According to Sudhir Kumar Sopory, VC, JNU, recognition to the course for LBSNAA is similar in nature to the recognition that the university grants to various courses run by other top institutions such as Council of Scientific and Industrial Research, Indian Military Academy or National Institute of Immunology.
“After a thorough consultation and auditing of the course content the university granted its recognition to the two-year course for IAS trainees,” Sopory said. “Though the course will be conducted in LBSNAA, there will be experts from JNU as well and there will be an academic audit of the course over a period of two to three years. JNU has a pan India presence in terms of recognising courses of premier institutes in diverse areas and this is a part of that.”
All officers coming out of academies such as NDA are also awarded JNU degrees. Bupinder Zutshi, registrar, JNU, said this will be the first course for IAS trainees. “This course is only for IAS trainees and not for allied services. Just like a JNU degree, it will have 64 credit courses.”
The recognition of the degree, to be conducted by LBSNAA, was granted by the executive council last week and LBSNAA will be able to start the course from the next session for the new batch.
