Government Degree College Banihal, affiliated with the University of Jammu, was sanctioned in December 2007 under the Prime Minister's Reconstruction Plan (PMRP) and started its academic functioning from May 6, 2008. Spread over an area of 8.6 acres, the college is located in foothills of Pir-Panjal range surrounded by mighty snow-capped mountains. Presently, the college comprises of two blocks - one, Academic block where the regular classwork, practical work and administrative infrastructure is being set up and, the other, Administrative block which is under construction.
I am honoured and privileged to have this opportunity to lead the Government Degree College Banihal, one of the premier Institutes of Higher Education in the Union Territory of Jammu and Kashmir. The college was created to meet out the demands of the local community, and ever since its inception in 2008, it has grown and shown a tremendous commitment to education and innovation and towards serving the needs of the region and the UT as a whole. I envisage delivering the leadership with highest degree of honesty, integrity, resilience and perseverance.
