JEE Main 2020 likely to postpone

New Delhi: In the wake of their country-wide strike called on January 8, the Central trade unions demanded the Union HRD ministry to postpone the Joint Entrance Examination (JEE), 2020.

In a letter to Union Human Resources Development minister Ramesh Pokhariyal Nishank, the unions urged to postpone the examination.

The letter read: “We request you to please intervene in the matter appropriately so that the exam on January 8 is deferred to some other date to ensure that the examinees do not face any problem”.

The JEE for admission to engineering and medical courses is scheduled on January 6-10.

A united platform of 10 central trade unions on September 30 had given a call for a countrywide general strike on January 8 over the government’s alleged failure to respond to demands of workers.

Owing to the proposed strike, there may be a dislocation of normal traffic movement as transport sector employees are also participating in it. The students appearing in the examination on January 8 may face problems in commuting, the CTUs said in a letter to the minister.
