Srinagar- The Vice Chancellor for University of Kashmir (KU) Saturday said that it will announce the winter vacations for a short time and as per the need.
Speaking to a local news agency KNO on the sidelines of an event, KUs Vice Chancellor, Prof Nilofar Khan said that the mechanism of working and functioning of Universities is different from the schools.
“We cannot keep it at par with the mechanisms or system of school level,” she said.
Nilofar said, “Keeping in view the availability of infrastructure and as per our need, we will announce a short period winter vacations.”
“However, the examination already slated by the university will be conducted on time and wherever required, the teaching faculty will also continue the academics,” she said.
On asking about the measures taken by the university regarding the recent sexual harassment cases, the VC said, “In every institution, there is a ruling of Supreme Court that it shall have a internal compliance committee. I am sure that the administrators must have taken a call and cognizance of it.”
