New Delhi, May 26: The central trade unions  BMS, INTUC, AITUC, HMS, CITU, AIUTUC, AICCTU, UTUC, TUCC, LPF and SEWA jointly issued the following statement.

All the central trade unions of the country express deepest concern at the reckless decision of the government to increase the price of petrol more than Rs. 7 per litre, unprecedented dose of increase so far, at a time when the economy is in deep crisis. Food inflation has again crossed double-digit when slow down in the economy is unabated, all round economic crisis has overtaken the country.

When it was urgently necessary to take effective steps to curb the criticality of the economic crisis, government has moved in the reverse way perpetuating the crisis and pushing  the people, particularly the working masses into intolerable hardships.

Common Admission Examination Process with Weightage to Performance in Class 12th Board from 2013: Shri Kapil Sibal

IIT Merit List to be Based on Advance Exam Subsequent to Screening 

After a process of deliberations and consultations spanning over two years, a meeting of the Joint Councils of Indian Institutes of Technology (IITs), National Institutes of Technology (NITs), Indian Institutes of Information Technology (IIITs) and other Central Educational Institutions approved the conduct of a common admission examination process with weightage to performance in the Class XII Board examinations in its meeting today which was presided over by the Minister for Human Resource Development, Communications & IT, Shri Kapil Sibal. 

The multiplicity of entrance examinations that a student intending to pursue a course in engineering has to appear for has been a cause of concern to society. The burden imposed on the students in terms of time, payment of examination fees and the stress caused in scheduling and preparing for each examination is tremendous. The students have to perforce restrict their choice of institutions for which they can compete. We have been working on reforms in the examination system by moving towards a common national test to reduce the burden on the students and at the same time preserving the autonomy of the State Governments and institutions in devising its admission process.
