Kashmir Government Polytechnic College - KGPC Srinagar - KGPC

Kashmir Government Polytechnic came into existence in the year 1958 and was temporarily functioning in the barracks of Naseem Bagh, Kashmir University campus, initially training in three disciplines viz. Civil, Electrical and Mechanical Engineering. In the year 1962, the institute was shifted to the present campus at Gogjibagh. The institute was temporarily closed in the year 1969-70 due to some reasons and was later revived in the year 1972. The discipline of automobile engineering was added on the revival of the institute. It was later upgraded to the pi diploma level in the year 1986, when diploma courses in Electronics & Communication and two Post Diploma courses viz, Post Diploma in Rural Technology & Management and Post Diploma in Computer Science were also introduced. The institute is spread over an area of 14.875 acres of land. The Polytechnic is situated at Gogji Bagh, which is 1.5 km from Lal Chowk - the main city center of Srinagar, the summer capital of the Jammu & Kashmir State. The Institute can be accessed by road, rail or air. The nearest railhead is at Jammu, 297 km away from the Institute. However, the International airport of Srinagar is just 13 km away. The world famous Dal Lake is at a distance of 3 km from the institute. Being one of the the oldest in the valley, this institute was well-equipped with workshops, laboratories and a rich library. The floods of September 2014 caused a heavy damage to the infrastructure, as the institute was completely inundated with waters rising to levels of more than 18 ft. It has a housing of 15 building blocks including an auditorium, and students hostel, which also suffered a huge damage because of the floods. The biggest challenge right now is to restore the college to its old glory, and work is currently underway in this regard. The Institute is being headed by Mr S M T Andrabi, who has a total experience of more than 30 years, working at different levels, which includes about 4 years as Joint Director, Technical Education and more than 6 years as Principal in various Polytechnic colleges associated with Technical Education Department, Government of J&K.
