In a bid to conduct professional examinations in a smooth manner and stop students from using cell phones and other electronic devices, Kashmir University has decided to install jammers in Humanities Hall where round the year professional examinations are being conducted.
All the formalities in this regard have been fulfilled while the machinery has been procured as well. Kashmir University has flouted tenders for the installation of this machinery.
The jammers will be installed to stop students from using mobile phones, Bluetooth and other related electronic devices.
A Kashmir University official told CNS that this step would help us to conduct professional examinations like BUMS, MBBS, MDMS, BDS smoothly. “Usually, we could not frisk female students properly and they usually carry their mobiles with them during examinations. Now, we can easily detect all the electronic devices and the biggest advantage is that mobile phones, Bluetooth and other electronic devices will not function because of the presence of jammers,” he said.
When contacted, Registrar Kashmir University, Professor Zaffar Ahmed Reshi told CNS that during examinations students often complain that their mobile phones are misplaces as we seize cell phones from all the students. “Now they carry mobile phones along with them and we have no problem,” he said adding we are looking at the financial aspect and if we find it affordable, we will install these jammers,” he said.
