Early Times Report

Jammu, Mar 18: The authorities conducting the Central University Common Entrance Test (CUCET) have not given any relaxation in the fee to the candidates of Economically Weaker Section (EWS) as well as Other Backward Classes (OBC), creating confusion and resentment among the candidates.
The Central University of Rajasthan is the coordinating university, conducting the CUCET, in which the students from across the globe will participate in a common entrance test to get admissions in the 15 Central Universities for under-graduate, post graduate, M.Phil, Ph.D and other courses. As per the application form uploaded on the official website of the CUCET, in the fee structure column, the CUCET authorities have considered EWS at par with General Category students as well as Other Backward Classes (OBCs) and they have to pay Rs. 800 as entrance fee. The fee for Schedule Caste/Schedule Tribe candidates is Rs. 350 while for specially-able candidates there is no fee.
On the other hand, the National Testing Agency (NTA) which conducts National Eligibility Test (NET) at all India level is giving fee-relaxation to the EWS as well as OBC candidates. The fee structure for EWS and OBC for NET is Rs. 400 while for General category the fee is Rs. 800.
"If the National Testing Agency (NTA) is considering EWS as well as OBC as a special category candidates and has been giving relaxation in fee then why the CUCET authorities are denying the same", an applicant said, adding that both NTA as well as all the Central Universities are funded by the Central governments then how they could deny the same.
"There might be confusion among the authorities and they should immediately clear the same and give relaxation and if it is a decision taken by authorities in discussion with the Union government then it is a deception with EWS candidates as on one hand Union government is considering these categories as weaker but imposing the same fee", another candidate said.
None responded on the phone numbers mentioned on the official website of CUCET while none responded to the phone numbers given on the official website of Central University of Kashmir while the Central University of Jammu has not given any contact number for contact.
