Ever Since my joining the Directorate as Coordinator, I had a dream of taking the Directorate to new heights by making a mark at National/International Level. The first step towards this was accomplished when our Pencak Silat team (Men/Women) clinched 11 medals at recently held “All India Inter University Pencak Silat Championship 2018-19 at GND University Amritsar, Punjab. It was a memorable day in the history of the Directorate as it was for the first time that Directorate has won such a huge tally of medals in a single event at All India level.
Established the year 1948, the Directorate of Physical Education & Sports strives to inculcate qualities/skills required to develop sports persons and Physical Education professionals who would be recognized at National/International level. I am working on the mission to provide board spectrum of Sports, recreation and leisure activities not only for students but for faculty and non-teaching staff as well. The renovation of Kashmir University Sports grounds is on cards and I have a vision to transform these into Sports stadiums of International standard with all the latest facilities like Pavilion/Dug out, digital Score boards, flood lights, synthetic turfs for football, hockey and athletics. With the sports hostel being made functional we are planning to host Inter University events and conduct residential camps for boys and girls so that our performance at National level is improved. With the support of my team at Directorate, I am sure that our Directorate will have National/International recognition.
