SRINAGAR, Jun 1: Fate of around 500 students studying in the Leh and Kargil campuses of the University of Kashmir is all set to be sealed in the coming days as the council meeting of the varsity is going to be held on June 5.
Sources told Early Times that Lieutenant Governor (LG) of Jammu & Kashmir, Girish Chander Murmu who is the Chancellor of University of Kashmir would chair the council meeting on June 5. There are many items on the agenda for the meeting and these include decision about the Leh and Kargil satellite campuses of University of Kashmir. “During the council meeting decision would be taken whether to take over the Leh and Kargil campuses of the University or hand it over to the University of Ladakh formed last year. In case the campuses of the university are handed over to the University of Ladakh then the University of Kashmir needs to be compensated,” said sources.
Sources said that students receiving education at the Kargil campus want the University of Kashmir to continue with the control of the campus and not to hand it over to the University of Ladakh. They said that the response of the students at this campus is very good as compared to the Leh campus.
“Around 400 students are receiving education in the Kargil campus while as the number of students is less than 100. At the Kargil campus courses like integrated B Sc M Sc Botany, integrated BA MA Arabic and integrated B Sc M Sc IT are being taught while as at the Leh campus integrated BA MA English, MA Tourism and M Sc Geology are being taught,” said sources.
Sources said that it would be better for the University of Kashmir to continue with the control of Leh and Kargil campuses since the students are satisfied with the teaching of the teachers employed at both the campuses.
They said that handing over the campuses to University of Ladakh may upset the whole scheme of things of the students.
“If the University of Ladakh wants to have control of the campuses then University of Kashmir needs to be compensated on two fronts. The faculty members at these campuses need to be compensated since they might lose out on jobs and further more the university needs to be compensated on the infrastructure as well,” said sources.
It would be in place to mention here that Leh campus is headed by Rector Professor Farooq Ahmad Mir and Leh campus is headed by Rector Dr. M S Sumbli.
