NTA UGC NET admit card: The National Testing Agency (NTA) has accepted the demands of hundreds of students to set up exam centre for the National Eligibility Test (NET) in Srinagar. Students had earlier took to social media to express displeasure and alleged ‘discrimination’ against those hailing from Srinagar as there was no exam centre in the district.
Hundreds of students had allegedly missed the UGC NET December exam as they reportedly failed to reach the Jammu centre – which was the nearest centre for Srinagar based students. This time, the NTA has accepted students demand and set-up a centre in Kashmir. Candidates hailing from the district can download their revised admit cards from the official website, ntanet.nic.in.
