Ludhiana, May 16

Dr Sushil Prabhakar, the Registrar of Guru Angad Dev Veterinary and Animal Sciences University (GADVASU) says by using ‘GADVASU’, which is a short form for the university, is not in line with the spirit of paying respect to the ‘guru’ as the full name of the university is on the Sikh Guru, Guru Angad Dev. He urges to use full name of the university. The University has decided to use its complete name in future.

Prabhakar further said suggestions/complaints have been received from several intellectuals, academicians, bureaucrats and politicians about frequently calling the university by abbreviated name as ‘GADVASU’. Even this term is used in the local language also. He said it sounded awkward and was not in line with the spirit of paying respect to the ‘guru’. He said the University name should be addressed appropriately as best as possible.

The abbreviation ‘GADVASU’ can be used in English documents but in Punjabi, Hindi or any other regional language should never be used.
