A group of around 40 media students from Jammu and Kashmir left for New Delhi on Tuesday to join the Golden Jubilee celebrations of the Press Council of India on Thursday. They are accompanied by the faculty members of the respective media institutions.

The tour is being organised by the Department of Information & Public Relations (DIPR) to provide a platform to the media students from the state to interact with participants from across the world including World Association of Press Councils, Press Associations, Media Councils and the Media Professionals.

According to PCI, the deliberations this year are centered around the theme ‘Challenges before the Media’.

Pertinently, the National Awards for Excellence in Journalism would be also conferred at the event.

Of late, DIPR has initiated various measures to create professional avenues for J&K’s media students, both within and outside the State, and also help sharpen their core skills for the emerging job market.
