New Delhi: The CBSE on Tuesday announced the postponement of the Central Teacher Eligibility Test (CTET) in flood-hit Jammu and Kashmir.

"In view of the current situation due to floods in Jammu and Kashmir, the board has decided to postpone the CTET-September 2014 examination that was scheduled to be held at the Srinagar centre," the Central Board of Secondary Education (CBSE) said in a statement.
