Union Minister Dr Jitendra Singh said today that with different kind of higher education institutions coming up within close vicinity of each other and catering to diverse specializations and streams of academics, Jammu has the potential to emerge as a distinct Integrated Education Model, which can also be emulated in other parts of the country. 

Speaking as chief guest, during the signing of Multipartite MoU among AIIMS Jammu, IIT Jammu, IIM Jammu and University of Jammu here, the Minister described it as a landmark occasion which is indeed the “Rise of a Rare Quaternary” bringing together Medical Science, Engineering Technology, Management Skills and Varied Specialised Disciplines on the same platform. He said, this is a unique and perhaps a rare model of its kind, which has the capacity to be developed and extended further. 

Dr Jitendra Singh suggested that the coming together of the four education institutions of Jammu should pave the way for wider coordination through similar coordination with other remaining institutions like the Central University Jammu which has North India’s first Space Technology/ISRO teaching department, Government Medical College Jammu, Indian Institute of Integrative Medicine (IIIM) Jammu which is today India’s leading research centre in aromatic and herbal products as well as medicines, North India’s first Biotech Park at Kathua catering to research, revenue and livelihood, Indian Institute of Mass Communication Jammu which has the capacity to contribute the digital communication components, so on and so forth.
