Fee hike
This refers to an unprecedented fee hike of rupees ten thousand in one of the reputed private engineering college of kashmir. Whereas as per JKBOPEE norms students only have to pay the amount fixed by it. Authorities should look into this matter and take immediate action.Basit Khurshid More

Pollution control
It is quite disgusting that State Pollution Control Board (SPCB) has failed to save the Bandipora water bodies from the rising pollution levels due to construction of Kishanganga Project by the HCC. The news item carried by GK ‘Bandipora up in arms against HCC noncompliance’ is worth appreciation More

Sports council

Unfair hike
The government raised the fare of transport for Sumos by 8%, but the Sumo drivers plying their vehicles from Sumbal to Sopore have raised their  fare from 30 to 40rs which means a 33% hike. Transport authorities must see to it. Haris Rashidharisteli More
