The Central Board of Secondary Examination (CBSE), New Delhi has sent a letter to Human Resource Development Ministry (HRD) that board will not take the responsible to conduct the National Eligibility Test (NET) in June 2015.
Due to work overload and its inability to conduct NET in June 2015, CBSE said 'No' to hold the NET exam.
Earlier, NET exam was conducted by the University Grants Commission (UGC), New Delhi.
After so many failures faced by the University of Grants Commission (UGC) in conducting the National Eligibility Test (NET), the Central Board of Secondary Education (CBSE) board bagged the opportunity to conduct NET examination in December 2014.
Usually, NET exam will be held twice a year, in the month of December and June, for determining the eligibility of Indian nationals for the post of Assistant Professor or Junior Research Fellowship (JRF) and Eligibility for Assistant Professor both in Indian universities and colleges.
For the first time, CBSE had conducted the NET examination in December 2014.
As per the HRD Ministry sources, they have claimed that CBSE has lost confidence after its ex-chairman, Vineet Joshi left in November. The UGC sources have also said that the commission will conduct NET exams if there is no alternative.
Currently, CBSE Board is the responsible for publishing the results of class 10 and class 12, JEE Main entrance exam, which is conducted for admission to NITs and IITs. It is also responsible for conducting All India Pre-Medical Test for admission to Medical courses across India in government medical and dental colleges.
Due to the workload, conducting NET exam in June 2015 would be a tough task.
