Why is CBSE UGC NET held?

CBSE UGC NET 2017 notification was released almost after two months of delay. In its recent notification it has marked the exam to begin from November 2017. Usually, the NET exam is conducted in January and July but the CBSE's decision to hold it in the year end intimidates students on the pretext of cutting down the bi-annual exam into the annual exam.
The decision of scrapping July exam was not received well by aspirants and protests had started against the move to curtail the bi annual examination to a yearly event. Activists of Students Federation of India (SFI) staged a protest in front of University Grants Commission (UGC) headquarters, ITO, Delhi against the move. SFI condemned the 'atrocious move' by the UGC to scrap the exam scheduled for July which was then scheduled to be conducted on 19th of November.
