 RTI provides old question papers to NET students
Thursday, April 16, 2009 More News...

New Delhi: Students planning to make career in teaching or research field can now ask for the old questionnaires and appear for their biannual test online.

Every year millions of students appear for the National Eligibility Test (NET), which is a pre-requisite for lectureship and award of junior research fellowship.

However, they are not allowed to carry the question paper along with them. Now they can send a Right to Information (RTI) plea and collect the old question papers with them.

In a radical order, the Central Information Commission (CIC) has kept aside the qualms of the Council of Scientific and Industrial Research (CSIR), country's premiere research and development body, that making old question paper available will affect its plan of conducting the test online, which will be introduced shortly.

The CSIR conducts the tests for science subject said to CIC that a question bank has been put up by picking up appropriate questions from previous exams question paper. "If the question bank gets exposed will act as a threat to the online examination system," it said.

However, Sailesh Gandhi, Central Information Commissioner discarded the argument saying that if academics feel that their system wasn't testing the basic understanding and instead was persuading learning by repetition, then they should challenge themselves those are setting the papers.

The CSIR has to provide copies to Mony Singla from Haryana before April 25 as directed by the CIC.
