In Jammu and Kashmir, the internet services will be provided to students who wish to appear for NEET 2020 exam. Interested and eligible candidates can apply and fill up the form by visiting the official website.
Amid the ongoing clampdown on internet in Kashmir Valley, the administration has decided to uplift the curb in parts of Awantipora district to allow students to fill National Eligibility-Cum-Entrance Test (NEET) 2020 online forms. The move will aid scores of medical education aspirants in the region, who were forced to move to the Tourist Reception Centre (TRC) in Srinagar — the only location in the erstwhile J&K state capital where internet could be accessed.
District Police Awantipora says, “Internet facility has been provided to students for filling NEET 2020 forms.”
The announcement also comes nearly a week after the J&K administration announced that government hospitals would be allowed to use broadband internet.
Last year, the internet was blocked all over Kashmir on August 5 following the abrogation of Article 370 and bifurcation of the state into two Union Territories.
Due to the internet shutdown, hundreds of research scholars pursuing PhDs in universities of Kashmir are facing huge losses in their professional and personal lives. They are unable to research literature, communicate with journals amid the internet shutdown.
