In a statement KUTA said, all the general body members of the Association participated in the function.
KUTA President, Prof Mohid-ud-Din Sangami praised the Vice-Chancellor for his vision and exemplary achievements in education and being a sincere and decent human being.
Prof Talat, he said was scientist of repute, a researcher par excellence and had to his credit lot of achievements such as Fellow of Indian Academy of Sciences Bangalore, JSPS Invitation Fellow of the Japanese government, besides recipient of many awards and scholarships, author of research papers and monographs, adding the vice-chancellor was an expert member of top scientific bodies in and outside the country .
Prof Mohid-ud-Din said the role and responsibility of the Vice-Chancellor goes beyond the contours of the four walls of the institution. He said the Vice-Chancellor was an academic leader in the state and had to lead the entire State so far as educational sector was concerned, especially at a time when the State along with other parts of the country was going to take long strides in higher education, achieving the targeted gross enrolment ratio from 12.50 per cent to 21 per cent, as fixed by the planning commission.
“In J&K, the current GER (10.86 per cent) is below the national average and it has also to be raised to 21 per cent. In such a scenario the Vice-Chancellor has an added responsibility and we have lot of hope from the present Vice-Chancellor that he will be able to achieve the desired goals.”
He said the autonomy of the varsity needs to be protected in the interest of the institution. Prof Mohid-ud-Din said the Vice-Chancellor was expected to take up revolutionary steps for recruitment and selection of all vacant positions, both administrative and teaching, as adequate human resource was the basic requirement for ensuring excellence.
He brought the attention of Prof Talat towards the fact that arrears of 6th pay commission had not been released for last three years.
KUTA secretary, \Dr. Irshad Zia and Vice-President, Dr. Showket Hussain also spoke on the occasion.
Prof Talat Ahmad assured KUTA members of all cooperation to see their demands are through.
