JMI VC meets Hon’ble Education Minister Shri Dharmendra Pradhan


Jamia Millia Islamia (JMI) Vice Chancellor Prof. Najma Akhtar  recently called on the Hon’ble Union Education Minister Shri Dharmendra Pradhan at his residence. This was the first interaction of the Vice Chancellor with the newly appointed Minister to discuss matters related to the university.


The Vice Chancellor said that she was happy to know that the Hon'ble Minister was well aware of the activities and achievements of the JMI in the recent past and said several encouraging words about the university’s contribution towards teaching and research. He particularly appreciated that JMI improved its position in NIRF and other national & international rankings. He also praised that a JMI faculty has been selected for Visitor’s Award for Research and 7 out of 8 Prime Minister Research Fellowship (PMRF) awardees from the university are girls, which speaks of the significant role the university is playing in empowering girl students.


Prof. Akhtar said that on her request the Hon’ble Minister, who is also the Minister of Skill Development & Entrepreneurship agreed to consider JMI as a ‘hub’ for skill development and entrepreneurship training programmes. These skill development programmes will be designed in consultation with the prospective employers and according to the needs of the market. Learning of foreign language would also be the part of the curriculum to improve the employability prospects of the students in India and abroad.


The Vice Chancellor hoped that under the able leadership and guidance of the Hon’ble Minister, JMI will be able to realize the objectives of the National Education Policy-2020.
