Jairam Ramesh reacts

Reacting to the development, Congress leader Jairam Ramesh, in a post on 'X', said, "Yet another NTA exam postponed. This time it is the CSIR-UGC-NET. Clearly, NTA has become Narendra's Trauma Agency for youth."

This comes a day after NTA announced the cancellation of the UGC-NET exam due to initial evidence suggesting that the integrity of the exam has been compromised. The examination was conducted on June 18. The Education Ministry stated that the UGC-NET examination will be rescheduled, with new dates to be announced soon. Additionally, the case of examination irregularities will be handed over to the Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI) for further investigation.
