Dr, Balwant Singh Dhillon taking charge of Centre on Studies in Sri Guru Granth Sahib from Jathdaar Akal Takht Giani Gurbachan Singh at Guru Nanak Dev University, Amritsar.

Prof. Brar while speaking on this occasion said that this Centre would start functioning from today onwards, while its formal inauguration would be done shortly by Prime Minister of India, Dr. Manmohan Singh. When the Centre becomes fully functional, he hoped, it would be a befitting tribute to the living memory and the vision of Sri Guru Granth Sahib.

While talking about the functioning of this Centre, he said that overall there would be one Director, six Professors, six visiting Professors, eighteen Project Fellows/JRFs in the Centre to carry on the academic work. Besides, there would be technical and supporting staff to manage the library and museum.

  Prof. Brar said that the Centre would have 6 Divisions i.e. Division for Studies on Interfaith Understanding, Division for Scriptural Studies, Division for Studies on Musicology, Division for Hermeneutic & Linguistic Studies, Division for Social and Cultural Studies and Division for Scriptural Translations.

He said not only the recent trends in the fields of humanities and social sciences even insights from the fields of fundamental sciences would be incorporated. He said to conduct research and avoid duplicity; the Centre would work in close rapport with the universities where research work on Sri Guru Granth Sahib is being done.
While detailing more, Vice-Chancellor said that the eminent scholars who have done commendable work on Sri Guru Granth Sahib would be appointed as visiting professors and research fellows on term based projects. He said the senior scholars who can not come to join the Centre would be offered off campus fellowships to complete the research projects assigned to them.
