This petition is to bring Your attention into the discrepancies in the distribution of PMSSS(prime ministers Special scholarship scheme for j&k students) among polytechnic qualifyied Students of J&k india.

J&k, the state having more than 28 private cum government polytechnic colleges & these having an intake capacity of 20 thousand students per year.Every year thousands of students get passout from these engineering institutes. About 90 % Students studying in these colleges are only 10th qualifyied as 10+2 qualified students always prefers to go for professional courses like BTech(incase of Non medical stream) & MBBS,BDS (incase of Medical stream)

The kashmir division of J&k state is still without Govt. Engineering college that too in 21th century.
Earlier we had Regional Engineering College in Kashmir, but the college was later on upgraded to NIT and only a few students of Kashmir make it to NIT after competing in AIEEE since the number of seats is very less compared to the number of appearing candidates which is growing every passing day. Moreover, the students who qualify their diplomas from polytechnic colleges have no option to enter into the NIT and , as such, feel frustrated since they help the situation! It is a question which haunts many including me and the students of Kashmir Government Polytechnic every time when we think about this matter. If they join private degreecollege outside the state, it becomes difficult and challengingas huge amount of money is required to do so.

What has been seen & observed that 12th qualified students are eligible for many entrance test exams like JEE MAINS,JK CET etc, but what about those students who qualified polytechnic diploma after 10th ?

Polytechnic diploma students suffer more in J&kstate than any one else as most of Engineering Colleges including NIT's offer 4 year Degree programme , since there is no Lateral Entry system in these colleges for them. Thus in j&k state there is no entrance test for polytechnic qualified students to do Lateral Entry to B Tech and hence they are forced to go for Direct Admission (i'e on full payment) in any private engineering college of country.
Now what about poor polytechnic students, How they can pay such a huge amount, Who care 's for them ?

The government of Jammuand Kashmir is making oft-repeating claims of providing Technical Education to the youth in the wake of rising graph of unemployment in the state. But has it ever spent a while in thinking about the career of these polytechnic students? There is not even a single government Engineering College in Kashmir and the students of different branches of Polytechnic Colleges are suffering in the absence of a choice for them to pursue degree after diploma within the valley.
10+2 students instead having options for many entrance test exams ,they are also provided PMSSS(prime ministers special scholarship scheme for j&k students). It allows many poor 10+2students to do professional courses but why poor polytechnic students are avoided for PMSSS and other such scholarships provided by AICTE.
Is this oppression over polytechnic students or polytechnic students are not poor's ?
I my self have passed 3 years civil Engg. Diplomae through JKSBOTE  in year 2016 that too with 79.13 %.Before this i have passed my 10th class Exams in year 2012 with a  percentage of 86.6% through JKBOSE. I  am hard worker and i have capability to  crak any Entrance test exams.From Nry to  my Diplomae,I have witnessed and my name was written in First 3 position holders of school/college.
I think my decision to go  for diplomae after 10th has ruined my life. Being economically poor i  can't pay my Fee for Be Tech. My family has a monthly income of Rs 3500 per month as showns Thesildar pattan, my Father was managing it with great difficulty  to feed we people and was  giving us fees & other dues for our( 2brothers &1 sisters) studies.
I did not want to quiet my Education carrier at just  having diplomae.
Like me there are thousands of other 3 years engg. Diplomae students, some of them may have more worse condition than me.
In nutshell we polytechnic students are also intelligent.we also have ability to qualify all National level Exams.Like others we too want to see our bright future.

The j&k eduction ministry should give a special care to polytechnic students and should be made eligible for all such scholarships so that poor students can do their degree easily
