Department of Urdu

The department of Urdu came into existence in the year 1965 as a full-fledged department of the Jammu Division of the erstwhile University of Jammu & Kashmir. At the initial stages of existence, the department was threatened by the non-availability of students and scholars and as such University Council had therefore to allow department to run its classes in the evening. This shift to the evening timing also enhanced the number of the students. With the passage of the time, research gained momentum and in 1972, the first scholar of the department was awarded Ph.D. Prof. Gian Chand Jain, Internationally known scholar of Urdu language was the first Head of the Department and Prof. J.N Azad, latter on glorified this department internationally .
