Principal's Message

“Education is not the learning of facts, but the training of the mind to think.”

My Dear Students,

Welcome to the website of GDC, Kalakote (Rajouri), J&K.

As you search the site, you will get exposed to host of academic programmes and campus life, that GDC, Kalakote is offering to its stakeholders.

As Principal of the College, I feel honoured and privileged to be part of an educational Institute where every stakeholder is a learners and everyday is an opportunity to learn and discover new things. We treat ourselves as community of learners including our teachers, parents and non-teaching staff and we all get an opportunity to learn, imbibe and impart.

The responsibility of an Institution besides learning is to focus on co-curricular and extra-curricular activities so as to ensure overall development of the students. By education we mean physical, mental, moral and social development of students, which cannot be limited to schools and colleges only but is a lifelong process. This College is oriented to total formation of a student’s future and to adaptations of modern methods suiting the dynamics of changing world in order to achieve common goals and objectives. It is further characterized by shared vision and responsibility coupled with faith in God to achieve the desired goals and objectives.

Government Degree College, Kalakote came into existence in 2011. The construction work of the College building is in progress on a piece of land measuring 38 kanals and 19 marlas. Presently the College is offering Arts Stream with certain subject combinations. The Institution is recognized by UGC under 2(F) and is affiliated with the University of Jammu. The construction work on new building is in progress and once the Institution takes over the building, new Streams will be introduced with a variety of subject combinations having job prospects to benefit the student community.

Dear students, youth is the asset of Nation. Destiny of a nation depends upon health, intellect and upright youth. I would like to quote Dr.A.P.J. Adbul Kalam, “Courage to think different, courage to invent, courage to discover the impossible, courage to travel into an unexplored path, courage to share knowledge, courage to remove pain, courage to reach the unreached, courage to combat problems and succeed, are the unique qualities of youth.”

Dear students, my message to you is that all the people of fine character live by their values. They are honest and are committed to truthfulness in thoughts, words and deeds. True character, thus encompasses the capacity of self-discipline. What you are is God’s gift to you, what you become is your gift to God.
Focus on your goals and bring out the best in you.

With warm wishes and God’s blessings.


Prof. (Dr.) Romesh Kumar Gupta
