Distance education in JU goes haywire; Jammu migrants, KPs denied admission
8/31/2014 11:40:16 PM
Syed Junaid Hashmi JAMMU, Aug 31: In complete violation of the directions of Ministry of Home Affairs (MHA), Directorate of Distance Education (DDE) in Jammu University has created new rules and regulations to deny admissions to children of Kashmiri Pandit migrants and those from various parts of Jammu region. According to sources, DDE has created two categories of students i.e. one who are residents of Jammu region and the other who are either migrants or have permanent resident certificate of Kashmir region. In the admission for various courses including Masters in Education, preference is given to students of Jammu region or those who have done B.Ed from Jammu University. All the other students are treated as outsiders. Such is the manipulation of rules that a student belonging to Jammu region who does his B.Ed from a university other than Jammu is categorised as outsiders and denied admission. This is despite the fact that the rules clearly stipulate that the one seeking admiss...
