The University of Kashmir has come under scrutiny after failing to declare the results of the Postgraduate (PG) Entrance tests conducted on June 19, 2023. With no announcement made even weeks after the conclusion of the examinations, students and their families are growing increasingly concerned about the integrity and efficiency of the university’s examination system.
Traditionally, the University of Kashmir has been prompt in releasing the results of PG Entrance tests, often within three days of the conclusion of the examinations. However, this year’s delay has left aspiring students anxiously waiting for the outcome, causing frustration and uncertainty.
The absence of any official communication from the university regarding the delay has fueled speculations and raised questions about the institution’s transparency and accountability. Students, who have invested their time, effort, and resources in preparing for these competitive exams, are feeling let down and demanding immediate action from the authorities.
Several students have taken to social media platforms, including Twitter and Facebook, to express their grievances and seek answers. The hashtags #KashmirUniversityResultsDelay and #IntegrityofKashmirUniversity have gained traction, with hundreds of students sharing their concerns and demanding swift action.
The delay in releasing the results has had a significant impact on students’ future plans. Many of them are unable to proceed with their academic pursuits, such as applying for scholarships, seeking admission in affiliated colleges, or exploring other educational opportunities. The lack of clarity from the university administration has only added to their frustration.
As the wait continues, students and their families are urging the university authorities to expedite the evaluation process and declare the results at the earliest. They emphasize the need for the university to uphold its commitment to timely and transparent assessment procedures, which are vital for maintaining its reputation as a premier educational institution.
The University of Kashmir must address these concerns urgently and take concrete steps to avoid such delays in the future, as the smooth functioning of examination processes is integral to maintaining the trust and confidence of its student community.

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.

The Jammu and Kashmir High Court has rejected the bail application of a police officer and his son who were arrested by the CBI last year in connection with the police sub-inspector recruitment scam.
Justice Mohan Lal dismissed the joint bail application moved by Assistant Sub-Inspector Ashok Kumar and his son Jaisuriya Sharma, terming it “misconceived under law”.
The police officer and his son were arrested on November 6 and 9, respectively, by the Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI) for their alleged active role in the recruitment scam and were among 33 persons charge-sheeted by the central probe agency on November 12 last year.
The Jammu and Kashmir Services Selection Board (JKSSB) conducted the recruitment examination in March but the list of 1,200 selected candidates, along with that of 1,300 junior engineers and 1,000 finance account assistants, was cancelled by the administration in July following allegations of paper leak and malpractice. The CBI is investigating the sub-inspector recruitment scam.
“I am of the considered opinion that at this stage when the investigation is yet to be completed, it is the fittest case where bail ought not be granted and the petitioners/accused too have failed to carve out a strong case for bail in their favour,” the judge said in his 10-page order on Wednesday.
Kumar and his son had sought bail from the high court after their earlier application was rejected by the chief judicial magistrate, Jammu. In their latest application, the petitioners claimed the records of the case clearly reveal that there is not an iota of evidence of their role in the leak of the question paper and that they have not committed any offence.
Senior additional advocate general and CBI counsel Monika Kohli vehemently opposed the bail plea on the grounds that they, along with other accused, have indulged in a criminal conspiracy with officials of JKSSB and M/s Merit Trac Bengaluru, the company assigned the task of conduct of written examination.
She said they are among 33 accused persons indicted in the case and have played a “key role” in the scam.
“The investigation conducted so far has revealed that M/s Merit Trac Bengaluru was awarded (the contract for) conducting the written examination for the post of sub-inspectors in J&K and during the conduct of the examination, petitioners entered into criminal conspiracy with other accused based in Haryana for leak of question papers and sale of the same to the candidates in lieu of money.
“Petitioners/accused are highly influential persons and may influence the prosecution witnesses, whereby, the investigation may be prejudiced and more so the career of hundreds and thousands of aspirants have been marred/spoiled, the investigation is underway and more accused are likely to be arrested for sustained interrogation,” Kohli said.
She said that if the petitioners are enlarged on bail it will be difficult for the investigating agency to unearth the inter-state gangs operating in several states. Agreeing with the CBI counsel, the judge said recruitment scam in government services undermines public confidence in the system and causes grave injustice to the deserving and meritorious candidates.
Kumar is accused of arranging vehicles on March 25, 2022 for transportation of candidates, including his son, from Jammu to Karnal for providing leaked question paper in lieu of money and was in constant touch with other accused persons. On health issues of Kumar, the judge said the administration is under legal obligation to provide all medical facilities to the petitioners in judicial custody, if required. (Agencies)
