Jagmohan

Shri Jagmohan is certainly one of the topmost civil servants that the Jagmohan country has produced in the post-Independence period. He was the youngest Lt.-Governor of Delhi and the only one who held this prestigious office for two terms. During his second term, the capital had the unique distinction of successfully organising the Asiad, CHOGM and Non-aligned Conference (1982-83). Earlier, he served with great distinction in a number of key assignments, including that of Chief Executive of Delhi Development Authority for over seven years and as Lt.-Governor of Goa, Daman and Diu. 

Shri Jagmohan has also the rare distinction of being nationally honoured twice by the President of India. He was awarded Padma Shri for "making significant contribution to the formulation and implementation of the Delhi Master Plan and for playing a pioneering role in planning and implementation of projects". He was also awarded Padma Bhushan for his "exceptionally meritorious services to the country". 

Shri Jagmohan was also given a cultural award by the Australian Government in 1975. In the mid-sixties, he travelled around the world on a fellowship granted by the Indian Institute of Public Administration, New Delhi. He also attended torso United Nations Conferences on 'Human Settlements' in Tehran and on 'Habitat' in Vancouver. 

Shri Jagmohan's published works include over 50 articles in leading newspapers and journals and three books: Rebuilding Shahjahanabad: The Walled City of Delhi; Island of Truth; and The Challenge of Our Cities

Shri Jagmohan, again, is the only one who has held the office of the Governor, Jammu and Kashmir, twice. He also formulated and carried out the historic reform of 'Mate Vaishno Devi Shrine'. Presently, a Member of Parliament, Shri Jagmohan is a household name in the country.
