MHRD recognises JGU as institution of eminence

The O P Jindal Global University (JGU) has been recognised as an 'Institution of Eminence' by the Ministry of Human Resource Development, Government of India and has entered into a select list of top 10 private institutions in the country, which will be freed from regulatory control and given full autonomy.

On achieving this milestone, the Founding Chancellor and benefactor of JGU, Naveen Jindal said, "I am immensely pleased with the recognition of JGU as an Institution of Eminence. I would like to thank the Ministry of Human Resource Development, Government of India for recognising our efforts to provide world class education in India. Our commitment to excellence is deeply embedded in the vision and mission of our university. The recognition of JGU as an IoE in a decade of its existence is a tribute to the outstanding contribution of its faculty, students and staff. This will create new opportunities for expanding the university while breaking new grounds in promoting excellence and innovation in institution building."

Professor (Dr) C Raj Kumar, Founding Vice Chancellor of JGU said, "This is a red letter day for JGU and is truly remarkable that the recognition of JGU as an 'Institution of Eminence' has come during our 10th anniversary celebrations. Our entire university community is strongly committed to achieving the IOE mandates and targets, and to meet the overall goal of JGU being ranked a top global university. Reacting to this development, Registrar, JGU, Prof. Y.S.R. Murthy said, "This is a historic recognition for JGU and congratulations to all members of the JGU Community. These recent recognitions will spur us to work harder and aim higher. I wish to thank our academic partners for their collaborations with JGU and for undertaking a series of mutually-beneficial academic activities."
