Srinagar, Dec 17: The Women’s College Srinagar, which was established in 2008 in the library block of Amar Singh College sans basic facilities causing immense inconvenience to the students.
To reduce load from the Women’s College MA Road, the Women’s College Srinagar was established on makeshift arrangements at Amar Singh College on the directions of then Chief Minister Ghulam Nabi Azad.

In absence of its building, the classes are conducted in the Amar Singh College Library Block. Though few rooms were provided to it in the Amar Singh College premises, they are being used by staffers and Principal.
“According to the UGC norms, the space is not sufficient to accommodate the enrolled students. Due to lack of own building and infrastructure, the college is yet to be recognized by the UGC,” sources said.
“Due to lack of adequate classrooms, students can’t concentrate on lectures..There is just a single washroom for over 800 students,” a group of students said.
Sources said the Government had proposed to establish the college in Zakura Batapura on the city outskirts.
“However, due to some dispute between the Higher Education department and Custodian General, the land has not been handed over to the college,” they said.
When contacted Principal Women College Srinagar, Professor Rifat Geelani played down the issue saying the college has adequate space. “It will be difficult for students of south City areas to travel to Zakura,” she said.
