Kashmir University Yet To Declare MD, MS Final Examination Result

Srinagar, Oct 11: The students who have appeared in final exam of MD and MS Monday appealed Kashmir University to declare the results without any further delay. They said they fail to understand why results are not being declared when Jammu University has already made it public.

MD, MS students from GMC Srinagar had appeared in final exam some two months ago. SKIMS and Jammu University have already declared the results but Kashmir University as per students is resorting to dilly dally tactics and not declaring the results.

“We believe results are not being declared on the behest of concerned authorities as they want to retain us in the hospitals where we are posted. It is an attempt to deprive us of Senior Resident posts and salaries,” the aggrieved students said.

They said after the declaration of the result, they deserve post of senior resident. “To deprive us from that post and salary, results are not being declared.”

The aspirants appealed Kashmir University to declare the result without any delay.

Unsatisfactory Evaluation Status”, Kashmir University UG Students Aghast, Demand Re-Checking

Srinagar, Sep 25, The undergraduate students of batch-2018 are in anger as evaluation status of 5th semester fails to satisfy them.

According to the students the evaluation status which was made available on 22nd September, has shocked most of them because they have been granted a status of lowest possible grade and ‘re-appear’ only, despite performing well.

While talking Suhail Ahmad a student at a Govt Degree College in South Kashmir said he and majority of his batch mates are failing to qualify the 5th semester examination as per the evaluation status which is ‘quite bizarre’.

The examination for the 5th semester was held in April-May this year in offline mode.

Another student from Bandipora who wished anonymity while talking said that he had done his best in the paper of ‘Sociology’ but unfortunately he is failing in the same subject.

“We had done our best in the examinations, if results stand like this we won’t be eligible to appear in PG entrance tests next year, adding that our academic career will get halted”.

The repeated attempts to contact Controller Examinations, Prof Irshad Nawachoo didn’t materialize .

The evaluation status has put most of the students across Kashmir in distress. As such they have requested the university authorities to re-check their papers at the earliest.

Supreme Court Declines To Entertain Plea Seeking Re-Opening Of Schools, Declines To Entertain Plea Seeking Re-Opening Of Schools

Supreme Court Declines To Entertain Plea Seeking Re-Opening Of Schools, Declines To Entertain Plea Seeking Re-Opening Of Schools

New Delhi , Sept 20: The Supreme Court on Monday declined to entertain a petition filed by class XII students seeking direction to the Centre and states to consider and take a time-bound decision with regard to the physical re-opening of schools and conduct of offline teaching.
A Bench headed by Justice DY Chandrachud said it cannot direct states to reopen schools for physical teaching.

“Complexities of the matter is such that we will have to leave it to the governments. Supreme Court can’t take over governance. Let governments take these decisions,” the Bench said while asking the petitioner’s advocate to withdraw the plea.

As the apex court was not inclined to hear the case petitioner withdrew the plea.
“We do not have scientific data nor knowledge of COVID-19 incidence in the country. The governments are wary of exposing children to possible infection. We cannot be running the administration of governance and decide these issues,” Justice Chandrachud said.

During the hearing, the Bench said it doesn’t know where the COVID-19 spike is, in which district incidence of COVID-19 is high. “Of course, children need to go back to school, but it has to be decided by the states,” said Justice Chandrachud.

The top court added that governments have taken a decision for the phased reopening of schools and these are plans that should be left to the government.

“Courts have to be very careful. There is no data. Schools were opened abroad also, we know what happened. We don’t want to name. Children have also to be vaccinated. You may withdraw this petition,” Justice Chandrachud told advocate Ravi Prakash Mehrotra, appearing for the petitioner student.

Mehrotra contended that because of the prolonged period, the schools were not opened and the mid-day meals, mental health, everything got affected.

Amar Prem Prakash, a class XII student from Delhi, had raised the issue of deprivation and ill-effects, both psychological and actual, of school children being kept away from attending their schools physically and having to join their classes virtually instead.

The petitioner said he is aggrieved by the indecision and vacillation on the part of the Central Government and several State governments and Union Territories in the country, including Delhi, in the matter of re-opening of schools and resumption of physical classes with adequate safeguards.

“If public places can re-open for people who may or may not have been vaccinated, regulated by COVID-19 appropriate behaviour, it merits serious consideration that schools and educational institutions must be given priority in re-opening,” the plea said.
The plea urged that Centre, states and UTs to take time-bound decisions on the re-opening of schools in their territories with adequate safeguard and depending on the condition and severity of COVID-19 in their respective areas.

“A holistic and considered decision with regard to re-opening of the schools will not only end the uncertainty and speculation in this regard but also assuage the sentiments of the students’ community in the country,” stated the petition.

