Kashmir University Faces Backlash as 1st Semester Students Denied Vehicle Entry Passes

University of Kashmir

Srinagar, Jammu and Kashmir: In a controversial move, Kashmir University (KU) has come under scrutiny for allegedly depriving first-semester students, enrolled in July 2023, of the right to apply for vehicle entry passes. Despite earlier assurances from the proctor, responsible for issuing these passes, students are now expressing frustration as their applications are not being accepted.

The proctor office had initially informed students that their applications for vehicle entry passes would be accepted after October 15, 2023. However, students claim that even after diligently approaching the university authorities, their requests are still not being acknowledged, leaving them in a state of confusion and inconvenience.

One affected student, who preferred to remain anonymous, stated, “We were told that our applications would be accepted after the 15th of October, and now, when we go to the office daily, the proctor is not accepting our applications. It’s causing a lot of distress, especially for those who commute from a distance.”

As a result of this alleged administrative lapse, students are compelled to park their vehicles outside the university gates and are being charged for parking facilities. This has triggered dissatisfaction among the student community, with some viewing it as an additional financial burden.

A concerned scholar at Kashmir University, speaking to Zehr un Nisa, a reporter at JKYouth.com, expressed their dismay, saying, “Forcing students to park their vehicles outside and then charging them for parking is another way of extracting money from students. This is unjust and adds an unnecessary financial strain on the already burdened students.”

The situation has prompted calls for the university administration to address the issue promptly and transparently. Students are urging the authorities to honor the earlier commitment made by the proctor and facilitate the smooth processing of their vehicle entry pass applications.

JKYouth.com will continue to monitor this situation and provide updates as the story develops. The university administration has not yet issued an official statement regarding the matter.

About JKPDD:

Power Development Department (PDD) is one of the state government departments of Jammu and Kashmir responsible for all functions associated with the transmission and distribution of electric power inside the state. The production sector is supported by J & K State Power Development Corporation (JKSPDC).

The Jammu and Kashmir State Energy Development Department works like any other electricity board in the country and around the world. Unlike other electricity boards in the country that collect revenue for their respective governments, the JKPDD is the only one of its kind that acts as a sink for the state treasury.

In fact, the JKPDD does not accumulate revenues in proportion to the quantum of electricity produced, purchased from other states and distributed by the ministry to the general public, but there is rather a significant variation in the discrepancy. Although the department does exceptionally well and the revenue mix is gradually increasing each year, so far the government has not yet been amortized by making profits through the department.

One should not be considered and start doubting the efficiency of the engineers and employees of the department, but the reasons why the JKPDD is a non-profit organization is other than technical and managerial, but the sphere includes the political factors, social and geographical. to a very large extent. There is no malfunction because of the branch, however different factors contribute to the purpose.

Recently, the unbundling of the JKPDD was cited by some as one of the remedies for the losing department but the same thing cannot be validated and this is not factual in my opinion. My point is that by unbundling the department, the government will add to our miseries, if not more.

The Power Development Corporation currently the SPDC that was previously part of the G & T (Generation and Transmission) wing of the Energy Development Department was in the 1990s separated from the DP and therefore unbundling started from this moment, by the Generation Wing turning into a society.
