The bird has been dedicated to the university by the Marshal of the Indian Airforce Arjan Singh , who formally inaugurated it on 28th March 2008. The MiG was sanctioned in early 2007 and transported from Halwara and installed under the leadership of Sqn Ldr Harjinder Singh Marwaha.

The aircraft has been kept in a pretty good condition with a plastic mesh cover on the exhaust , retaining Tipnis Grey ,roundels and finflashes, the serial has been painted in a different font. The serial is painted on the NLG doors and the tail.Image

 The aircraft is maintained better than the other two MiGs of Kapurthala and has been mounted perfectly.
