JAMMU: Jammu and Kashmir Chief Minister Mufti Mohammad Sayeed has emphasized upon reorientation of professional courses offered at state universities as per the demands of ever-expanding job market.

He also asked the Deputy Chief Minister and Minister for Education to explore possibility of getting back the funds for development of off-site campuses of Jammu University from the Ministry of Human Resource Development (MHRD), which lapsed due to non-utilisation.

Mufti Sayeed, who is also the Pro-Chancellor of Jammu University and the head of State's Higher Education Council (SHEC), made these remarks while reviewing the functioning of Jammu University, yesterday.

Asking the Vice Chancellor to activate satellite campuses as vibrant centres of learning, the Chief Minister observed that top private firms will not converge upon J&K for placement of qualified professionals unless we reorient our courses as per the needs and demands of the ever-expanding job market.

Deputy Chief Minister Nirmal Singh, Minister for Education Naeem Akhtar, Advisor to the Chief Minister, Prof Amitabh Mattoo; Chief Secretary B R Sharma, Principal Secretary to the Chief Minister, B B Vyas, and Vice Chancellor of Jammu University Prof R D Sharma attended the meeting.
