, "I am immensely delighted that JGU has been conferred with the status of an Institution of Eminence. This is an incredible recognition for JGU and is a great tribute to the extraordinary achievements of the university. JGU was established in the memory of my father, Shri O.P. Jindal who believed in education, entrepreneurship, philanthropy and nation-building. Our vision is to produce outstanding leaders who will make a true difference to the communities in which they live. I congratulate the Vice-Chancellor, faculty members, students, parents of our students and the staff of JGU for their hard work, commitment and dedication, which led to this fantastic recognition in a decade since its inception. In our journey towards becoming a world-class university, we will leave no stone unturned and make every effort to enable JGU with resources, academic freedom and autonomy that will help JGU flourish further. I am confident that this will help us achieve the highest standards of institutional excellence on a global platform."
have entered into India's own 'Ivy League' equivalent of top 10 public and top 10 private institutions. Therefore, JGU is exempted from most regulatory controls and has been given full autonomy. When JGU was established in 2009, the goal was very simple: to build a world-class university in India. The fact that we have received this recognition in little over a decade speaks volumes about the extraordinary contributions of the students, faculty members and staff of JGU. It is our aspiration to achieve excellence, while benchmarking JGU with leading institutions around the world. Our founding Chancellor, Mr. Naveen Jindal had set a global benchmark for Indian philanthropy by establishing JGU and enabling it to achieve great heights of excellence in a short span of time and we are grateful to him for his transformative leadership in promoting philanthropy in higher education."
