Ms. Punika Mahajan, Coordinator, Aryans Group of Colleges said that since last 3-4 years in Punjab the January Batch admissions were permitted, gradually it becomes very popular especially amongst Kashmiri students because they use to save their precious 6 months by starting their studies in technical courses in January instead of July- August. But this year this batch has been stopped. Ms Mahajan requested Education Minister to further request Punjab Government to restart January Batch admissions. She said that in foreign countries there are winter and fall session admissions. Because of ongoing disturbance in valley thousands of students could not secure their admissions in 2016-2017. Education Minister assured that in the interest of students he will take up the matter with Punjab Government.
Punika Mahajan also highlighted problems being faced by students selected under Prime minister special scholarship scheme (PMSSS).She said that as per rules maximum 10 students were allotted to each AICTE approved college on the basis of merit & choice. But hundreds of JK students from different parts of country especially from South India shifted to campuses where big numbers of Kashmiri students are studying. Ms. Mahajan requested Education Minister to take up this matter to All India Council for Technical Education (AICTE) & Ministry of Human Resource Development (MHRD). She said that when student is merit holder then the clause of maximum ten students should not be there and students should have choice for finally selecting the college
