All government schools in the union territory of Jammu and Kashmir will be renamed after martyred soldiers and officers.

All government schools in the union territory of Jammu and Kashmir will be renamed after martyred soldiers and officers of the Indian Army, the Central Reserve Police Force (CRPF), and the J&K Police.

A government notification on renaming J&K schools after martyrs was released last week. It directed deputy commissioners of Jammu, Kathua, Doda, Poonch, Ramban, Samba, Kishtwar, Rajouri, Udhampur, and Reasi to identify government schools in villages/ municipal wards of their respective districts that can be after troopers who have attained “Veergati”.

Officials concerned were further directed to constitute a committee at the district level to prepare such details after due verification. The committee can include representatives of the Indian Army, the SSP, ADC, DPO, or AC Panchayat.

Deputy commissioners were to submit the final list to the Office of the Divisional Commissioner in Jammu by or before August 5.

Earlier this year, the Punjab government had renamed 17 state-run schools after freedom fighters.
