Jammu: The Jammu and Kashmir government has launched an official website for the state's School Education Department for better assistance and access to information regarding the education sector.

"We have launched the website of School Education Department at 'www.jkeducation.gov.in' in Jammu and Kashmir for information and assistance to people on the state's education sector," the State Education Ministry officials said.

As per a circular issued by the Ministry, information regarding government orders, seniority lists, circulars and other important official communications has already been made available on the website.

This has been done to prevent officials and general public from making unnecessary visits to the school education department for collecting petty information regarding department orders and circulars, he said.
