JNU bags 'Best University Award' from President

Jawarharlal Nehru University (JNU) has won the third “Visitor’s Award” for the best central university in India this year. The Visitor’s Award is presented every year by the President to the best central university in India. Pranab Mukherjee, the President of India, will give up the third “Visitor’s Award” to M Jagadesh Kumar, Vice-Chancellor, JNU on Monday, March 6, 2017.

M. Jagadesh Kumar, Vice Chancellor of JNU, expressed his appreciation to the hard work put forwarded by the students and faculty in bagging the award. The Vice Chancellor said in a statement that it is an occasion of happiness for the JNU community. He credited the award to all the students, faculty and staff and their rigorous efforts to make it happen.

Regardless of all the depressing news that JNUhas witnessed in the past few years, it decisively is one of the exceptionally best Universities in the country. The University has managed to build up its stature as the leading University.

He said that he has faith and conviction in the entire JNU community that in future the University will reach greater heights and will be showered with many more awards and acknowledgement.

These awards were started in the year 2015to encourage healthy competition between Universities.In 2015,the “Best University" award was given to Hyderabad Central University

These awardsare given to the top most institutions in the country. This is the third edition of the awards. This year nine of the best central universities in the country, including Banaras Hindu University (BHU) , Jamia Millia Islamia , Central University of Rajasthan and Aligarh Muslim University (AMU) were nominated in the best university category.

The award was given to JNU after judging all the universities on a number of parameters such as university ranking, student faculty ratio, patents filed and research output.

Dr Deepak Pant, Himachal University has bagged the Visitor’s Award for Innovation while Professor Shyam Sundar, BHU and Professor Niranjan Karak, Tezpur University have together won the award for Research. Last year, Rakesh Bhatnagar, JNU professor, won the award for Research and Innovation.

The award deciding panel comprised of University Grants Commission (UGC) Chairman, Director General of Council of Scientific and Industrial Research and Secretaries of Department of Higher Education and Department of Science & Technology and was headed by Omita Paul, Secretary to the President of India.

The University has managed to bag the award despite of the "anti-national" slogans raised in the campus last year or the disappearance of a student named Najeeb Ahmed on October 15. The acknowledgment is major as it comes just a year later the agitating controversy took place where people including a BJP MP called the university as a center of treachery.

Around the same time last year, JNU was at the centre of incitement to rebellion following a campus event last on executed Parliament attack convict Afzal Guru. Because of the concentrated effort that followed Kanhayia Kumar, students’ Union President was taken into custody.
