double-dagger The Sher-e-Kashmir University of Agricultural Sciences and Technology Act 1982 which established Sher-e-Kashmir University of Agricultural Sciences and Technology was amended in 1999, creating Sher-e-Kashmir University of Agricultural Sciences and Technology of Kashmir (SKUAST-K) and Sher-e-Kashmir University of Agricultural Sciences and Technology of Jammu (SKUAST-J).[3] The UGC lists the original university, with establishment date of 1982, at the original Kashmir location, without listing SKUAST-J in any way. The SKUAST-K website also sees this as a split of SKUAST-J and a rename of the original university.[3] The ICAR lists the original university at the Jammu location, and also lists SKUAST-K separately.
