JEE in Punjabi too after English, Hindi and Gujarati

Punjab Minister Tript Rajinder Singh Bajwa requested the joint technology entrance exam (main) to be conducted in Punjabi and other regional languages too.

In his letter to Union HRD Minister Ramesh Pokhriyal Nishank, the Punjab Minister for Higher Education and Languages made the request.

“The entrance test was initially conducted in English, Hindi, and Gujarati. However, on the request of the various state governments, the Union Ministry decided that from 2021 this entrance test would be conducted in Assamese, Bengali, Tamil, Kannada, Urdu, Marathi, Oriya and Telugu as well,” Bajwa has written to the Union minister, said a Punjab government statement here.

The statement quoted the minister as saying that it is very unfortunate that Punjabi was not included in this list "that specifically discriminates against this language."

The Punjab minister said the entrance test for JEE (Main) is an important test through which admissions are made to technology and architecture courses in the country's leading engineering colleges, like IITs.

Previously, the Central Board of Secondary education (CBSE) conducted this test but the development ministry of Human Resource is now conducting this test through the National Testing Agency (NTA), he said.

Bajwa said that if Panjabi language is not included in this test list of languages, hundreds of Punjab students will not be able to join the country’s prestigious engineering colleges.

"If this facility is not provided to state students, several of them would be forced to study in English or Hindi that would prove to be a major obstacle to the development of the Punjabi language," he wrote. He advised the Minister of the Union to take immediate action to add Punjabi to the JEE (Main) entrance test list of languages.
