The Joint All India Entrance Examination (NTA JEE Main 2020) for admission to engineering and medical courses is scheduled on 6-10 January.
Central trade unions wrote to Union HRD Minister Ramesh Pokhriyal Nishank on Tuesday, urging him to defer the Joint Entrance Examination scheduled on January 8 in view of their planned countrywide strike.
A united platform of 10 central trade unions on September 30 had given a call for a countrywide general strike on January 8 over the government’s alleged failure to respond to demands of workers.
As per the CTU in a letter to the minister, “Owing to the proposed strike, there may be dislocation of normal traffic movement as transport sector employees are also participating in it. The students appearing in examination on January 8 may face problems in commuting.”
