Kashmir: Once again valley students are allotted NET examination centers outside Kashmir despite of having complaint constant number of times.
Kashmiri students have a constant complaint that their examination centres have been set up outside the valley, despite their having preferred local centres at the time of submitting application forms.
Now the National Testing Agency (NTA) has scheduled the National Eligibility Test (NET) between June 20 and 28, but the divisional administration of Kashmir has yet again failed to get the testing agency to set up adequate exam centres for Kashmiri students within the valley.
Apart from the scorching heat wave prevailing outside the valley, and the unpredictable highway which is more often closed than open, many candidates whose examination centres have been designated in Jammu and elsewhere in India say that they cannot even afford to travel outside the valley in the first place.
Candidates complained that they had approached the NTA last year also, “but it seems that the agency is least bothered about the sufferings of Kashmiri students”. The aspirants once again appealed to the NTA to make sure that adequate examination centers were set up in the valley.
