Having made his mark in the Punjab, Jagmohan was soon picked up for a special assignment in Delhi. Thereafter, he never looked back, winning accolades for every task handled by him. He unfailingly spent seven to eight hours every day in the India International Centre Library, reading and taking notes. — NN Vohra, Ex-Governor, J&K

“Widely known and acclaimed for his work as the J&K Governor, Jagmohan began his career in Civil Services in Punjab in the early 1950s, some years ahead of me. Having made his mark in Punjab, he was soon picked up for a special assignment in Delhi, at that time administered by a Chief Commissioner. Thereafter, he never looked back, winning accolades for every task handled by him,” said Vohra.

Vohra added that besides his gubernatorial stint in Jammu and Kashmir, Jagmohan also served as the Union Minister for Culture and did pioneering work to resurrect the archeological wealth of India.

“Till he took ill in 2019, he unfailingly spent seven to eight hours every day in the India International Centre Library, reading and taking notes. He wrote several books. I shall remember Jagmohan as a simple, humble, soft-spoken, wise and extremely courteous person. Pray for eternal peace to the departed soul,” said IIC president NN Vohra, in remembrance of Jagmohan, who served as the Lieutenant Governor of Delhi and the Governor of Jammu and Kashmir twice from 1984 to 1989 and again from January to May 1990.
