This decision was taken in a meeting under the chairmanship of Deputy Chief Minister Nirmal Singh to discuss various issues regarding setting up of an Indian Institute of Technology (IIT) in Jammu. Prof Satinder Singh, Principal, GGM Science College, and nodal principal of city colleges, said that the girl students had the option to choose the college from which they wanted to pursue the course. He also said that the Higher Education Department was not going to force the students to seek admission in different colleges against their choice.
Prof Satinder Singh further went on to say that the decision had been taken for the benefit of the students. The higher education department is aware of the fact that the Commerce College lacks space but that is not going to become a limiting point in accommodating those students who want to pursue BCom course from the institution.
