The University of Jammu has announced that it has inked a memorandum of understanding with the Indian Army to organize a four-month certificate course in the Bhadarwahi language for its troops in order to develop a better understanding between the force and the local population. The MoU was signed between Col Rajat Parmar, the Commanding Officer of the Army's 4 Rashtriya Rifles, and Rector of Jammu University's Bhadarwah Campus Rahul Gupta.

As per the MoU, the Jammu University's Bhadarwah campus will run a four-month certificate course in Bhadarwahi language for the troops deployed in Jammu region. "The course will be conducted jointly by instructors of the Indian Army and external academicians well versed in Bhadarwahi language," said Aarif Khateeb of Jammu University said, as reported by Republic TV.

While speaking on the occasion, Colonel Parmar said that the collaboration will further strengthen the bond between the Indian Army and the University of Jammu. He further added that the MoU will also help in bridging the gap between the local population and the armed forces.

Gupta further thanked Indian Army for such an initiative to promote Bhadarwahi language. "It is really a big day for the entire Chinab Valley, especially Bhadarwah, as this four-month certificate course will promote Bhadarwahi language and in future efforts will continue to further promote other languages also," he added.
