The creation of the Shri Mata Vaishno Devi Shrine Board (SMVDSB), when he was the Jammu & Kashmir Governor, was the biggest achievement of Jagmohan. The board was created in 1986 and the model has been emulated for the management of shrines and temples across India and existing facilities for the devotees and infrastructures were his brainchild and vision.
Shri Mata Vaishno Devi Shrine Board was set up in August 1986 under the provisions of “Jammu and Kashmir Shri Mata Vaishno Devi Shrine Act, 1988 (Act No.XVII of 1988)” which was deemed to have come into force w.e.f. August 30, 1986. (Agencies)
