Earlier, the J&K Government constituted a high level committee of academicians to prepare a uniform Academic Calendar in sync with the National Academic Calendar (NAC) for all the Universities and Higher Education Institutions of J&K UT.
The initiative was taken days after the government decided to fully implement the National Education Policy (NEP)-2020 from the current academic session and shift to a uniform academic calendar which will be synchronised to the National Academic Calendar.
