Around 20 per cent post graduate seats in the University of Kashmir (Indian administered Kashmir) could be reserved for students from Pakistan administered Kashmir, if the government agrees to, Vice Chancellor of the Varsity, Professor Abdul Wahid Qureshi said.

Reacting to the statement of PaK Prime Minister Sardar Attique Ahmad Khan in which he proposed to send the students from PaK to the universities in Indian administered Kashmir, Qureshi said he will be happy 'to receive students from that side'.

Khan had also proposed to give jobs to the unemployed doctors and engineers from Indian administered Kashmir to make it a mutual beneficial programme. Kashmir Newz downloaded content

Neither the government of India nor the government in Indian administered Kashmir has reacted to the Pak premierís proposal.

Professor Qureshi said that it will be a nice way to bridge the gaps between the two sides.

"Kashmir University is open for students from all over the world and we are continuing to upgrade the infrastructure to match it with other world class universities," he said.

Dwelling on the plans to expand intake capacity of Kashmir University Qureishi said, "we are constructing two satellite campuses of our university at District Anantnag and District Baramulla and the third campus at Leh district".

Prof Qureshi said these steps along with the starting of PG courses in other colleges have helped to increase the intake capacity by about 30 per cent.

The University also hopes to add new courses like Degree in Information Technology, Nanotechnology and Wildlife management in the near future.