It further sought a hybrid mode of schooling in the States which have decided to re-open educational institutions, with the option of online and offline education, making it optional and non-compulsory for students who do not want to attend a physical school. (Agencies)

As Schools Partially Re-Open, Students Demand March Session Examination

Srinagar, Sep 16: As the educational institutions, including schools have partially re-opened for vaccinated students of higher classes, the students are urging authorities to conduct exams in March so that they can comfortably complete their syllabus.

Students said that they are not prepared for exams which are likely to be held in last week of October, giving the reason that their studies had got affected by lockdown and that they haven’t completed the syllabus.

A group of class 12 students told that their syllabus is incomplete and it will take them at least 3-4 months to complete remaining part of their syllabus and to prepare for their board examination.

“While exams are knocking the door, we haven’t even completed half of the syllabus yet. Online classes didn’t clear the concept, they were of no use. Now as schools have reopened, goverment should allow us to attend physical classes for these months, and should held exams in March, so that our study goes unaffected,” said Falak, a student from Srinagar.

Another student saying same said that it will take them atleast three months to complete the syllabus and goverment notification where they said they are holding exams in October has put them in depression.

“We haven’t been to school this year. The online classes are of no use compared to physical classes. Most part of our syllabus is incomplete, we aren’t prepared, we need time for preparation,” another student said.

While we tried to contact the officials in Jammu and Kashmir Board of School Education, however we failed.

Kashmir University Demands Already “Waived Off” Fee From Students

Kashmir University Demands Already “Waived Off” Fee From Students

Srinagar, Mar 12: University of Kashmir yet again in a strange move has asked students to submit a fee which was waived off back in October 2020 in view of “arduous situation arisen due to Covid-19”.

The demanding of already waived off fee by the university has raised concern among students and has left them in a state of distress.

Few of these students said that the university has come up with a notification asking us to submit the installments of fee which was earlier waived off.

“The LG’s intervention and direction least matters for the authorities at university and they keep on looting the students”, the students said.

Back in 2020 the fee was waived off after a delegation from Kashmir University Students Guild submitted a representation at the office of Lt. Governor Manoj Sinha seeking “waiving off of extra charges and concession in admission fee” on 11-09-2020.

As such the Governor’s office directed the university to look into the matter, to which the university brought up a circular on 07-10-2020 which reads ” in view of arduous situation arisen due to Covid-19, the Vice Chancellor has been pleased that till the matter with regard to relaxation in the admission fee is resolved, only 50 percent of the admission fee prescribed for 3rd and 4th semester of PG programmes be realised from its first installment”.

Meanwhile university Registrar, Dr Nisar Ahmad Mir said, “we have offered a 25% relaxation and the matter is still in consideration with the higher authorities”.

“We’ll look into the matter again on Monday”, he added.

Covid-19 Cases In Kashmir Schools Send Parents Into A Tizzy, We Are Monitoring Situation: Secretary Education Department

Covid-19 Cases In Kashmir Schools Send Parents Into A Tizzy, We Are Monitoring Situation: Secretary Education Department

Srinagar, Mar 04: The surge in covid19 cases in educational institutions over past few days has sent the parents into a tizzy as most of the schools are allegedly not following required precautions.

The schools have allegedly been found violating the basic guidelines on wearing of facemasks, maintaining of social distance, etc. in the school premises. Most of the schools are allegedly allowing gathering of students for morning assembly.

“No concern is shown by schools for the safety of students. The situation is not normal as covid19 positive cases are still being reported,” an official said.

The schools resumed physical mode of education for 9th to 12th classes from March 1.

As already reported, an employee of a government high school in Srinagar, and seven staff members of a leading private school have tested covid19 positive.

In the wake of the covid19 positive cases being reported from schools, the parents have become apprehensive about the safety of their children.

“Either the government should ensure that schools follow covid19 SOPs in letter and spirit or else they should be closed again,” said Muhammad Ayub, a parent from Srinagar.

He suggested that any school found violating the covid19 SOPs be put to task.

Notably, the government had earlier stated that it has prioritized vaccination of teachers in schools. But so far no teacher has been vaccinated.

Administrative secretary, School Education Department, B K Singh said that the government has given clear cut directions to the schools to avoid all such activities in which they could not maintain social distance.

“Although we have opened schools, it doesn’t mean that situation (in regard to covid19) has normalized,” Singh said.
“We cannot keep schools closed forever but at the same time we have to remain guarded and understand that we have to take all precautionary measures as well,” he added.

On the vaccination of the teachers, he said the matter had already been taken up with the J&K administration.

