Over 1200 students, both graduates and post-graduates, who have completed their degrees from various streams, were awarded the same in the 12th Convocation of Chitkara University, Punjab campus, at a glittering function in the university auditorium on the campus. The convocation ceremony was divided into three parts so that the degrees could be handed over to the students individually in the presence of the Chancellor of the university, Dr. Ashok Chitkara, by the Vice-Chancellor, Dr. Madhu Chitkara, and the guest of the day.
 
The dignitaries advised the students who were now ready to take on the real world to be successful in their professional life which is going to begin after the university days and said that values, peace in personal life and commitment are the core and in the competitive environment their basics will play crucial role.
 
Dr. Madhu Chitkara, who read out her annual report, spelt out the progress made by the University in the year gone by and how it has grown over the year gone by.
