JEE Main Admit Card Delayed, Students Affected by Agnipath Protest Demand Exam Postponement

The Joint Entrance exam (JEE) Main 2022 was scheduled to begin on June 20, however, when the National Testing Agency (NTA) released the exam city intimation slip, it changed the dates to begin from June 23 and conclude by June 29. Now, the candidates are demanding further postponement of the exam claiming that the ongoing Agnipath protest over the new army recruitment route has affected travel routes as well as cause disruption in their areas.

NTA has neither responded to requests by students nor has it released the admit card yet. Usually, the JEE Main admit card is released about 10 days ahead of the exam. Now, with less than three days to go, the JEE admit cards are not out. Over 8 lakh students are eagerly awaiting clarity on the same.

A large section of candidates has taken to Twitter to express their demands –

The engineering entrance exam is scheduled to be held in different centers located in 501 cities throughout the country and 22 cities in outside India. This is the first time since the pandemic that the exam is being held in foreign locations.

While candidates from all across India will be taking the exam, due to Agnipath protest, several trains have been cancelled and Railway property has been damaged by a group of youth claiming to be job aspirants. This, claim students will impact their journey.