“Everything related to vaccination comes from health ministry of government of India. So everything is not in our hands; but I understand there is a necessity to go for vaccination of all teachers in the schools,” he said, adding that the private schools could have managed antigen tests of teachers. “They have funds available with them and should have done it for the safety of students as well as teachers,” he said.

About the reports of covid19 positive cases in schools he said the government is taking feedback and monitoring the situation. “We are aware about these cases and are keeping a vigil on the situation,” he said.

For No Fault, Career Of 135 Students Of 12th Standard At Stake

For No Fault, Career Of 135 Students Of 12th Standard At Stake

Dozens of students who recently collected the qualified marks sheet of 12th standard said the Board of School Education (BOSE) is asking them to reappear in the exams of those additional backlog subjects that have been promoted last year.

The students told that BOSE was making a mockery of mass promotions that was announced last year for the students having a backlog of more than two subjects and other students having a backlog in their 6th additional subject.

They said that in October-2020, BOSE has issued the qualified marks sheets to 135 students who were having a backlog of additional backlog subjects but recently have cancelled the promotion and have asked them to reappear in the exams.

A student who is facing the same issue told that, “Among the 135 students, most of us have already started preparing for the competitive exams like NEET and JEE but in a strange decision the BOSE is asking to reappear in the exams of the additional backlog subject that was promoted a year back.”

He said that BOSE is not only playing with the career of 135 students but is its credibility on stake.

The students demand revocation of the cancellation orders of mass promotion of having a backlog previously of additional subjects.

Top officials at BOSE told that issuing qualified marks sheets to these students occurred due to some technical glitch.

“There was no provision of mass promotion to the students having backlog in additional subjects and BOSE has accordingly cancelled the mass promotion to those students,” the official said.kno

Covid-19: Uproar After Jammu And Kashmir Government Expresses Intention Of Opening Schools Amid Coronavirus Pandemic

Covid-19: Uproar After Jammu And Kashmir Government Expresses Intention Of Opening Schools Amid Coronavirus Pandemic

 

After backlash, the administration stated that the instructions were issued to only ensure sanitization of school premises in view of Coronavirus and not to open schools.

 

There is widespread resentment in Jammu and Kashmir against the school education department after it recently expressed the government’s ‘intention’ to reopen schools in mid-June amid the covid-19 pandemic.

 

After backlash, the administration stated that the instructions were issued to only ensure sanitization of school premises in view of Covid-19 and not to open schools.

 

Parents of school students in Kashmir are aghast, many say that the decision is not only idiotic but will prove extremely dangerous, putting children’s lives at stake.

 

“What is the logic of opening schools when every day more than 100 people are testing positive for Covid-19. Even the shops and markets are still closed. How can we put the life of our children in risk,” said Ateeqa Begum, 45, mother of three school-going children.

 

“Are the officials okay with making our children soft targets? It seems some officials want to score some points for their own benefits,” she said.

 

On Monday, School Education Department’s Director Finance in a communiqué stated that the ‘government intends to re-open schools in mid of June’ and asked the concerned authorities to ensure all safety measures to arrest the spread of coronavirus among students and teachers.

 

“In this connection, necessary instructions may be circulated to the heads of all government schools to provide a pair of reusable mask and a pair of hand gloves to every student and ensure availability of bulk hand sanitiser and liquid soap dispenser at the entry point of each school,” the communication, directed to directors of school education of Jammu and Kashmir divisions stated.

 

People on social media were also wary of the decision which comes at a time when the number of Covid-19 cases in Jammu and Kashmir has crossed 2,700 and the death toll has reached 33.

 

“Reopening of schools is not as easy as it is made to appear. One thing is clear, parents will never risk the lives of their children by sending them to schools in the middle of the worsening coronavirus crisis, no matter how much “academic loss” it entails or whatever it means,” said Faheem Aslam, a Srinagar resident.

 

“While babus are out with circulars suggesting reopening of Kashmir schools this month, they are mum on explaining the rationale behind rushing through the decision to the anguished parents… Expecting school children to undertake social distancing and follow safety protocols, when top officers and doctors are falling prey to the deadly virus, is nothing but idiocy,” he said.

 

Calls to commissioner secretary education Asgar Samoon and director school education Younis Malik went unanswered. Advisor to Lt Governor, KK Sharma said in a statement said that J&K government has not taken any decision to open schools on June 15. “However instructions have been issued to schools to ensure sanitization of school premises in view of Covid 19,” he said.

 

Dr Jitendra Singh, Minister of State in Prime Minister’s Office, said in a tweet that he has asked the J&K administration to defer the decision of opening schools. “Have spoken to #JammuAndKashmir UT Government and suggested that decisions regarding 1) Vehicle Registeration Tax and 2) Reopening of schools may be deferred,” he tweeted. {HT}
