In a statement issued here on Wednesday, President SKUAST-TAJ Dr Vikas Sharma via representation informed the Prime Minister that despite the approval in the Board of Management and University Council in 2005, the proposal of SKUAST-Jammu for much required three more faculties and one division has been made hostage by the State Government to the process of seeking repeated queries from the last 12 years due to lack of funds.
Dr Sharma informed that this formal proposal of SKUAST-Jammu for approval is still awaiting nod of the Agriculture Production and the Planning Department notwithstanding the detailed and point-wise justification of the proposal as well as reply to all the queries with regard to required staff strength and budget estimates for the same.
SKUAST-TAJ requested the Prime Minister to consider the single genuine demand.
