STATE TIMES NEWSJAMMU: Assistant Engineer (Electrical) aspirants, J&K have urged the Public Service Commission to defer preliminary exam for the posts of Assistant Electric Engineers (AEE), which is scheduled to be held on December 1. In a meeting held here on Monday, the aspirants raised serious concern over the issuance of tentative date by PSC for holding preliminary exam for AEE. The engineers urged the PSC to defer the exam as there has been complete shutdown of Internet in Valley and mobile Internet in Jammu province, due to which they failed to get any study material online or even offline modes. “There were no book shops open in Srinagar and even Internet services were snapped, thereby placing aspirants at complete disadvantage in absence of study material as well as coaching facilities,” they said. “The unilateral decision of PSC appears to have been taken in haste and without ascertaining ground realities. The nature of the exam is such that there has to be free flow of information so that any student can avail the facility irrespective of his location in the Union Territory,” they asserted. The aspirants appealed to the Lt Governor G C Murmu and Chairman PSC to postpone the aforesaid exam and the same should be held as soon as situation becomes conducive for preparation in free and fair manner.
