Liaison Officers to be positioned in 10 major cities to coordinate issues of JK students

JAMMU: The State Administrative Council (SAC) which met here today under the chairmanship of Governor Shri Satya Pal Malik approved positioning of designated Liaison Officers of J&K State Government in the cities of New Delhi, Noida/Meerut, Chandigarh, Aligarh, Bhopal, Pune, Hyderabad, Bengaluru, Chennai and Jaipur to coordinate with students of the State pursuing higher education in other parts of the country, whenever they are faced with the situations or incidents related to their regional identity.

Around 20,000 students of the State are pursuing higher studies in various colleges in other states. This year around 3820 students got admission to various undergraduate courses. Since 2012, J&K students have also availed opportunities to obtain admission in outside state colleges to undergraduate course under the Prime Ministers Special Scholarship Scheme (PMSSS).

The Liaison Officers positioned in these major cities will report directly to the Resident Commissioner, J&K at New Delhi and coordinate with him and the State Government regarding issues faced by students of J&K. The Higher Education Department will be overall coordinating Department in the State Government.

Each location will have a ‘Help Center’, a temporary office with basic facilities including telephone/internet. The details about the ‘Help Centers’ will be widely published. Student’s wherever necessary would also be engaged as Assistant Liaison Officers, on a stipend/honorarium.

Positioning Liaison Officers in major cities where concentration of J&K Students is higher will give the students greater sense of safety and security as they can easily contact the Liaison Officer in case of any apprehensions or trouble. This would also remove apprehensions among the intending students who wish to study in outside state colleges and encourage them to move out of state for higher studies and better pursuits.
