Admission of students under PMSSS
Masoodi appreciates role of State Governor
Srinagar: The erstwhile J&K State Commission for Protection of Women and Child Rights Thursday thanked Governor Satya Pal Malik for ensuring the admission of those Kashmiri students under Prime Minister’s Sponsored
Scholarship Scheme who were unable to attend different colleges across India on the scheduled date due to communication blockade.
The Chairperson of erstwhile J&K State Commission for Protection of Women and Child Rights, Vasundra Pathak Masoodi in a statement said that some students from Kashmir were selected under J&K Prime Minister’s Sponsored
Scholarship Scheme (JKPMSSS) in different colleges of University of Delhi, but due to disruption in the communication, the students were unable to attend the colleges on the scheduled date and time and they were initially
denied admission by the authorities of Delhi University.
“Subsequently, these students approached the Chairperson for help and intervention in the matter. Similarly, some other cases of denial of admission to students from Kashmir in various Universities/Institutions were also
reported. The Commission after receiving the complaints took cognizance of the seriousness of the matter with regards to the admission in different universities across India, raised up the issue with Governor of Jammu and
Kashmir and informed about the difficulties faced by the students from Kashmir at different Universities.”
“Consequent upon that, the Governor of Jammu and Kashmir was generous enough and pleased to give a patient hearing to some of these students from Kashmir and immediately passed necessary directions to ensure smooth admission
for them. Consequently, the students have now got admission in various universities.
“The kind act of sympathy and encouragement by the Governor has been hugely acknowledged and widely appreciated by the students across Kashmir,” Masoodi said and expressed deep sense of gratitude for the Governor. (KNT)
