Jauhar University granted minority educational institution status

By TCN News

New Delhi: In an order passed on Tuesday by National Commission for Minority Educational Institutions (NCMEI) has granted the minority status to Mohammad Ali Jauhar University, Rampur.

“We find and hold that the Mohammad Ali Jauhar University, Rampur is a minority educational Institution within the meaning of Section 2(g) of the National Commission for Minority Educational Institutions Act,” read the judgment passed yesterday. NCMEI has the jurisdiction to grant the minority status to any educational institute in any part of India.

Jauhar University was established in 2006 by Samajwadi Party leader Azam Khan in 2006. University has ran into many controversies including Azam Khan’s appointment of himself as lifelong chancellor of the university and land acquisition.

University is now a private university recognized by the University Grants Commission. Granting of minority educational institutions should help Jauhar University become a proper university.
