Meanwhile, the BOSE officials are denying all charges stating that, the ETT institutes have no renewed documents from the Government which would have authorized them to run ETT Courses. The investigation, on the other hand reveals that ETT colleges had neither applied for No Objection Certificates nor their NoC’s were renewed hence their affiliation from the J&K BOSE is a violation of rules by the BOSE officials.
