The new facility will help the students fill their examination forms and entrance forms for exams like UGC-NET, GATE and Mains-IIT.
Pulwama: An internet facility has been set up by the Jammu and Kashmir administration at the deputy commissioner office in Pulwama for the students of Pulwama and Shopian region following the inconvenience the students faced during the restriction time.
Jammu and Kashmir are under restrictions after the government announced its decision on Article 370. Rajya Sabha on August 5 cleared the resolution to scrap Article 370 with two-thirds majority, along with another Bill to bifurcate the state of Jammu and Kashmir to two union territories – Jammu and Kashmir and Ladakh.
The students crowded the internet facilitation centre to fill their examination forms and entrance forms for exams like UGC-NET, GATE and Mains-IIT. The students can also check their results too from the centre.
Additional deputy commissioner Muhammad Ashraf Hakkak said, "Our office has provided internet facility for students so that they can fill their admission forms and exam forms or download their admit cards so that their precious time is not lost."
Students who were present at the centre praised the administration's move. One among the students named Milad Mehmood said, "I am applying for JEE Mains as broadband services and internet services are not available here. It's a good move especially in such conditions in Kashmir."
Now, students can comfortably fill their examinations forms or check results, said another glad user at the centre, Rayees Ahmed.
