A fake postponement notice for the UGC NET EXAM 2022 issued by the NTA was circulated on social media, creating confusion among aspirants. An investigation was conducted for transparency of the news circulated.
The viral notification was then proved to be false news, according to an investigation by the Press Information Bureau (PIB). The candidates who were in a pickle after the distribution of such a falsified notice have received some relief as a result of this.
The fake notice stated, “The NTA will conduct the UGC-National Eligibility Test (NET) in December 2021 and June 2022 (merged cycles) for Junior Research Fellowship and eligibility for Assistant Professor on August 12, 13, and 14 of 2022. Additionally, it stated that the computer-based test had been delayed for a number of reasons.
The PIB fact check revealed that the NTA has not really issued any such notice.
Prior to important exams, there have been reports of fake notices circulating on social media. Candidates and hopefuls should be careful and only rely on information published by relevant authorities on official websites.
Prior to this, the NTA has made the UGC-NET admission cards available for December 2021 and June 2022 (merged cycles). The first phase examinations for the merged circles were held on several dates in July. The second phase tests are expected to take place on August 12, 13, and 14. Candidates should frequently visit the official websites to acquire the most recent updates.
