IUST postpones festival

Srinagar: Islamic University of Science and Technology (IUST), Awantipora, has postponed the two-day national festival that was scheduled to take place on June 24 and 25.
“As summer semester examinations in most educational institutions across India fall in August, IUST’s Talent Club, which is organising the event, has been receiving requests to postpone the event. So, in order to ensure maximum participation, the organising committee has decided to hold the event on August 11 and 12,” the varsity said in a handout on Wednesday.
“We sincerely apologise for the inconvenience it may cause to a few sections of the audience,” it added.
