Dr. Tsewang Motup, Principal flagged the absence of any accountant in the College which was making it difficult for the College to frame their proposals.

She also asked the College to nominate some students to be part of the upcoming Himalayan Film Festival being organised by the Department of Information Department & Public Relations where students can benefit from the ‘Master Class’ and ‘In Conversation’ with Producers and Directors.
The students requested for operationalizing College Bus Service and provision of Hostel for the students besides Sports facility. She informed the students that provisions have been made for the students’ hostel, multipurpose indoor stadium as well as staff quarters under SDP.

She assured the College authorities that she will take up the matter with the JK Higher Education Department so that the project will be completed and the building can be handed over to the College.
