Degree College was established in 2009 with only one stream(Bachelor of Arts), since then only the college building was upgraded.
The over all population of Gurez is 40 thousand, Gurez is divided into 3 parts(Bagtore, Gurez, Tulail), College is established in Wanpora village of Gurez Valley.
Students from Bagtore and Tulail travel around 40-60 kilometers to reach college for daily classes.
those who choose science or any-other stream except Arts have to move out of Gurez to complete their graduation and further studies.
People of Gurez have been demanding other streams into the college but no one has given ear to their voices.
While Prime Minister is focusing to take India towards Digitization, Students of Degree College Gurez lack all these basic facilities like Library, Canteen, Playground and Internet.
Not just that, College also lacks facilities like machinery equipment, electricity, drinking water and many other things.
also it lacks many subjects in Arts stream such as geography and Mathematics(Compound Arts).
Degree College Gurez is affiliated with Kashmir University.
Gurez Valley remains cut-off for 5-6 months of winter because of the heavy snowfall, Roads remain shut,
and people mostly survive on the saved food items(Rajma, Aaloo, & Dal).
Many Political leaders visited Gurez and made promises to give them proper electricity, good facilities in schools and up-gradation of College.
but the promises very empty and people survived suffering.
Now the question pops is that will government take care of these people who still have hope and call themselves the citizens of the same nation.
