Persian Language has remained official Language of the Jammu and Kashmir State for about Six Centuries. During this period, it has influenced the Culture, art and the regional languages of the State to a great extend. Due to the literary domain and Scio-cultural significance, the Post-Graduate Department of Persian was established in the Jammu & Kashmir University in 1962 with a view to impart higher Education, protect the cultural heritage and promote the composite culture in the state.
