A donkey has been given a hall ticket to appear for an examination in Jammu and Kashmir. Yes, you heard it right, the donkey was issued a hall ticket for April 29 exam for the recruitment rest for naib tehsildars.
A prankster seems to have got an admit card issued by the Jammu and Kashmir Services Selection Board in the name of Kachur Khar (brown donkey) for the test scheduled for Sunday.
A photograph of the card, with the animal's photograph on it, was circulated on Twitter and Facebook. Calls to Board officials were not answered.
One Twitter user lamented the waste of resources. "It is ridiculous to get a system-generated card in the name of a donkey and then make it a news. It only shows how much extra time we have for wastage. Grow up," the user wrote.
A Facebook user lashed out at the Board. "This application form could have been deleted or cancelled easily by SSB officials from the system because the issue was already highlighted in 2015," he said.
In 2015, the Board of Professional Entrance Examinations issued an admit card to a cow for an examination.
