Dear  Dr. Ashfaq Ahmed Zarri
It gives me great pleasure to extend my warmest congratulations to you on your appointment as Registrar of Baba Ghulam Shah Badshah University(BGSBU). I hope it's not too late to congratulate you and I wish you the best in this new term of office. I trust that you will continue to work for the improvement of BGSBU University and Pir Panjal Region as well. I am sure that under your immense administrative skills, leadership, wisdom and guidance the university will strive to much greater heights. 

Dr Ashfaq Ahmed Zarri

Let me once again reiterate my sincere congratulations on your achievement. I, on behalf of student fraternity in particular and Pir Panjal in general, am very proud of you for setting your sights high, and making every effort for the development of BGSBU as well as the development of off-campus of Kashmir University.

Undoubtedly, you are an eminent scholar and a nature lover. Your work for the conservation of wildlife in the state is unparalleled. Your contributions, especially in the field of ecology in preserving the threatened species of birds in Jammu and Kashmir or for that matter in India are worth appreciation. 

But we all know that, that is not all, about you. Your project on  eco-development which focused on the school children, the bioresource-based training program for the rural women folk was a huge success, when implemented. 

I have been fortunate to have had the chance to work with you on another project of yours titled 'Physical Verification of MNREGA, Indra  Awas Yojana  and Total Sanitation Programme'. It was then only that I realised that, you are indeed an  excellent mentor, a great academician, an intelligent scientist and a distinguished leader with great leadership abilities. This makes me contended that the BGSBU is in the right hands and I am sure your administrative approach and leadership qualities will help the university to climb the new heights of success.

I feel it important for my readers to know that during a small span of time you have also served in various capacities as State Coordinators of IBCN Jammu & Kashmir, Scientist at Centre for Biodiversity Studies, Assistant Registrar of BGSBU before joining as the  Deputy Registrar in the same institution. 

Having said that, I wish to apprise everyone that, your appointment as the Deputy Registrar and subsequently as the Joint Registrar and Director South Campus by Kashmir University was a great feat for a man who hails from Pir Panjal. 

It is also pertinent here to make a mention of the prestigious awards like the 'Chancellor Award of Merit' and the 'Pride of Peer Panjal Award' which were bestowed upon you for the extraordinary contributions in the field of Academics and Research.

In the end, I once again congratulate you on your new assignment and wishing you a grand success ahead. May BGSBU prosper forever.

Yours Sincerely,
Dr Sharaz Ahmed
