Guwahati: Assam University, Silchar, and the Directorate of Sainik Welfare Assam have joined hands to sign a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) on Tuesday to grant graduation degrees to eligible Ex-Servicemen.
The MoU signing ceremony was graced by Dr. Pradosh Kiran Nath, Registrar of Assam University, and Brigadier Dinesh Chandra Mazumdar (Retd), Director of the Directorate of Sainik Welfare, Assam. Honorable Chancellor Air Chief Marshal Arup Raha, PVSM, AVSM, VM, ADC (Retd), and Prof. Rajive Mohan Pant, Vice Chancellor, were also present at the event.
The partnership between Assam University and the Directorate of Sainik Welfare aims to empower Ex-Servicemen who devoted a substantial portion of their youth to duty, often missing out on acquiring civilian education.
The Armed Forces nurture highly disciplined and competitive professionals by imparting training in various disciplines, fostering their confidence and leadership qualities. Ex-Servicemen are proficient in modern technology and administration.
