Early Times Report

SRINAGAR, May 12: University of Kashmir authorities seem to have buckled under pressure from the academia of the varsity as they have ordered for constitution of a committee that would look into the pros and cons of making the varsity motor free.
Assistant Registrar, General Administration, University of Kashmir issued a notice on 10-5-2019 saying that a committee has been formed to look into the issue regarding restrictions of vehicles inside the main campus and make recommendations thereof. The Committee comprises of teaching as well as non-teaching faculty members of the university.
"A committee comprising the following has been constituted to look into the issue regarding restriction of vehicles inside the main campus and make recommendations thereof," writes the Assistant Registrar, General Administration, University of Kashmir in the notice.
Dean Academic Affairs, University of Kashmir would be the chairman of the committee. The committee would comprise of Professor S Mufeed Ahmad, Dean School of Management Studies, Professor Mohammad Hussain, Dean School of Law, Professor Aneesa Shafi, Department of Sociology, Professor Naseer Iqbal, Chief Proctor and Dean Students Welfare, University of Kashmir.
The other members of committee are President, Kashmir University Teachers Association (KUTA), President Kashmir University Officers Association (KUOA) and President Kashmir Kashmir University Ministerial Staff Association (KUMSA). It would also comprise of two research scholars (one male and one female) to be nominated by Dean Research and two class representatives (one male and one female) to be nominated by the Dean Students Welfare.
Sources told Early Times that an association comprising of university teachers has in one way or other way opposed the move of restricting the movement of vehicles in the university campus. They said that it was only after the pressure exerted by this association that the university authorities decided to constitute a committee to look into the issue.
"The move to restrict movement of vehicles at the varsity campus was hailed by one and all. However, this did not go well with the teaching faculty and they made it a point to oppose the same. The university authorities buckled under the pressure and decided to constitute the committee in this regard," said sources.
Sources said that the restriction on the movement of vehicles in the varsity was the first step towards making the campus green and free from automobile pollution. The university had placed battery fitted vehicles and cycles for the officials as well as visitors who intend to use this facility in order to reach respective places.
"The people who were driving cars and other automobiles at the varsity were asked to park the same near the parking space near the Convocation Centre. Similar facilities were also put in place near the two gates of the university and it was expected that the campus of University of Kashmir would be green," said sources.
Sources said that the move to make the varsity green may fall flat since the same has been countered by the teaching faculty. Given this situation there are chances that automobile pollution would rule the roost at University of Kashmir.
