Amritsar, October 7

The Central government is planning various programmes at the global-level dedicated to the 550th birth anniversary of Guru Nanak scheduled in November.

Union HRD Minister Ramesh Pokhriyal ‘Nishank’, who was here to preside over the groundbreaking ceremony of the IIM, Amritsar’s permanent campus, said a Rs 482-crore Sarva Dharma Study and Research Centre had been proposed to set up at Guru Nanak Dev University, Amritsar.

Besides this, two chairs in the name of Guru Nanak Dev — one at Birmingham University in the UK and Cancordia University in Canada — would be set up to spread Guru Nanak’s message of universal brotherhood, harmony and peace globally.

“The detailed project report of the proposed Sarva Dharma Study Centre has been finalised and the government takes it as a mission to execute it. It is in the pipeline awaiting official formalities which would be furnished on priority. This centre would cater to conduct study on Guru’s bani as a mission to spread it worldwide,” he said.

The HRD minister said the Central government had chalked out a year-long programmes to mark Guru Nanak’s birth anniversary. “Under the guidance of Union Minister Harsimrat Kaur Badal, modalities are being worked out to chalk out programmes that could be held in India and overseas. Lately, the National Book Trust India has translated Guru Nanak’s bani in various languages. This multi-lingual transcript would be sent to various parts of the country to apprise the people about the Guru’s teachings and principles.

He said that at least Rs 1,000 crore had been kept reserved for making Amritsar a Smart City. Similarly, the post-graduate horticulture research centre is also on the agenda of the Central government. Meanwhile, MP Gurjeet Singh Aujla also proposed the HRD minister to give the central status to the GNDU.
