With major protests and demonstrations being planned across the state of Assam as part of the anti-CAB agitation on Sunday, “Many students may not be able to travel to the exam centres. The safety and security of the centres and the personnel are also taken into account while deciding this. The NTA will wait and take feedback from the local authorities before announcing the date for candidates from Assam and Meghalaya,” said an NTA official.
Another reason for the postponement of the exam has been the closure of the internet services in many part of the North east region.
There are 6,981 from Assam who have registered for the CSIR-UGC NET. In all there are 20 centres spread across Dibrugarh, Guwahati, Jorhat, Sivasagar, Silchar and Tezpur.
CSIR-UGC NET is conducted for Junior Research Fellowship and Eligibility for Lectureship (LS)/Assistant Professorship for following subjects — Life Sciences, Physical Sciences, Chemical Sciences, Earth Sciences and Mathematical Sciences.
