With an aim to protect the forest in Leh, a plantation drive was organized by EJM College in collaboration with Forest department, Leh on April 7 at EJM college premises.
Dr. Sonam Dawa, CEC, chief guest said that the EJM College is doing well not only in academics but also in co-curricular activities and hope to keep it higher in the days to come. 

“Regarding the late examination, I have taken up with the university authorities and they have assured to conduct exam, hope the students are taking their examination these days. Other problems which principal has noted will be taken up on a priority basis and hope to get it accomplished,” he added.

Mohd Abbas, DFO said, “The resources found in the Himalayan region are unique and special which we cannot find in any other parts. The biodiversity of Ladakh is very rich which needs to be protected and explored by the young generation through field trips. We need to research and explore in order to know our own biodiversity”.
He advised the younger generation to protect the rich biodiversity handed over by our ancestor.

G.S Rakwal, Principal EJM College addressed many problems related to the college. He said that the problem of examination has got resolved but it needs to be taken up to the higher level so that the university examination would be held as per schedule.

He further said that the university does not provide degrees to the passed out students and they have to go Srinagar itself to get it, although they charge 150 per student for the degree, this needs to be taken up with university authorities. The university does not pay remuneration to the official to manage IT center although it is paid in Kargil, despite the university is charging 50 per students for IT fees.

Some sanctioned post lying vacant since from a long time. “We don’t have section officer, shortage of laboratory assistant, library assistant, and orderly. There is only one laboratory assistant to manage six laboratories and there is urgent need to create posts.  The matter needs to be taken up with the education department,” he added.

Symposium on the importance of forest was also held during the program. A total of 14 students participated in the symposium in different languages. 

In the end, prizes were distributed among the position holder in the symposium.
