Union Minister Dr Jitendra Singh today said that Jammu is fast emerging as North India’s Education Hub. “This has been possible because of personal intervention and indulgence of Prime Minister Narendra Modi and high prioritisation given by him to Jammu & Kashmir as also to Northeast and Ladakh”, he said.

Speaking at a function to mark the 5-Year Journey of IIM, Jammu, the Minister said, the Institute has made a mark in a very short span of time and that too despite the crippling effects of COVID in the last two years.

He said that the IIM Jammu is one of the major achievements of the Modi Government in the education sector in Jammu & Kashmir and is catering to all sections of society, be it region wise or gender wise or otherwise.

Dr Jitendra Singh said that Jammu has emerged as a pioneer Education Hub, where students from neighbouring States like Himachal Pradesh, Punjab are seeking academic openings and prospects. He said today Jammu can boast of having premier institutes in India like Indian Institute of Technology, Indian Institute of Mass Communication, AIIMS, upgraded Indian Institute of Integrative Medicine, National Institute of High Altitude Medicine at Bhaderwah, Industrial Biotech Park at Kathua, Noth India’s first Space Centre at Central University Jammu among others.
