The 18th meeting of the Governing Council for Shri Mata Vaishno Devi Gurukul, Charan Paduka, Katra was held at Gurukul Complex here in which a number of important decisions were taken to develop this institution as a Centre of Excellence. It is to be recalled that the Shrine Board had set up this Gurukul in 2010. Dr Bloeria and other Members of the Governing Council emphasised the need for continuing endeavours being made to develop the Gurukul as an institution of excellence.
CEO informed that after students of the Gurukul had procured top positions at the University, Governor NN Vohra, who is Chairman of the Shrine Board, had directed the institution of awards and medals to encourage the outstanding students. Later, the Shrine Board institutionalized the award of Gold Medals for the toppers in Purva Madhyama (10th class) and Uttar Madhyama (12th class) examinations of the Sampurnanand Sanskrit Vishwavidyalaya, to which the Gurukul is affiliated. These medals shall be awarded, for the first time, at the 2016 Convocation of the University.
The Chairman and Members of the Governing Council inspected the ongoing work on the construction of Phase-II of the Gurukul. The Shrine Board has decided to upgrade the Gurukul by making arrangements for Shastri Course i.e. Graduation level, for which the classes will be started in the 2017-18 Session.
For this purpose, a Hostel Block for students and Acharya Block for the Faculty, temple and a Yagyashalla are being constructed. Dr. Bloeria stressed on the CEO to ensure time-bound completion of the ongoing Phase-II construction of the Gurukul and putting in place the required infrastructure to meet the needs of the future intake of students for the “Shastri” course.
