Will move to court to challenge varsity’s reply: Candidates
Srinagar: University of Kashmir refusing to consider LLB as a graduation degree has left the candidates high and dry and they have decided to challenge the varsity’s stand in the court.
According to the candidates, the varsity in a written reply to the question posed by one of the candidates has refused to consider the LLB as a graduation degree.
Samir-ul-Wahid, an aggrieved candidate while talking to ‘Precious Kashmir’ said that as per the varsity, LLB is not a graduation degree. “Surprising, as it may be for most of the learned people, especially to the law students, one may ask what it is then if not a graduation degree and why not,” a candidate said.
He said in reply to his representation for considering LLB as his graduation degree instead of B.Sc for the post of Junior Assistant in Kashmir University, the varsity in a written letter has mentioned that “he is informed that basic eligibility for pursuing LLB is bachelor’s degree in any discipline and as such cannot be considered as a graduate degree itself.”
The candidate said he asked the varsity authorities to specify what value LLB degree holds then, but didn’t get any answer from the concerned. He said it is unfortunate that it took nearly one year of the varsity authorities to reply to his representation.
Samir-ul-Wahid added that he made the representation 11-12-2019 and received a reply on 2nd September this year.
The candidate said he fails to understand why he is not eligible for NET exam on the basis of LLB. “I am unable to understand if anyone issues an advertisement for a job which requires PG minimum Qualification, where do I stand with LLB?”
Samir-ul-Wahid added that LLB cannot be lower than a graduation at least.
The candidate further said he has hired a counsel to challenge the varsity’s reply in the court. “I have decided to move to the court to challenge the reply given to my representation. I have hired a counsel and will fight for it,” he Samir-ul-Wahid.
