Haryana has so many prestigious educational institutes and colleges across the state that specialises in various programmes. The Haryana Government, who is aggressive on improving the infrastructure of education and employment system for one and all across the state is now looking forward to getting associated with the Panjab University (PU).
6 Haryana colleges seeking affiliation from Panjab University
Over 6 colleges of Haryana including four from Panchkula and two from Ambala are now seeking affiliation from Panjab University in Chandigarh. The Haryana’s Education Department will now write a proposal to the PU to agree on giving away affiliation to these 6 colleges located in the two cities of the state.
Not only this, the Haryana Education Department is also ready to contribute 5% as a grant to the Panjab University, which will come out to Rs 25 crore, annually. After more than four decades the Haryana government is again eyeing affiliation from Panjab University (PU) for a few colleges in the state.
Previously, about four decades ago, both Punjab and Haryana shared the grant of the Panjab University which got discontinued in the year 1976. Last year, one of the Panchkula’s MLA had written to the Haryana CM about getting the affiliation from Panjab University for its colleges in Panchkula and Ambala.
Benefits of Haryana colleges getting affiliated to PU
The reason why Haryana Government wants to get the affiliation from Panjab University is that the reputation of the varsity that will attract more and more students to the colleges. Many students do not wish to seek admissions in the colleges of Panchkula and Ambala due to its affiliation to the Kurukshetra University (KU). Also, it will be easier for the students residing at far off places, who want to study at PU affiliated colleges in Chandigarh. If the colleges near their area will be affiliated to the Panjab University will lessen the burden of computation for students as well as for the colleges situated in Chandigarh.
The meeting regarding the affiliation has already been held between the PU and the Haryana Education Department. For further discussion, a meeting with Haryana principal secretary for education is scheduled on or before July 11.
