As earlier some years there is no option for those employees having BA in the SST promotion process. Some universities are given the opportunities to students to take additional subject exams along with BA to complete the process of BSc degree. After that these students are considered for promotion on the basis of their degree as BSc with science. So, some of the officials/ employees associations are complaining that this will not fair for those who are bearing actual BSc degree.
