A Joint-Equivalence Committee, with members both from Jamia and Navy, was constituted for credit determination for
all theoretical and practical components of academic-cum-training programmes in the Indian Navy.

The admission to Jamia courses would be through the Centre for Distance and Open Learning that will lead to awarding of degrees on fulfilment of statutory requirements.

The recommendations of JEC were approved by Vice Chancellor Talat Ahmad, in his office, in the presence of Vice
Admiral AR Karve, Chief of Personnel on Wednesday.

The eligible sailors would now be able to enroll in the programmes from 16 July for academic year 2016-17.

Karve observed that it was a historic moment for the Indian Navy to enter into collaboration with Jamia and
said this MoU would benefit the sailors immensely besides establishing a long term relationship with the university, a statement by the Navy said.

Terming it as a proud moment, Ahmad said the two institutions could work together to mutually benefit both Naval personnel and Jamia students.
