    Guru Granth Sahib University


    Guru Granth Sahib University<small>NEWS REPORTS</small>

    <!-- <small>December 16th, 2009</small>-->

    Over a year after its creation was announced, the management of the Guru Granth Sahib World University announced on Wednesday, December 16, 2009, that the institution would start functioning from the March 2011 session.


    The Sikh religious university is being set up at Fatehgarh Sahib in Punjab.
    The decision to start the academic session of the university was taken the same day at a meeting of the Guru Granth Sahib Memorial Trust, held under the chairmanship of Punjab Chief Minister Parkash Singh Badal.


    University Vice-chancellor Jasbir Singh Ahluwalia said the construction work of the buildings of the university, which was being funded by the Shiromani Gurudwara Prabandhak Committee (S.G.P.C.), was in full swing and about 80 percent of the work has been completed. He added that the rest of the work would be completed by the end of March 2010.


    The fee structure of the new university has been proposed to be nominal and lower than in the private sector institutions imparting education, Jasbir Singh said.


    The new university would focus on imparting education in most modern technologies such as nano-technology, bio-technology, information technology and business management besides comparative study of different religions.


    The university would also house faculties of schools of emerging technologies, basic sciences, management, social sciences, arts, languages, engineering, architecture, law and social justice.

Since you're here... we have a small favor to ask...

More people are visiting & reading SPN than ever but far fewer are paying to sustain it. Advertising revenues across the online media have fallen fast. So you can see why we need to ask for your help. Donating to SPN's is vote for free speech, for diversity of opinions, for the right of the people to stand up to religious bigotry. Without any affiliation to any organization, this constant struggle takes a lot of hard work to sustain as we entirely depend on the contributions of our esteemed writers/readers. We do it because we believe our perspective matters – because it might well be your perspective, too... Fund our efforts and together we can keep the world informed about the real Sikh Sikhi Sikhism. If everyone who writes or reads our content, who likes it, helps us to pay for it, our future would be much more secure. Every Contribution Matters, Contribute Generously!
