The Act accords functional autonomy to the Board in the conduct of Entrance Test(s)
and making of selection of candidates for various professional courses to ensure
that it remains free from any external interference or extraneous consideration(s)
in discharge of its statutory functions. Subject to the constitutional provisions
and guarantees, the Board will be discharging its statutory obligation in a fair
and transparent manner strictly in conformity with the said Act, the Jammu & Kashmir
Board of Professional Examinations Rules, 2014, MCI & DCI Regulations. Accordingly,
merit alone will prevail in the matter of selections/admissions.
The fast emerging new technologies have impacted all fields of human activity. The
Board can thus bring about more efficiency, transparency and speed in organising
Entrance Tests and in carrying out subsequent admission processes by adopting new
technologies and making their optimum use. It is in tune with this commitment that
the Board has decided to extend the facility of video-counselling to the candidates
for admission to various professional courses during the year-2016. They will have
video-counselling which will save a lot of their precious time,apart from distance and expenditure.
The entire process of submission of application forms has been made on-line since
2015. Further, the stakeholders will get timely adequate information on the
Board‘s website in conformity with the provisions of Jammu & Kashmir Right to Information
Act, 2009 which has empowered the stakeholders/information seekers to have timely
information as per the said statute.
The stakeholders, particularly the candidates, can easily access information they
need concerning Entrance Tests on internet at the time and place convenient to them.
Over the years, the website has facilitated and increased the interaction between
the functionaries of the Board, the candidates and other stakeholders at large.
More importantly, website of the Board has made its functioning and activities more
transparent and open to public scrutiny. It is our endeavour to constantly review
functioning of the Board and bring further improvements therein on a regular basis.
The Board has decided to pass on the benefits of technology to the candidates by
slashing the fees of candidates.. The candidates are advised in their own interest
to strictly adhere to the instructions in the notifications of BOPEE and follow
the time-lines set-therein for different processes.
We shall feel obliged for suggestions and comments from students, parents and members
of the general public in respect of format and content of the website for widening
its scope and reach in days to come as also in the matter of discharge of its aforementioned
statutory functions/obligations to the satisfaction of all interested persons, particularly
the candidates. Constructive suggestions are most welcome but don’t fiddle with
the system. It is in the interest of all to strengthen the system and any step or
suggestion in this behalf will be highly appreciated.
Hope to interact with you at the time of counselling.
