Puducherry: The name of Pondicherry Central University is missing in the application form issued by Central Board of Secondary Education (CBSE) for University Grants Commission's (UGC) National Eligibility Test (NET) 2018.
 The online application process for University Grant Commission National Eligibility Test (UGC Net) started March 6 on CBSE's official website.

Students were supposed to enter the region where they have completed or doing PG in the second step of application. When the students select Union Territory as the region, the name of Pondicherry University is missing in the prescribed column where they can only select the option 'others' and have to manually write the name of the university in a column below.

Though the website had included the names of both state and central universities from other states of the country, the name of Pondicherry Central University, the only one university in the Union Territory of Puducherry,  is missing.

Students from Pondicherry University, who had tried to apply for the exam, conducted to determine the eligibility of candidates for the posts of assistant professor and junior research fellowship, are disappointed as the name of the institution is missing in the list.

"Pondicherry University is one of the finest institutions in India and the name is just missing from the list of CBSE. Was it just carelessness? We are totally confused on should we continue to apply or wait for CBSE to rectify the mistake. We need clarification," said one of the post graduate student of the University.  Prabhakar, a PhD scholar of the university, said that he had sent a mail to CBSE mentioning this.

On the other hand the university administration said the issue did not come to their notice so far. "That should not have happened. We will check it and do the needful after contacting CBSE," K. Mahesh, assistant registrar (public relations) of the university told DC.
