Lack of vision no barrier for 5 students from Himachal Pradesh who cracked the NET
August 3, 2018
The National Eligibility Test (NET) is a crucial exam that determines the merit for assistant professors and junior research fellowships in India. For the first time, five visually impaired students from Himachal Pradesh University (HPU) have cracked this test!
Among them is aspiring singer Muskan Thakur, who was the youth icon of the state election commission during the Himachal Pradesh assembly elections last year.
Along with Muskan, who has qualified in music, are Anuj Kumar for economics, Vinod Sharma and Jasbir Singh Lubana for political science, Ajai Kumar for history and Priyanka Thakur for law.
Over 50 disabled students, including 12 blind students, were studying in the university. All of them are getting free education since 2015.
