Cabinet approves setting up a central university in Ladakh

As a result of the new institution, regional imbalances will be corrected. The quality of higher education in the Union Territory will increase, as both Jammu and Kashmir currently have only one central university. According to the minister, the jurisdiction of this university will extend to the areas of Leh and Kargil. According to expectations, two revisions to the Central Universities Act, 2009, would be introduced by the Ministry of Education.

Key Summary

  • Cabinet approves the establishment of a central university in Ladakh at the cost of Rs 750 crore.
  • The jurisdiction of this university will cover the regions of Leh and Kargil.
  • The Education Ministry is expected to bring two amendments to the Central Universities Act, 2009 for this purpose.
  • The government has identified 110 acres of land near village Khaltsi, located between Leh and Kargil, officials say.

On Thursday, the Union Cabinet approved the establishment in Ladakh of a central university at the cost of Rs 750 crore, according to the Minister of Information and Broadcasting Anurag Thakur. They spoke to the media after the meeting.

He claims that the new institution will help redress regional imbalances and improve the overall quality of higher education in the Union Territory, which now has only one central university in Jammu and Kashmir. In addition to the regions of Leh and Kargil, this institution will have authority over the entire Himalayan region.

To accomplish this, the Education Ministry is likely to introduce two revisions to the Central Universities Act, 2009, which is currently in effect. Following reliable sources, the amended Bill will be submitted in Parliament the following week. “If Parliament approves the new Act during this session, the university will be operational as of the date of notification of the amended Act. According to a ministry official, the process should be completed by the end of next month.

The government has identified 110 acres of land in the village of Khaltsi, which is located between Leh and Kargil, for use as a military training facility. “The location of the university has been chosen in such a way that both Leh and Kargil will benefit from this institution,” said a ministry official, who also stated that the name of the university would be selected soon.

Following Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s announcement during his Independence Day speech last year, the Union Cabinet took the decision.

According to Education Minister Dharmendra Pradhan, the central university in Ladakh will help ignite the intellectual prowess of the local youth, facilitate the creation of a knowledge-based society, and promote overall growth and development of the Ladakh, Leh, and Kargil regions. The central university is being built at the cost of Rs. 750 crore.

On Thursday, the Cabinet also approved the establishment of an integrated multi-purpose company in Ladakh. In Ladakh, this organization would be responsible for developing industries, tourism, transportation services, marketing of local products and crafts, among other things.” According to Thakur, the organization will also assist with infrastructure development and serve as the Ladakh principal infrastructure construction agency.

According to him, it would be established under the Companies Act with an authorized share capital of Rs 25 crore, which also stated that the corporation’s annual outlay would be Rs 2.42 crore. According to the minister, the corporation will be responsible for driving development initiatives in the region and creating job possibilities.
