC guidelines on the admissions process in letter and spirit. They should not operate according to the wishes and whims of teachers, but should rather be governed by the law of lock, stock and barrel.
The Association’s additional spokesperson Ummar Jamal hoped that the University should develop a student-friendly atmosphere in the university so that the students will not suffer at any cost. We ask and hope that positive mechanisms for delayed degrees, nepotism, high fees or for that matter anti-student policies will be addressed on merit.
The capacity of Habba Khatoon (HK) Girls Hostel and Rabia Basri (RB) Girls Hostel is only 340 and Mehboob-ul-Alam (MA) Boys Hostel and Maulana Anwar Shah (MAK) Boys Hostel is only 380. He hopes that new hostels will be built inside the campus to increase the accommodation capacity so that students coming from distant countries will not suffer from non-availability of accommodation here in Srinagar city. Students taking 5-year integrated courses like BA.LL.B and IMBA, which are not housed by the university for the entire five years, should be housed from the first year only so that they do not encounter no difficulty. We hope that she will succeed in this position and make the University of Kashmir a leading institution for learning, knowledge and academic excellence, Umar added.
Meanwhile, the J&K Student Association has thanked Lt. Governor Manoj Sinha, Chancellor of Kashmir University, for appointing Professor Nilofar Khan, a distinguished academician with over 30 years of teaching experience. as the first female Vice-Chancellor of the University of Kashmir under Article 12.
