The last date of admission to the JMI University has been extended by the Jamia Millia Islamia University for the students from Jammu and Kashmir. The date was extended because of the communication gap in the valley post the abrogation of article 370. Students from the Jammu and Kashmir can now apply until October 10.
"The Vice-Chancellor, Jamia Millia Islamia is pleased to extend the admission date up to October 10, 2019, for the students of J&K who could not report in time to complete the admission formalities. Now, the affected students of J&K can submit the applications to the office of the Resident Commissioner, J&K till 10 October 2019," the letter said.
In a letter written to the resident commissioner of the Jammu and Kashmir, the university had mentioned that a number of the students from J and K had approached the university for admissions.
It appears that students have applied and appeared for the entrance test but could not see the results due to the restrictions imposed in the valley and hence failed to complete the admission formalities on time, the university mentioned in the letter.
The governor of J and K also said that such cases of the students must be taken up and their grievances must be addressed. "It is appropriate that the office of the Resident Commissioner, J&K act as Nodal Office to collect all the applications of such candidates who were in the merit list but could not complete the admission formalities due to the communication gap owing to the prevailing situation in the State w.e.f. 05 August. 2019," the varsity wrote in the letter.
According to the official from the university, the resident commissioner will submit the list of the students to the university and the university will check the names with its records and they will be granted admissions accordingly.
"The names of students will be tallied with the names that were shortlisted based on the entrance examinations and those students will then be contacted," the official said.
