This contract must immediately be cancelled. What is the point of black listing a company if they are going to be awarded plum contracts. This contract is even more dangerous because it puts at risk the future of scores of aspirants who rely on JKSSRB to conduct recruitment exams, read the tweet of Omar Abdullah.

Earlier today, a score of JKSSB aspirants in Jammu and Srinagar took to the streets to protest against the purported grant of a contract to APTECH Ltd. for the conduct of various exams.

The students demanded that the LG administration must investigate why paper leak and scam issues only occur in Kashmir.
