CUK’s establishment in Gbl will be highly beneficial for locals: Chancellor
Ganderbal, Dec 8: Highlighting the advantages of setting up of the Central University of Kashmir (CUK) here, the varsity Chancellor, Dr. Srikumar Banerjee Monday said the University would prove highly beneficial, for the local populace on different counts, and the students’ community in particular, in years ahead.
“The University will not only provide the best academic environment in the district, but will also provide other avenues to the locals,” Dr. Banerjee said while interacting with the group of people after reviewing the progress of works on the pre-engineering buildings, taken up by the varsity.
CUK officiating Vice-Chancellor, Prof. Mehraj-udDin, Registrar, Prof. M Afzal Zargar, Controller of Examinations/Finance Officer, Dr. N A Gilkar and other senior administrative officials were also present.
