New Delhi, January 25, 2020
The Government has made special provisions for candidates from Kashmir to apply for the Joint Entrance Test 2020 (JET 2020) for admission to the Film and Television Institute of India (FTII), Pune and Satyajit Ray Film and Television Institute (SRFTI), Kolkata.
The admission process for the two institutes is now fully online.
However, considering that internet services are still not fully operational in Kashmir, candidates from this region of the Union Territory have been given the opportunity to apply offline for JET 2020 as well, an official press release said.
FTII and SRFTI, in coordination with J&K Academy of Art, Culture and Languages, have made it possible for the candidates ordinarily residing in the Kashmir region of the Union Territory of J&K, to apply for JET2020 by filling the application and depositing the fee offline.
Hard copies of application forms will be made available at the office of J&K Academy of Art, Culture and Languages (JKAACL), Lalmandi, Srinagar, from January 24 onwards in a way that provides about a week's window for the candidates to fill the Application Form and deposit the same along with the Demand Draft of the requisite fee at JKAACL's Lal Mandi office during working hours, on or before the last date January 31.
Candidates desirous of seeking admission to FTII and SRFTI, both leading educational institutions in the art and craft of film making and television production, need to go through a multi-stage selection process from this year.
This year, SRFTI is conducting JET 2020 examination, which will be on Saturday, February 15 (afternoon) and Sunday, February 16 in two sessions (forenoon/afternoon).
